GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION
As a refresher here's the definition of paganism: "a religion that has many gods or goddesses, considers the earth holy".
Paganism is a very broad, wide, umbrella. I will not google your submissions so I can figure out HOW it fits in at our group. Be clear in either the title of your work or description: such as Norse God Odin, Slavic Mythological Creature Alkonost. Divination Ogham Cards, Ostara Altar, Leather Pouch with Norse God Thor's hammer Mjollnir, etc. Remember because there is such a varying knowledge base I can guarantee someone is learning about new deities and new traditions all the time in this group. I personally think it's neat when someone submits art for a God I've near heard of before! I love to learn, and many others in the group would value that too. ^_^ All submissions should be CLEAR in their title and/or description on HOW they are representative of actual pagan religious practices and lifestyle. If the admins have any doubt your piece will be rejected.
The focus of all artwork submitted to this group must remain within the scope of real-world Paganism. We will not accept work that does not contain elements of Paganism, or if the focus of which is overshadowed by irrelevant subjects.
PaganArts is not a group for fantasy artwork. The magick we weave is real. So send us Thor and Loki, but Marvel's Comic Book Characters Thor and Loki do not belong.
Art with mature content must have Mature Content tags. We won't accept it without them.
Submit artwork to their proper folders. Misplaced submissions will be rejected! Review all your options before you make a decision! See our folder directory below.
Please do not submit artwork to our Favorites or Featured section.
There is a two submission per day limit for every folder.
Direct submissions to the Featured folder are not allowed. In fact that folder is now dead.
All posts related to the monotheistic Abrahamic traditions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) will be rejected as will posts related to various forms of Satanism.
Below is a complete directory of all our folders in this gallery. Here at PaganArts, we encourage our members to submit their art to folders based on subject matter over the type of medium used in its creation. For example, if you have an acrylic painting of Thor, we encourage you to submit it to Gods instead of Traditional Media. With this folder directory, there's no reason to misplace a submission.
FEATURED: This folder is currently dead.
