Joining and Submitting

Currently, member requests are automatically accepted. Please be mindful to request to become a MEMBER. We're seeing an increase in people who are accidentally requesting to become a contributor (staff position only). Thank you.

Submission Limit
Currently, submissions for members are on a 1/week basis. Images that are declined still count towards this limit, so please submit only your best work.

Submission Guidelines
Because all photos are reviewed before acceptance, here are some guidelines for what aspects will be looked at - please note that these guidelines are used to distinguish only those images which we feel are of a high quality, as these are the types of images we want to see displayed in our gallery folders:

1) Photography only. No manipulations are accepted, though we do accept minor editing.
2) Photo must contain a pet.
3) Sharpness. No excuse for blurry pictures.
4) Good use of technique.
5) Good amount of facial visibility.
6) Single portraits only. Multiple images in one deviation are not allowed.
7) We will accept close-ups, but not macro shots.

When a photo is rejected, we give a reason for this based on the rules above, UPON REQUEST. Please direct your question in the comment box of your submission, so that we know of which submission you are inquiring.

For a more in-depth discussion of the rules, please check out our "Rules and Guidelines" blog, found here:…
We have just recently created a new folder within the gallery and thought we should announce and explain it via the journal. The new folder is entitled, "Awareness" and is for those photos which bring awareness to pet-related causes. These photos generally break the rules regarding text on the image, but are otherwise group-worthy images. So that we are not declining these group-worthy images, and because it is important to bring awareness to pet-related situations, we feel these should be allowed into the group via their own folder.

The most recent example of this would be the following image

PetPortrait Members: Apologies for all the expired submissions. Unfortunately it is no longer practical to maintain this group. The founder abandoned it years ago, the co-founders are long gone, and now there are no longer even enough active contributors to vote in submissions. DA is unable to provide any assistance in reviving the group. So until further noticed, please consider this group abandoned.

Please avoid adding comments so that this notice remains as prominent as possible.
