*** Greetings members and prospective members! ***
Submissions are usually approved rather quickly. However, don't expect your submissions to be approved if you don't follow the rules.
That being said, please read the following!
Direct submissions to this folder are always closed. Admins are the only ones allowed to submit into this folder.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO SUBMIT (FOLDER)
Please submit ALL items here if you don't know where to submit. Many people do not read the folder titles. As such, we've made the process easier by organizing it ourselves (if you're not sure where to submit). You can submit 1 artwork per MONTH into this folder.
ALL OTHER FOLDERS
We like to separate artworks according to medium/skill level and we appreciate quality over quantity. Please submit only YOUR BEST WORKS into the CORRECT folders. There is a limit of 1 artwork per MONTH.
IF YOUR SUBMISSION WAS DECLINED
You either submitted it into the wrong folder, or violated one of our gallery rules (so we declined the deviation). Make sure you didn't violate any group policies or submitted into the wrong folder. We also look for quality deviations over quantity. That's not to say that novice artists cannot submit, just make sure you give us works that show effort. Little to no effort will be declined. Remember to give us your best works only, not just any works!
We also enforce "quality control". Every dozen of submissions or so, we decline a few if we get too many of the same folder submissions. We like to give variety, so don't take it to heart if some submissions get declined. If we get too many submissions into one folder while other folders get ignored, we will decline them. Art is about varied styles of ALL kinds. No one medium will be favored here due to popularity. Variety is a KEY aspect in art and should be acknowledged AND encouraged.
IF YOU WANT TO JOIN
When it comes to joining, most Filipino Deviants are accepted. Unless of course your gallery has items in it that violate dA policies, copyright laws, or our group rules like: pornography, overtly mature, sexual, or overly violent media, users that commit art theft or copyright infringement, or fake/spam accounts.
*We reserve the right to decline membership if your account violates any of the dA rules or #philippines gallery rules.
And yes we do actually check if dA users are in fact really Filipino upon membership requests. If you have nothing Filipino-related on your homepage at all, you have a high chance of getting declined. We want Pinoy & Pinay members that're proud of their culture. So please make sure you have some form or indication of Philippine pride on your homepages if you want to join! ^^
*Also, please take note that this is a group representing only Filipino Illustrators. We aim to showcase our people's creative talents from across the world. As such, other cultures are not allowed to submit artwork here or become members (just so hey can get free advertising). Regardless, even if you're not Filipino, you are still allowed to "Watch" philippines! Though we must emphasize that submissions and membership are exclusively to represent our Pinoys & Pinays!
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS + COMMENTS
Please DO NOT send notes, comments, or questions. We do this because ALL questions concerning why submissions get accepted or declined are already answered by the gallery or submission rules. If you break a rule or submit into the wrong folder, it gets declined (or if submissions are too similar in appearance it can get declined due to lack of variety as stated before).
For questions concerning Deviantart Policies or Copyright Policies, they are posted in our widgets & you can also find them by entering the very top dark-green bar under "More". Remember, only members can submit art here (and only in designated folders).
Please DO NOT post SPAM or questions on the homepage
Any form of art theft (do not submit things that you do not own/do not have explicit written permission to use; all deviations with resources must be cited, stock, and have the correct copyrights & permission rights)
Deviations with the dA Watermark Signature (the dA signature is highly distracting & pixelated, please use a modest-sized artist signature please)
Mature or Censored Images (many members are minors, any inappropriate material will not be shown here)
Nudity (partial nudity in ANY form whether male or female is not allowed; please present fully-clothed characters; this includes bikinis/underwear/etc.)
Hentai, Yaoi, Yuri, Slash, etc.
ALL other fetish genres/media
Gore, Macabre, Horror (excessive amounts of blood/injuries)
Explicit Violence (we do not want to endorse overt harm to others)
Hateful Items (material against a group of people, anti-items, etc.)
Spam Advertising, Commission Advertising, Contest Advertising (this is an "art-creation" group, so please visit advertising groups to post these items)
Personal Items i.e. Journals (we accept literature-based works only like stories or poems)
Our group aims to keep our gallery "family friendly" and safe to view for ALL ages.
As such, any submissions that are questionable in nature and content (or are related to the items we prohibit) will NOT be allowed into the galleries.
Thank you for your understanding.
