How to Submit to a Group by Nessarie How to Submit to a Group by Nessarie

I've been meaning to do another Tutorial for forever, so here you are! How to submit your deviations to a #Group!

Members of my Groups #Hello-Sweetie and #1-Hr-WRITING-Contest sometimes ask me how to go about submitting to groups, so I decided that I would make a Tutorial so I wouldn't have to repeat myself.




I used the Groups #doctorwhoclub and #Hello-Sweetie for the visual references.


A--?? Is that--????? No, it can't be... it's... a...

Is it??? :dead:

Wow, you guys are awesome, really!

To receive a DD - one of (if not, the most) highest honors on this site - for something I did just to help other members, is something I never expected or even dared to hope for.

You all are awesome, and I love you! I wouldn't have made the Tutorial, if I didn't. ;)

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-05
How to Submit to a Group by =Nessarie is a very simple, clean, and easy to understand tutorial about submitting to groups. This is the ideal tutorial for anyone new to the site who wants to show their artwork in groups.

A very well made tutorial that's nice and easy to read. It's certainly very helpful for those who have no idea of how to submit to groups.

Only helpful one I’ve seen

On most of deviations I've seen, there has always been "Deviation title" by "Author name". How can I do it, that you'll see "Deviation title" in "Group name", by "Author name"?

I need it in a specific folder for a contest and I've submitted twice and nothing yet. No acceptation or decline. 
Caitlynthedoodler Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2015
I can only sent art to the featured folder when I'm trying to put it in a different folder, Im a contributor of this group. Could this be because of how the group was made or was it due to other reasons?

In a group I am co-founder of, we can't  figure out how to get the "Contribute Art" button on the home page, just the "Submit Art" button, which makes people upload a picture.  Help!

how do you submit art to YOUR OWN group
KittyKatKirby12 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
hello i have this group and wonder if u could help answer this question for me :3 
 some of my members tell me there is not submission ( submit art button ) on the home page 
but they can still submit art by going to the gallery. 
i was wonder if u knew how to fix that so i can have a submit art button on the home page

I know this tutorial is a few years old, but do you know what happens to the correspondence message if you don't hold on to it? Do you have to submit again?
Nessarie Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013   Writer
It just disappears. It doesn't effect your submissions. It's just a good way to keep track of whether or not you've been accepted.
Lupoartistico Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh, okay~ Thanks a lot.

Thx! This really helped! :D
QueenNay Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you so much for the tutorial! But I have a quick question:

It's confusing managing multiple groups over time. Is there any way to keep track of what art you have submitted where? Or is there a chance of having duplicates in the same group? Thanks in advance for the help!
Z0MGedELR1C Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
um. for some reason i don't see that bar. mine just says 'suggest a favorite'........
Karou33 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
but how o you make a group???
Deku-scrubs Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Wait, so if i close the message, i cancel it?!
Nessarie Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012   Writer
No, you just lose the ability to see whether it's accepted or declined.
Deku-scrubs Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
aaahhh good, thank you (:
Kagomexsamajin Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012

Rhasberri Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
How do I make it so that the members in my group can submit art to every folder? ^ ^
RinaRinRin Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012  Student Digital Artist
What happens if I click on the 'Withdraw'?
YaoiK Featured By Owner May 29, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
This.. actually was a big help! Thanks! :D I wouldn't have been able to do it without you!
niccolobonfadini Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I have a question for point 4)
If i click on that option, I only see one group that is the only one I'm a contributor of. All the other groups I'm member of (not contributor )do not show.... why?
Stealthfang Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thx this was a big help
Stealthfang Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
How do you view your art?
MsGingerBreadCookie Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012   Digital Artist
I have a question; in the second option is it okay to submit it to a group that I'm not a member of? Are there rules that you have to be a member/watcher to be able to submit?
Nessarie Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012   Writer
It depends on the settings of the group. Most groups - from what I've experience - will require you to become a member before you're allowed to submit anything.

There are some groups, however, that do have "open" submission, which means that you don't have to be a member of the group in order to submit your pieces. These are rare, though.

MsGingerBreadCookie Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012   Digital Artist
Thank you for answering ^.^ Thanks too for posting this; I learnt a lot.
Luyomi333 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
-.- Curse my tidiness mania. I always deleted those messages saying "pending". That's why I always got declined, I hope.
Make-ShiftBunny Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
Hi, I was wondering if you could help me with something. My friends and I started a new group, but we can't figure out how to make the submission process easy for our members. Whenever they try to submit their art to our group, it takes them back to the submit art thing and basically makes them submit their piece to the website all over again except this time they click the 'only feature this in the group' this is so they don't have to have a duplicate picture in their gallery. We want to make it easier for our members, please help.
Nessarie Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012   Writer
That sounds more like a glitch. I've never heard of the happening otherwise. I would ask the ~helpdesk.
XxDrewpuff11xX Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011  Student Digital Artist
who do you turn a member in your group to a co-founder?
VergeanneorBlossdex Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Thanks! But... Do you know how to make a group? I really need that toturial!
