It has been many months since I last posted this, but since it seems that more submissions are made incorrectly than correctly, I will repost this in the hopes that people will actually read it. I am not going to correct your submissions for you; I will reject any submissions made to the wrong categories.
(The following originally posted Sep. 2, 2011.)
It seems that 2 out of every 3 submissions in the last few weeks has been submitted to the wrong category. As much as I wish I did, I do not have time to fix entries that have been submitted to the wrong gallery folder. If you do so, your submission will be REJECTED. As a reminder, here are the categories and their criteria.
-Traditional: Hand-drawn works or other physical media, such as paint, pastel, charcoal, etc.
-Digital: 2D art created via computer programs such as Photoshop and Painter. Does not include 3D renderings.
-Photomanipulation: Material primarily from photographs manipulated by manual or computer aided means. (Though I doubt many people do it the old fashioned way, but bravo if you do.)
-3D Renderings: Computer generated 3D art from programs such as Poser, Maya, 3DS Max (I wonder how Nintendo avoided any controversy with them?), etc.
-Literature: The written (or more likely typed) word.
-Photography: I have doubts we'll see much in this category, so I haven't made it yet. I know there are those out there who make wonderful props for such shoots, but they have their own homes and don't usually post them for free.
