What We Accept into our Gallery- Guidelines

This is a group for ONLY HORSE ART COMPETITIONS. Please respect that.

What I define as a horse show:
There is a discipline or set of specific disciplines such as show jumping, dressage and halter. There is an open and a close date, except for ongoing shows. People will draw their horses performing he discipline. At the close date the entries will be judged and placed. The competitors will receive prizes of some sort for their efforts.

:bulletgreen:We accept::bulletgreen:
-Competition Journals ONLY for what would be considered a show.
-Competition Advertisement art ONLY for what would be considered a show.
-We accept some group challenges. But they have to be looked over first. They can be a journal or an advertisement art piece.

:bulletred:We Do Not Accept::bulletred:
-Commission journals
-Import journals for horse breeds
-Breeding journals
-Sales journals
-Requests for art of any kind
-Help journals
-Shows that do not have an equine part to them. Yes you can have a show where there are dogs and cats and whatever else as long as there is a category for equine animals. If there are no horses involved please don't submit it here.
Or really anything that is not a horse show.

:bulletorange:Guidelines for Submission::bulletorange:
- Entries must have Deadline or Close Date of the show at the top of the journal/ad. I will no longer accept journals with no close date.
-It's a big help if you put "OPEN" in your journal title and then change it to "CLOSED" or "JUDGED" once the show is finished.
- If the show has not been updated in a year and still says it is open I will move it to the "Finished Shows" folder.
- If a show has reached its close deadline and does not show an extension for the close date I will move it to "Finished Shows" folder.
-If you know your show is finished please remove it from the group so it is not taking up space.

Please respect and follow these rules. I have been having a bit of a hard time recently with people submitting things that are definitely not horse shows. Also I ask that finished shows be removed by the owner. That seems to not be happening so it is up to me to clear away the finished shows into the finished show folder. It makes it a lot easier for me when the deadline and open/close status is shown at the top of the journal.
Hi all,

I have been running this group for quite a while now and in the time I have been running it I haven't made a lot of changes to it because I wanted this to be an easy to navigate, simple group for you all to find HARPG related shows and post your own things. That being said, I have noticed a steady decline in journals added to the group and new members. I am not sure whether that is because this group is not as appealing to post to or if HARPG shows have just slowed down all together.

SO, given that I now find myself with more time than I know what to do with, I was wondering if there is anything you think could improve this group? I am open to any and all ideas. You want a new folder arrangement, let me know. You want quarterly shows made by this group, I can make it happen.

Tell me how I can improve in the comments! And if you like things the way they are let me know that too!

Thank you!

So I submitted it to the featured folder of the group which should help. Let me know if I can do anything else.

Ehh it doesn't show up?

You have to accept it first. It should have sent you a request and you need to accept that and then it will appear in the group pages.
