Opening a News Gallery Folder

Tue Sep 9, 2014, 7:42 AM by inknalcohol:iconinknalcohol:




We know that submitting a journal through CRLiterature can be frustrating.  We're going to open up a gallery folder for News Articles to be submitted to.  We'll still accept journal submissions from our members (instructions outlined here).

What will be accepted into the News Gallery Folder:

  • Contests, Prompts and Challenges.  Must include original literature, but not restricted to just literature; should be a clear theme; have a clear judging system and are not biased (only for members of the group hosting, or watchers of the deviant hosting)
  • Features. Literature features and interviews.
  • Projects. Introductions to new groups, lit community promotions, lit-oriented discussions.

What won't be accepted into the News Gallery Folder:

  • Non-Journal deviations.  But you're welcome to suggest friends' deviations into our Favourites folder
  • Journal Rants. The folder is for news, not your personal thoughts on a topic.
  • Personal News. If it's something that happened to you but doesn't have a thing to do with Literature, it will be declined.

Hello! I'm new here! I was wondering, would a journal on community spirit and how to contribute in a positive way to the DA community be accepted? :)

Since this is CRLiterature, it would have to be literature related to be accepted into the gallery.

On a side note, if you have something that isn't related to literature, you should be able to find a home for it at CRCommunityProjects in their gallery folders.

Understood, but as this is a News Gallery folder for CRLiterature, the journal you have needs to be literature related or it will not be accepted.  If it's just a general community spirit journal, it will be declined.  Which is why I suggested submitting it to CRCommunityProjects if it's not literature related.

Make sense?

Do literature tutorials/guides fall under accepted or not accepted? :confused: Do you prefer to limit those to Project Educate weeks?

We don't accept tutorials and guides to our News Article folder.  We're looking for journalism articles such as contests, new group announcements, features and things of that sort.

We do, however have our favourites folders open for submissions.  There is a guide/tutorials folder there, but you're not allowed to self suggest there.

You're welcome.  Thanks for asking.  It's honestly something I didn't think to include in the article.

Me too!  If the journal submission thing worked the way it should this wouldn't be necessary.  But we can't fix that.

I know I was kinda blunt there, but I feel the bluntness was necessary.  Being vague allows people to think they can cheat the system.
