Automatic Approval *Update*Starting today, you can submit your work to the proper folder and it will be automatically approved. You no longer need to worry about the "Submit Art Here" folder. That folder is closed so we can place the submissions in their respective folders. Our guidelines for submissions are still in place and we will still monitor the folders to make sure your work is in the correct folder. Admin feels this will makes things run a bit smother until we can add a few more people to our team. Here are the current changes : We still have the one submission per month rule. (This keeps the folders from being overrun with miscellaneous works) We will have a SEASONS folder up real soon. For the sake of clarifying, this folder excepts all categories of art that represent/depict any season of the year. We would like to increase our submissions rule but we just don't have enough admins to help u

Still In Search Of...We are still in search of some people with admin experience to lend us a hand. I can bring some members on as "Contributors" who can help us with the daily submissions. The more people we have helping us out, the more submissions per month we are able to handle. (rather than the one per month rule). So, if you are interested in being an admin for this group, please send us a Note (or comment below) so we can correspond with you and get you on board to help us out. I thank you for your understanding in this matter. Have a wonderful day.
