PLEASE READ FIRST
This is a CONTEST group exclusively for Photomanipulation artists.
We are accepting Stock Resources as well.
We organize monthly contests with points as prizes.
Artworks must include credits and proper links to the stocks used. Please be careful of using illegitimate stocks, you can read here about them:
Illegitimate Stock and Copyright InfringementIllegitimate stock is something the Photo Manipulation Artist must always be on the watch for due to copyright laws and art theft. We can have our own work removed, or even legally sued if we used stolen stock to create our artwork so it's important to understand how to check if the stock we are using is being provided by the owner of the stock images.
Artworks must have used at least 2 stocks, just use of filters and paints is not 'Photomanipulation'.
Non-contest artworks can also be submitted in this group. Submission limits are 2 Artworks per day and this pertains to stock resources as well.
We don’t accept artworks with pornography, excessive blood and violence, racist or fetish contents; Eye, Lips and other areas of the bodies as a macromanipulation; artworks with too poor quality, WIPs and Before/Afters.
Only deviants with a minimum of 3-5 artworks in their galleries will be accepted to join.

Not legitimate stock tips /how to reportMany people ask me what this term means ¨not legitimate stock¨

first...the things written here in this journal, I did a long search. and I'm doing this to help and inform people about this subject.
and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
