Gallery Guidelines

These guidelines are meant to ensure the quality of our galleries, as in a nice collection of artworks of a variety of styles and skills, as well as keeping the galleries tidy and ordered to make browsing easier!
This is a work in progress and more things might be added, or other thinsg might be changed. We reserve the right to at any time change the rules as we see fit.

1. What kind of submissions can I contribute?
Most submissions that are complete and relevant to the group.

1.a What is relevant to the group?
Artwork that is either Vale related* or FT related**

2. How to I become a contributor?
You have to recieve an invitation to become a contributor. If you have not been sent one, you can apply for one by sending a note to the group.
To know if you might be qualified, consider this - you create artwork with effort and care and it shows in your gallery. You are familiar with either the FT or The Vale, preferbly both.
Note that if you have only one piece that is relevant for our group, you might recieve a fav instead of a contributors invitation.

3.What kind of medias are allowed?
All medias are allowed as long as they are well made and complete pieces.

4. How do I know which folder to submit my work too?
Refer to the Folders guide at the bottom of this page.

5. Can I put one artwork in several folders?
Yes, if they are relevant for both. For example, you have made a photomanipulation of Jan and Tek - this qualifies it for both the Photomanipulations folder and the FT Related folder.

6.There's not an appropriate folder for my submission, what do I do?
You may suggest a new folder to the mods at the forum or through a note

7. Is it only 'art' I can submit?
No, you may also submit prose and poetry, as well as designs, as long as it is relevant to the Vale and/or the FT!

*Vale related - submissions that have somethign to do with The Vale group.
** FT related - submissions that have portray or imagine something from the actual Firebringer Trilogy.

Special Note - we assume and expect that you have all rights to the submissions you make to this group. Art thefts are not accepted and will be deleted emmediatly.

What is the Unicorns of the Vale? Is it a club? Well, that's a dumb question. Uh, what's the club about?
Hi there! Unicorns of the Vale is a club devoted to fanworks created for The Firebringer Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce and The Vale, a fansite and RPG based around the book series. They're awesome books, and if you like unicorns, I highly recommend looking them up! The trilogy was out of print for many years, but was returned to circulation a few years ago. However, the number of book stores that carry them is beginning to dwindle again. You can still find them on Amazon and probably a number of other online booksellers.

The books tell the story of a young unicorn prince's quest to win back the lands of his people, lost four centuries before. There's a heck of a lot more to it than that, and there's a ton of fascinating supporting characters.

Sounds interesting... but are your characters based off of Unicorns of the Vale?
