Welcome to Vintagenic!

Here at Vintagenic we are dedicated to sharing the very best of pretty vintage-inspired photography on deviantART.
Everyone is accepted!

  • You can submit one piece of work per day
  • Please submit each piece of work to the correct folder!
  • Submitted work should be of good quality, with a vintage-inspired subject or style and aesthetically-pleasing composition & processing. We love that "dreamy" film feel!
  • Please, no black-and-white or monotone photos! Many are gorgeous but please read our reasons for not accepting them
  • Please no Mature Content: our collections should be freely viewable for our members of all ages.
  • If something you submit is declined:
    • Please don't take it as an insult - just because it may not fit our particular vision doesn't mean it's worth any less!

    • If you don't understand why your piece has been declined, before contacting us (and before submitting), please read this journal for a clearer description of what we accept. If you feel your photo did fit the requirements, you have every right to ask!

    • Make any submission-specific queries in the Correspondence section of your Message Centre

    • Please don't re-submit previously declined works.
At the end of each month, the best work will be chosen and added to the Featured folder!

Make sure you choose the category that best suits your photo!
There is a drop-down list at the top of the Submission window to choose from, which includes:

Transport - old cars, trucks, bicycles, trains, etc.
Fashion - featuring vintage items of clothing or jewellery
People and Portraits - of a person, or people
Nature - flowers & plants in their natural habitats

Does this group accept paintings if they fit with the theme?
ISeeTheLattice Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Sad, I thought a "vintage" themed group would take a liking to polaroid images...

Guess not. Leaving, dead group.

I've just seen how many comments you left about this - again I'm sorry it got you frustrated, but if a group that seems it may be inactive doesn't immediately accept your work (especially if it's not run by a large team - I'm just one person) don't take it to heart too much. You don't know what might be going on behind the scenes.

If you want to re-join and resubmit your work you're very welcome to now that I can be active on here again! c:
Kezzi-Rose Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello, sorry your submission expired. I took an unplanned hiatus from dA for personal reasons so some submissions unfortunately expired while I was away. It was nothing personal against your work. c:
