I need to raise a subject with you - our wonderful members - to find out how you feel about it.

Recently we have had an increase in the number of submissions that have the member as the subject and the photographer is someone else entirely. This gives the admins a bit of a headache to be honest, because we have always said that the work submitted must be your own. On that basis we would have to reject all of these submissions where the member is the model.

Our folder, People and Portraits was never intended to be used by models and, personally, I'm really not sure that I consider modelling to actually be art at all! I do know though, that I'm one of the older members of DA and I may just be a little out of touch!

One thing that we are sure of is that we want this group to be what you, the members, want, so please let us know how you feel about it and I will adjust the rules accordingly. If no-one has any strong feelings I will have to go with my own, in which case photos which are not taken by you, our members, will be rejected.

Thanks for your help

Wonderful Rules


Welcome to the Wonderful World group! This is a group for all realms of artists and ALL skill levels. We are here to share the beauty of our world which means no nudes or political artwork please. Let's see the beauty that can be hard to find!

:earth: A few quality control guidelines have been added to ensure member pleasure in watching the group as opposed to just being a member. The following types of submissions will be declined:

:bulletblue: Fetish art of any kind.
:bulletgreen: Nude pieces (Tasteful nudes are accepted but left to admin discretion) or political pieces, as already stated. We also don't accept implied nudes. This means suggestive pieces as well as glamour in general. We define glamour as posed subjects.
:bulletblue: Pieces with blurry subjects, unless the blurring is intentional.
:bulletgreen: Pieces that look as if they were just thrown together; in other words, lacking general artistic quality.
:bulletblue: Pieces whose subject is confusing. If we don't know what it is, we will ask you. If you don't tell us, we will decline it.
:bulletgreen: Pieces that are greatly obstructed by watermarks (e.g, the deviantART watermark).
:bulletblue: Literature
:bulletgreen: Violence/gore, macabre, and other dark-themed pieces (depending on content and admins discretion.)
:bulletblue: Photos where the member is the subject. There are other groups for models. We expect your submissions to be your own work.

:earth: If you purposefully submit three (3) different pieces that go against our policies, we will kick you out of the group.

:earth: As a member, you may submit up to one piece of art a week. You must also place this artwork in the proper folder. We will tell you where to put it if it's misplaced so that you can move it without exceeding your weekly limit.

:earth: If you submit a piece to the wrong folder, an admin will notify you. You have one week to resubmit it to the correct folder; we won't do it for you. If you don't, it will expire.

:earth: Members are not to use the Featured folder or the Hidden Treasure folder. The Featured folder is set aside for the best of the month, and the Hidden Treasure folder is for work that has less than 25 favs and needs the Wonderful World members to give it a chance!

:earth: We have games now and then. It's your job as a member to see when they start and end. The same goes for contests.


To submit, you first have to join by hitting the "Join this group" button. Then, click the button "Submit art" after you've been accepted into the group. A page will come up that looks similar to when you upload a picture to your gallery. Just fill that page out and press submit.

If you want to submit one of your older deviations, you can go to the Gallery, then click "Submit to this folder" at the top right-hand side. Then two options will show: Submit a new deviation or Contribute an existing deviation. Click on the second one! Then a new window will pop up, and you choose which deviation you would like to submit.

This is not an elitist group! Most works will be accepted. I want it to remain a group for everyone to enjoy. :)

I accidently contributed this… to the wrong folder, and now it's saying I can't re-submit it for another 7 days... How I can I withdraw the submission? Thank you! :)
