Submission Rules

:bulletred:Who Can Join?
This group is open for anyone who are currently residing in Australia! Whether you are an overseas student, expat, etc, please join the group and show the world that Australia is one of the best places to live in!

Submission Methods

:bulletyellow: What to Submit?
Any member can submit their work into the gallery folder. Members are encourage to mention the location of where the photo was taken. Photos taken outside Australia will be taken into consideration but may not be put through

:bulletyellow: Featured Folder
Submissions to the Featured folder is allowed once a week. Entries to the Featured folder will be judged with scrutiny and a reason may not be given to a denied submission. If denied, you could try entering it to the other folders.

:bulletyellow: Gallery Submission (Maximum TWO per week)
Entries will be voted against appropriateness and quality. The quality of submissions we expect at AP is that of something that you could see hanging off a gallery or at someone's home. Submissions to the wrong folder will not be accepted and a reason may not be given to a denied entry. If you feel your submission should've been accepted, please ask for a critique and one (or more) of our team members will give you one. Please don't let a denied submission demotivate you, we are simply here to help you improve your photographic skills.

:bulletyellow: Favourites
Share some of your favourite photos!

Who's running things here?

Nobody. The group's virtually abandoned.

Hi Fellow Aussies! Looking for a QLD Photographer. I do what's called Cosplaying. Meaning I dress up as characters from games or comics and things. I've just moved to QLD around the Brisbane area, and am looking for a photographer to have a photoshoot with. I'm not really sure who to contact or where to look for a photographer for the type of stuff I do since I'm new here. So if anyone can help or is up for a shoot please let me know! ^_^
djzontheball Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

This is only a new group and i am just trying to help it get off its feet and need all the support i can get to do so.

Time for a bit of house cleaning guys. The home page lists 2 gallery submissions maximum per week but the submissions page tells you to piss off if you try to submit more than one. I don't really mind either way but this could get confusing for new members.
PhotoByTrace Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks for the heads-up, I have now fixed that inconsistency.
Nomore4s Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi all fellow Aussie artists. I have started a new Aussie based art forum and really want to build a community of Aussie artists so we can interact and discuss favourite artists, events, classes, suppliers and all things art as well as discussing and sharing your techniques.
All levels and types of art are more then welcome. - New Australian Art forum - [link]
aradosev2687 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Can I make a quick suggestion? I realize comletely that :icondrewboy: is a really talented photographer and he takes some excellent shots but I think that you should feature somebody other than him in your gallery. There is so few deviantions by someone other than him in there it doesn't seem fair at all to the other members.
donnymurph Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
*drewyboy has 87 photographs featured in the gallery. We currently feature around 3000 photographs.

I hope this puts things in perspective for you. :)

Would just like to thank you for making me a contributor. Will do my very best in contributing to this group as much as I can. Thank you so much! <3

I am sorry to say that I too will be leaving this group, I have had several submissions expire and then get no response when asked why.
PhotoByTrace Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Hi Mike, Apologies to you and to others for the expiries. I have personally been away from dA for the past few months, and it would seem that has coincided with the absense of others in the team too. Hopefully with some new active contributors on the team to share the load we can get the group, member submissions and replies to members' queries back on track.
djzontheball Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
i will be leaving this group as it is to slow to respond to submissions and i am sick and tired of waiting for the submissions to be answered and if they decline they do not comment why it has been declined
westaussie Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I've also waited around 3 weeks to have art submitted. Could someone advise what the situation is with this group please? Thanks, David
DPasschier Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012
I am sorry to say I will be leaving the Group. Waiting 3 weeks for my photo to be accepted/declined is wrong. You talk about becoming a supa Group I think you should learn how to run a group first.
