Hey y'all, sorry for the lack of accepting submissions. We seem to be quite understaffed, so some help is very much needed at the moment.
If you're interested, please leave a comment.
- must be active on deviantart
- must make sure that art are submitted into the right folder.
Many thanks.
Hey folks! So sorry for the lateness in accepting submissions!!! I'm so sorry to those who submissions have expired, please resubmit, if you like >_<
I got swamped with IRL stuff and for some reason the other admins haven't been accepting submissions--
anyway, I'll be increasing the submission expiry date, i suppose. And if things get too heavy, and if the other admins are still unresponsive, I suppose there shall be a call for new admins...
Sorry again! Have a good day!

I'm a group's member and would like to contribute to the folder "Traditional Media Besides Paint" but there does not seem to be a contribute button. I'm guessing the folder is full. Will you make another one available?
