Common Submission Decline Reasons

Reminder:
Submissions are usually declined for one or more of these reasons. Please review it and carefully consider your submission to these reasons (before requesting more info from the admins).  



This is a list of the most "popular" or most common reason we decline artwork. We will no longer send personal responses for these. If your art is declined and we do not reply with a reason why, then check this list before requesting an explanation...most likely it will be for one or more of these reasons.

All information & rules for submissions or how we break down the gallery folders can be found in our journals -- there's a categorized listing at the very top right of the group's journals page.

If you still have a question about your submission, PLEASE use the Submission Form when contacting us. If you don't, we will not respond to your request (there are too many members & submissions for us to "go looking" for yours in question).
Here's a link on how to use the Submission Form to ask a question.
