Rules at a Glance

:wave: Welcome to natures-beauty-club.

We are a photography Group that concentrates on portraying the whole beauty of Nature.


:bulletred: Only Members are able to submit. "Join this Group" button is located on the left, under "Group Info".

:pointr: ONE Membership per person ONLY (no multiply dA accounts, please).

:bulletred: The only folder open for submissions is the one with actual dates of submission period in the title.

:bulletred: The submissions limit is ONE Nature related image per Member per submission period (half month).

:target: The total limit is TWO submissions per month: :target:

:bulletblue: ONE between 1st and 13th of every month (GMT).
:bulletblue: ONE between 16th and 28th (GMT).

:iconstopplz: Days between submission periods (14th, 15th, 29th, 30th & 31st of each month) are for Gallery maintenance purposes. Please DO NOT submit your images into Favorites during this time.

:bulletred: Photography category ONLY! Preferably in the 'Animals, Plants, and Nature' and 'Macro -> Nature' categories.
:bulletred: If people or man-made objects are present they should be of lesser importance in the image.
:bulletred: No devID, Manipulations, Stock images, Wallpapers etc.
:bulletred: No heavy editing. No selective coloring. No added textures either.
:bulletred: Diptych is accepted (A two-part paneled photograph placed side by side). Triptych (Three-part) and greater are not accepted.
:bulletred: No gore, horror, macabre or cruelty.
:bulletred: And NO pets portraits, please.

:bulletred: Images should be of good quality and follow dA rules of submission - correct size (minimum 400 pixels on BOTH sides) and correct category.

:police: Size does matter. We prefer photos which are larger than 400px, this means it will not only look bigger than a postage stamp, but it will also be big enough for others to see details that would otherwise be missed.

:bulletred: Photographs should be clearly in focus, neat and well presented (straight horizons, please!). No 'Snapshot' images will be accepted.

:bulletred: Your photograph will not be accepted if there is any additional text on it, aside from your signature.

:iconmajornoteplz: Submissions need to be no older than a few months (because your skills are probably progressing with time, so on a technical level, a recent image is better than one you did three years ago). If you have one that you really want to show that is more than one year old (especially if it already was displayed in 30 Groups or more), then please explain in submission comment WHY?

:bulletred: Cellphone snaps WON'T be accepted.

:target: You can only submit your own Art to Group Gallery. :target:

:police: Collections are for sharing works of others (unless otherwise instructed). Any self-suggestion into Favorites Gallery will be denied (and people repeatedly doing so will have their Membership revoked).


Group Sponsors:

Thank you for your generosity.
