Rules of Submission


:spotlight-left:RULES OF SUBMISSION:spotlight-right:

Be aware of Copyright - Stamp by gild-a-stock

To qualify as a photo-manipulation it must be an image that consists of elements from two or more photos that have been skillfully blended together.

A photo that has only been altered by the use of a filter does not qualify for this folder. There must be significant changes to the original scene beyond that which is attainable by using a simple filter.

:bulletgreen: Photo-manipulations must be of very good quality and of a high technical standard.

:bulletgreen: Submissions are limited to 1 submission for each folder per week. Submissions to Favourites (Member Favourites)
are limited to 1 per member/per week.

:bulletgreen: A photo-manipulation must consist of more than just the application of a single filter. There should be significant changes to the original scene beyond that which is attainable by using a simple filter or re-touch.

:bulletgreen: The use of Fractalius is discouraged unless used very sparingly.

:bulletgreen: In photo-manipulation (or any other artwork), if third-party elements are used in your creation, you must give due credits in all cases. We will not take responsibility for art works included in our galleries that have unauthorized elements used in them. Lack of credits and links to the original stock will be a reason for instant decline of a submission.

:bulletgreen: Nudity will be accepted as long as there is no porn and done with respect and not offensive.

As in all cases, the Admins reserve the right to decline a Nude submission if in their view it encroaches on eroticism, porn, or vulgarity.

:bulletred: We will no longer accept Fan ART due to the copyright restrictions that prevail over originals used for reference purposes.

:bulletred: No eye manipulations

:bulletred: We will no longer accept SXC stock unless you are able to prove you have written permission from the photographer/owner of the stock to be used in the manner you have used it. We will not accept stock from non-stock sites, i.e. flickr (unless the member has documented written permission from the photographer to use, OR the stock has applicable Creative Commons license; blogsites, lenagold, etc. IF in doubt ask.

:bulletred: No celebrity images may be used for photomanip, UNLESS you have documented written permission to use. This means you cannot use images on wallpaper sites as this is copyright infringment.

:bulletred: NO GOOGLE IMAGES

:bulletred: Please Note that we operate a zero tolerance policy towards disruptive and disrespectful behaviour from anyone in this group, and anyone found wanting in this area will immediately be removed and blocked by the Administration.
