:star:Two Folders Open:star:

We will continue to offer two feature folders until I can ensure a frequent changing of new topics.  Please, please, please review the groups requirements and rules!  I am seeing a higher number of domestic/pet and non-captive wildlife submissions as well as non photographic mediums.

:star:Marine Animals

Dolphins, porpoises, whales, sea turtles, sharks, skates, rays, fish, penguins and any species that either lives in or relies on bodies of water for their food source.

:star:Neutral Colors

Animals which naturally appear in shades of black, white, grey, brown, etc.  Note that this is dependent on the color of the animal itself and not the coloring of the photograph.

:star:Call for Admins:star:

We are still looking for a few active members who would be willing to vote on a few pictures every week or so.  If you, like me, remember what this group has been and would like to see those standards return please send me a message with a short 'why I would like to be an admin' explanation.  As I said, I will not entrust the group to anyone I am uncertain will respect our quality and members - but I know we have many wonderful members who would be an asset to the group.  Please include thumbnails of you best work, especially any feature folder shots, in the message to show you understand the standards we hold those submissions to.

We need members who can devote time to voting on folder submissions AT LEAST once every two weeks!!!  As well as answering any questions and providing feedback as requested by our members.  This is our main concern and we will introduce other duties later as needed or desired.

:star:Submission Rules:star:

You may submit 2 photos per week into the bi-weekly theme and 1 photo per week into the featured folder. The current bi-weekly theme is Herbivores.

Here is how to submit a photo properly:

1. Join the club as a member.
2. Open our gallery and click on 'Submit to this Gallery.'
4. Choose which folder you would like to submit to by using the drop down menu.
5. Pick your photo, and you're set!

:star:Featured Folder:star:

This gallery is for photos that represent the best of our member's work.  Staff members will vote on these photos, it takes two accepts to be included in this gallery.  Be sure to submit your best work because we will accept nothing but the best. One submission per week.

Lions, tigers and wolves each take up 10% of the featured gallery, which is a lot of photos of just these animals. We therefore will be being more selective when voting on featured folder submissions for these types of animals. Please take this into account when choosing a shot to submit to the featured folder, as lions/tigers/wolves are taking up a third of this gallery!  

For a visual guide as to what shots will not be accepted into this folder, please see this journal: zoo-photographers.deviantart.c…

:star:Our Affiliates:star:

Be sure to drop by and check out some of our affiliate pages!  Especially if you're looking for wild photo or non-limit groups while you're waiting!

Thanks Everyone!  See ya when I see ya! :)
