Photojournalism on deviantART
Pronunciation: f O t O - j-r na-l-sm
Function: noun
meaning: journalism in which written copy is subordinate to pictorial usually photographic presentation of news stories or in which a high proportion of pictorial presentation is used; broadly : news photography
according to Mirriam-Webster Dictionary
As Photojournalism Gallery Director it is my duty to bring to you the BEST photographers and deviations that come out of the photojournalism gallery. To me photojournalism is all about getting "the shot". What is "the shot"?  Well it's the one that brings you there, the photo that in one frame can tell you the story of a particular "newsworthy" event, be it a concert of your favourite band, movie premiere, a protest against a government, sporting event or even a street festival. Sadly, I have to say that 30 pictures of your cat Fluffy in various sleeping positions are just not newsworthy, so please post the

Unfortunately, WindSorcerous has decided to <a href=””>leave DA and so we must say goodbye to one of our feature admins. This is a loss to both UP and the DA community. Nina has an amazing photography based gallery, she's kind and honest and helpful and a real gem to have as part of the team. We will miss having her here, but we all wish her the best of luck with the future and hopefully she'll return one day.
However, it is my pleasure to introduce to you GFXPunk who will be taking Nina’s place as a Feature Admin. We welcome Josh to our team and hope he will make himself at home here.

Renaissance - Live Forever: Remix Contest
Live Forever: Remix Contest

In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city's largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export -- youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws the populace is kept in line and accounted for.

Cut off from the world for its own protection, the city has nonetheless
continued to expand. Now, 21st century skyscrapers overlay centuries-old
architectural masterpieces. And below street

What is News?
What is News?
News can be defined as “the presentation of a report on recent or new events in a newspaper or other periodical or on radio or television.” or in our case substitute radio and TV for internet, or we can boldly go one step further and discuss what exactly news is on deviantART.
Or more accurately what types of things should you be posting as news here on DA. I think the easiest way to define this is to keep the term informational in mind.
Is what you are posting informational and of value to the community at large?
Is it something that will interest a good cross section of the community?
Or is it something better suited to a journal since it is about you personally?
Let’s take those two concepts and check them out a bit. Some examples of things informative to the community here at deviantART would be news relating to the artworld. Something new emerging by way of technology that could possibly affect people on the site. A large event bei

:pointr: Director of Artist Relations

The purpose of Artist Relations is to strengthen the community spirit as well as network with fellow artists so that we may bring outside opportunities to you, and help you to hone your skills. The Gallery Directors are the first people you should go to regarding your galleries. They are the people you need to make gallery suggestions to, and ask questions about your specific genre, or seek knowledge from. They also act as your lifeline to the administration. They are here to support and listen, and I can tell you we've got incredibly talented, devoted and passionate people on this team, so get to know them!

Copyright and News
Copyright and News
With the advent of the user posted news system there is one issue we would like to mention pertaining to copyright protected news articles. The short is, they are not permissible. You can take a news story from somewhere else and summarize it and then add a link back to the original article and this is fine.
But if you copy and paste the article in full with no link back to the original this is a no no and will result in a warning. If warnings do not help then a short term suspension will occur unfortunately.  We should never see full copies of a news article and especially never be seeing the original copyright at the bottom. And besides, is this really you reporting news or simply taking someone else’s work and hitting ctrl+c followed by ctrl+v? Think of a news article in terms of artwork. Would you want someone swiping your art and putting it up elsewhere in this manner?

Hi! :wave:

I wrote a journal and a news article about Thuringia and featured one of your pictures in there.
If you like this kind of feature, I'd appreciate a :+fav: on the article - which would also help promoting your art.

Hi! :wave:

Ich habe ein Journal und einen News Artikel über Thüringen geschrieben und darin eines deiner Bilder gefeatured.
Wenn dir diese Art des Feature gefällt, würde ich mich über einen :+fav: auf den Artikel freuen - das würde auch helfen, dein Bild bekannter zu machen.
