Questions:

Which folder do I submit to?
When you uploaded your picture to DA you put it in a category. The gallery folders are the same as the categories. If you're still unsure where to put it, or there isn't a category for your deviations, you can put it in Miscellaneous.

My submission was declined. Why?
This could be for a number of reasons. Take a look at the submission rules and you may find your answer. If you are still unsure feel free to send us a note (including a link of the deviation in question) and we'll let you know why.

Welcome to Pretty-Perfection. I though it would be good to repost the original founder's rules when she set up the group. please read and abide! :)



This is a photography group, so if you'd like to submit your work please don't submit anything else.
You must be at least a member to submit work to this group & all member requests are automatically accepted.


* * * * *


Number of deviations you can submit:
Members - 2 per folder per week.
Contributors - 5 per folder per week.

If you are a member and would like to be promoted to contributor then please send us a group note.


* * * * *


What we do not accept
Pictures that are:
Blurry, Grainy or out of Focus – unless intentional
Uncreative  – e.g. instead of just sticking the subject in the centre of your picture try using the Rule of Thirds to make a more interesting image
Bad Quality  – we only want high quality pictures
Edited to the point of photo manipulation

When it comes to people and portraits we do not accept hate, racism, extreme gore, provocative nudity or pornography (we do accept some artistic nudity).


* * * * *

Thank you.

Admins

Our amazingly talented contributors.

Would you like to be a contributor? Don't submit a request directly, but join as a member instead. Every time a new member joins I take a peek at their gallery and if I see at least 4 pictures that I want want want in this group I usually invite them to be contributor.

This is not to say that the rest of you don't have talent. With out contributors they have been working for years to perfect their skills, so in a couple of years time you'll be just as amazing as them. How do you get to this point? Experience. Just keep taking pictures, and never stop. Practice makes perfect.

Only the Founder and Co-Founders are able to vote so I'm not quite sure if '13' is accurate. Even so, I apologize for not being as active as being an admin requires. 

I'm a full time college student and am in the middle of applying for Universities and arranging portfolios (both online and for interviews) so the only times I've been on here in the last few months is to upload a few images of my own, vote on a few submissions on this group and the other group I admin and leave. 

Each submission requires 2 votes to be accepted or 2 votes to be rejected; it's not uncommon for photographs to be stuck on 1 vote for each of these two options. It's also not uncommon for admins to skip submissions they're not entirely sure of so that someone else can make that decision (I, personally, don't feel comfortable with casting the deciding vote if I'm not sure whether to accept or not and would most likely just decline if I was forced to make a choice.)

Tommy is our Founder and he tries his best to cover everything, I'm only on for around 10 to 15 minutes a month (I'm nowhere near as active on here as I used to be) and I can't really speak for the other Co-Founders, but we apologize that your submission expired. Please feel free to resubmit them. And if you'd like to give us a helping hand so that this doesn't happen again to other submissions, I'm sure Tommy would be happy to have another helping hand.

Thank you for your quick, courteous and informative response (that immediately fills me with encouragement for the future of this group).

I certainly didn't mean to cast any aspersions and I hope you are not offended by my robust criticism of what I felt was a basic failure in the way your group was operating.
I do, however, feel that it is important that members or prospective members can see if they are likely to receive a favourable reaction to their submissions.

Thank you for explaining that only the Founder and Co-Founders are eligible to vote; my assumption was that Contributors were also able to accept or decline submissions. This discrepancy (between my perception and it's reality) could, however, hold the key to how your group could move forward and begin to thrive again.

Perhaps the contributors could be given the ability to vote or failing that maybe more Co-Founders should be sought?

Either way if members submissions are ignored and then left for a month just to expire this group will slowly expire :(

Sorry - that was an item the original founder started. Maybe we can look into this matter in the future.
