RULES FOR SUBMITTING ART

:smallwave: V2 by Synfull Please read our complete SUBMISSION RULES.

Here are some quick guidelines:
Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Accepted art media: water-soluble media such as watercolor, concentrated watercolor ink, acuarela, liquid watercolor, transparent ink, India ink, Ecoline, coffee, tea, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, gouache and acrylic washes in a translucent manner.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate In the description box of your artwork has to be written which art media (ex.: watercolor, ink…) was used to create your painting. You don't need to name the brands. Writing "watercolor" in your tags is not enough.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate The artwork has to be presented properly (no crooked photographs or scans, notebook wires visible, paint sets and or brushes visible, blurry and so on…)

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Nothing digital can be added, painted or drawn on the artwork. Exceptions are: regular editing of the scan / photo (adjusting brightness / contrast / sharpness, cropping, adding watermarks).

Simple Smiley by ware4me We always write the artist the reason for declining the artwork. If possible we ask for corrections and for re-submisson of the artwork.

Hi =D

We don't have any contest in July :blush:

There is only one activity running this month, the world watercolor month, which is not a contest.

We accept watercolor submissions if they apply to our Submission rules.

One artwork is usually accepted in 24 hours, but it never takes more than 2 days to be accepted.
