No erotism or excessive violence. We strive to keep our content appropriate for Disney fans of all ages.
You may submit anything Disney; from series (like Kim Possible) to 2D movies (like Beauty and the Beast), 3D ones (Bolt, for example) or even stop motion films (like The Nightmare Before Christmas). This group is dedicated only to official Disney characters, therefore works containing characters from ABC, Studio Ghibli and Touchstone are not accepted.
We will accept crossovers with non-Disney characters but only if the featured Disney characters equal or outnumber the rest.
Characters from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" as well as the 2010 "Alice in Wonderland" film are accepted in addition to characters from Jim Henson's "The Muppets" movie.
You can post up to 3 deviations per member, every week.
Make sure you submit to the proper folders or your deviation will be declined!
Submit only your best finished works. That means no quick sketches, drawings on lined notebook paper or poorly photographed works, etc.
We do not accept works which were made using "doll bases" or "doll makers."
No disrespect towards other club members.
No self-insertion, with the exception of cosplay photographs only (again quality and decency in subject matter is still required.)
We do not accept photographs which primarily focus on individuals vacationing at any of the Disney parks (e.g. family photos, photos taken with cast members); the exception to this rule is if the photographed individuals are cosplayers or cast members themselves.
No screenshot reproductions (e.g. copied or traced still frames from films or pages of colouring books), unless you choose to enhance them (by making them look painterly, for instance).
Due to the large number of submissions we get each day, we will now be more demanding regarding the deviations we receive, meaning we'll be looking for a certain quality, just to make sure our members don't get flooded by our deviations. I know quality standards can be annoying for people trying to get started and everything, and that's why we will not accept only the very best works. Our staff will vote according their own definition of what is what is good enough to get accepted and what is not. Hopefully we will balance each other and get a somewhat fair way of voting. Thank you for your understanding.
Important: What doesn't fit in our main categories can be submitted to the Miscellaneous folder, so long as it follows the previously stated rules.
A quick reminder of what you can and what you cannot submit to each folder:
-Featured: you can't submit anything here at all, only admins can move deviations here. It mainly contains winning deviations from our past contests, or deviations we feel are so good they should be highlighted.
-Digital Art: Just as the DA categories, anything digitally/computer-made.
-Traditional Art: Here again, consider the category in which you submitted your deviation. Did you use pencils, watercolours and felts? Then it probably belongs here.
-Mixed traditional and digital art : Your art contains both techniques (hand drawn lines, computer made coloration for example)? This is where it belongs.
-Official and original characters : If there's an OC on your pic along with at least one official character (and ONLY in this case), this is where you should submit it.
-Cosplay: This folder is for YOUR cosplays, or your friend's/the ones you saw in conventions, but in any case, not for official cosplay such as characters from the parks.
-Photography: Photographs of the Disney parks, including characters, statues, decors and figurines should be submitted here.
-Crafts: This folder is for all of your Disney-inspired hand-made crafts which include nail art, origami, plushies, key rings, necklaces, textiles, statuettes and figurines.
-Miscellaneous: Anything that doesn't belong in the other folders: animation, stamps, desktop wallpapers, gifs, etc. ...
-Comics: Any multi-panelled illustrated narratives (regardless of whether they are drawn digitally or traditionally) belong here.
I think the Fanfics and Contest folders are rather self-explanatory.
We don't explain why a deviation is declined but you can ask in the deviation submission correspondance box, NOT on this page nor via notes, and someone will answer you. Often it's just a mistake (wrong folder and such).
Don't be mad at us if your deviation is declined because we felt it didn't reach our quality standards, it requires three votes to get accepted and sometimes contributors have a different opinion on what is good enough and what is not (that's why a submission requires 3 votes to get either accepted or declined), just keep improving yourself and submit, again and again!
