Rules at a glance:

:wave:Welcome to wildlifephotography.

We are a Photography Group with wildlife as a theme. We define 'wildlife' as any wild living thing that belongs to Animal Kingdom.

In regard to animals in captivity, we allow photos of them as long as it is not too obvious. If you are unsure of whether your image comply, don't hesitate to ask us.



:bulletred: Only Members are able to submit. And only people with several Wildlife photos in their Galleries are able to join.
"Join this Group" button is located on top, next to "Group Info".

:pointr::pointr::pointr: ONE Membership per person ONLY (no multiply dA accounts, please - offenders would be kicked out). :pointl::pointl::pointl:

:bulletred: The only folder open for submissions is Current Submissions one, with dates of the week inside.

:bulletred: The submissions limit is TWO Wild Animal related images per Member per submission week. Week being counted from Sunday to Saturday (GMT).

:bulletred: Photography category ONLY!
(Stock images might also be accepted.)
NO photomanipulations, NO photo-montages either, NO heavy post-editing, NO selective coloring, NO textures.
No devID, No Wallpapers, etc. No Scraps.
NO pets, NO domesticated, and NO feral animals, please.

:bulletred: Images should be of good quality and follow dA rules of submission - correct size (minimum 400 pixels on BOTH sides) and correct category.

:police: Size does matter. We prefer photos which are larger than 400px, this means it will not only look bigger than a postage stamp, but it will also be big enough for others to see details that would otherwise be missed.

:bulletred: Photographs should be clearly in focus, neat and well presented. No 'Snapshot' images will be accepted.

:bulletred: Your photograph will not be accepted if there is any additional text on it, aside from your signature.

:iconmajornoteplz: Not So Living:

:police: We DO NOT accept photos of dead animals. EVER.

A spider eating a fly, or a lion feasting on a freshly caught antelope is a fact of life. These kind of photos are usually accepted, they may be declined if they are unusually gruesome. Photos of dead animals alone are not accepted. After all, we are WildLIFE Group.

:bulletred: Cellphone snaps WON'T be accepted.

:target: You can only submit your own Art to Group Gallery. :target:

:police: Collections are for sharing works of others (unless otherwise instructed). Any self-suggestion into Favorites Gallery will be denied (and people repeatedly doing so will have their Membership revoked).

Our new group will gather the most talented artists here at dA and the most fascinating art when comes to bird of prey thematic. A significant amount will be reserved for handpicked bird of prey shots as well. I think our group have a certain affinity so let's pls affiliate!
