Dear members,

I have wanted to do this for a very long time, and am therefore very excited to make this announcement. I think that as members you deserve the right to a chance at having your photography be properly promoted by our group, rather than merely being automatically accepted into Favorites folders which if we're being honest we all know don't offer as much exposure.

Starting March 20th, you will be able to submit your photography into our main Galleries.


You will be allowed to submit 3 photographs per month. We will try this out and see if we need to adjust this submission limit depending on how much or how little you submit :)

Your photography submissions will be reviewed by our admins, therefore your work is not guaranteed to be accepted, it might be declined.

In the event it is declined and you wish to receive constructive feedback, I personally guarantee that I will provide feedback. HOWEVER, please only ask for feedback if you are open to constructive criticism, we don't want any bickering or hurt feelings. We will be tactful and respectful, please return the favor :)

There will no longer be a monthly submissions Favorites folder. Though we will continue to use Favorites folders for various other projects such as our Monthly Contests.

We will be creating a new Daily Deviations gallery folder where all photography DDs will be collected from now on, so you can easily find them.

We will also have an "Admin's Selections" gallery folder of curated art selected by our admins.

We will also have an "Admin's Photography" gallery folder where you can find the photography admins have submitted to the group and give their work some love.

To help you have an idea of what we will be looking for in terms of quality, here are some examples!

We hope you will be happy with these changes, please let us know if there's anything else you'd like us to consider altering!



Starting on Wednesday, all members of CRPhotography will be able to submit to our Galleries instead of having to submit to our Favorites folders. Please be patient while we go through this transition :)

You say you will give feedback but when I asked for it, it hasn't come. It's been about three days.

Please be patient. We receive a lot of requests for feedback and we all have busy lives. You will get your feedback, it can just take some time for everyone to share their thoughts in the backroom first in order for someone to give you a detailed response. Honestly comments like this are really frustrating, we do our best with the few admins we have working on giving feedback.

If we have past DDs will we be able to submit them for the DDs folder?

Mrs-Durden Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
Normally we have an admin who requests DDs into the folders, so the new DD folder doesnt have privs set so you can submit them yourself, you can note us the DD in question and we'll be sure to request it in :)

It is something new, for some, of course, not for me.
In my case, it makes me a little sad as I am (still) (inactive now) member now in a group with a similar system. I tried it for over one year, all my photographies (it was one per week) were rejected. When asking why, I got a convolut of insider knowledge I cannot know as an amateur. So, I gave up at least.

I know my photography is not as good as of many others, doing for years longer than me.
Well, I ask myself if I would have any chance to submit something?

I would say always give it a shot as it costs you nothing :D and if you think feedback from us would help we are happy to provide it! But it's true that we do have somewhat high standards, though we try to be as lenient as possible

Yes, I will give it a try ... right now, as I have seen the new submission rules have already started since Tuesday :)

There are lots of groups that welcome submissions from photographers of all experience and skill levels. If you don't feel comfortable submitting to groups with specific quality standards, you might have more fun in groups that operate with different standards :aww:

Well, my mistake. I should not have said so, but should have tried at first... and that is what I will do now. I am going to check the quality standards of CRPhotography :)

That is great news, it will give members more exposure. As a completely amateur photographer I'm not sure if mine will be accepted but I will try with some of my best then seek feedback if declined.
