NaturesHaven GROUP RULES

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 3, 2016, 5:49 PM


THE GROUP'S MISSION/WHAT WE'RE ABOUT


We are a group showcasing all quality nature related imagery on deviantArt.

WHAT WE ACCEPT INTO OUR GALLERY



We only accept animals, plants and nature imagery into this group.

We have high standards so please submit only your very best work to avoid decline.

If you are unsure what we accept and the quality thereof please stroll through our gallery folders, particularly the Feature Folder.

We accept deviant Features of Art andd tutorials, as well.

If there exists any man made form or structure within the image it must not be the main focus of the image. Please keep the focus on nature. 

All media is allowed

Fractals must be nature oriented

WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTED



We do not accept highly abstract works, including fractals, unless they contain clearly recognisable nature-related imagery.

We do not accept deviations with non-nature elements if they are clearly noticeable, or if the major focus was on them.

We do not accept any image that shows the eating of prey etc nor do we accept any images of animal death, and decay. We realize this is a fact of nature however, we do have sensitive viewers.

We do not accept any photography of taxidermy.

We do not accept obvious zoo photography or animals shown in cages.

No heavily processed photographs. While post processing is encouraged, this group will not accept photographs that have been processed beyond a natural look.

Multiple Images similar to one another submitted will be deleted or rejected down to one.

We do not accept any fetish art, Hentai , offensive mature content, stolen art, or work that violates DA Terms of Service.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES



All submissions are voted on before they reach our gallery.

Please submit to the “SUBMIT HERE” folder and your work will be placed into the proper folder periodically throughout the month.

If there is a current contest being run in the group, a folder with the name of the contest will be set up for you to directly place your contest pieces.

Please submit to the proper folder as we will decline images that have not been placed into their proper folders and you may miss out on the monthly theme or contest being held. (Contests are NOT monthly—but are instead held periodically and will be announced via journal post)

Regular submissions are limited to 5 per week. 

Contest submissions will vary from contest to contest and will be announced in the contest journal.

MAIN REASONS YOUR IMAGES MAY BE DECLINED



Your image violates any of our group rules listed above. 

Your submission does not fit the group theme of animal, plant and nature images.

Your submission includes a large focus on man-made presence or human form. 

Your submission is overly grainy or is a WIP (work in progress)

Your submission has an overbearing watermark that interferes with the viewing pleasure.

Your image does not meet our quality standards.

Remember-these are the Main reasons but there may be other reasons that are solely left up to the admins.

AFFILIATIONS/AFFILIATION REQUESTS



Possible affiliates  should not promote Hentai ,  fetish art,  offensive mature content, stolen art, or work that violates DA Terms of Service.

Possible affiliates must give a reason for wanting to affiliate.  

Possible affiliates do not have to accept only nature works, but they must have a shared interest in promoting nature works.

 Possible affiliates must be active.

 Possible affiliates should have at least 100 members.
