Official UAC Submission Guidelines


    Think before you submit. Try to only submit the deviations that you think are your strongest works.

    :bulletblue: Every member is allowed to submit two deviations a month. This limit applies even if both the deviations submitted are declined. Also, the deviations you submit must be at least two days old in your gallery.

    :bulletorange: Please submit to the correct folders. If you submit to the wrong folder your submission will be declined. For all information on how to submit artwork to a group, please visit one of these tutorials:… or… .

    NOTE: Artwork that is Black and White goes in to the Black & White folder only! No matter if it's Digital or Traditional! This does not apply to photography.

    :bulletblue: Submissions will be quality checked to ensure artwork that best represents the artist is submitted to the correct folders.

      What we mean by quality: :bulletorange: The artwork is polished and seems finished. No sketches or Works In Progress [WIPs]. :bulletorange: Sharp, thought out photographs. No photographs with low resolution, or images that are grainy, dark, or generally unclear will be accepted. :bulletorange: We will not reject work based on our own personal preference. We reject/accept work on a technical basis, as we realize that artwork is subjective and everyone's skill level is different.

    :bulletblue: To make sure we are showing unknown artists' works, deviations will only be approved if the artwork has less than an average of 50 views per day, and a maximum of 5000 views all together.

    :bulletorange: We do not accept artworks that have been awarded a Daily Deviation. For more information on Daily Deviations, see here:

    :bulletblue: Photomanipulations, or any image that uses stock, must have the stock used linked in their comments. This includes both free and purchased images. Submissions that do not have properly linked stock will be declined. If you used your own stock, please state such in your artist's comments. Please be prepared to provide further proof it is your own stock if requested. UAC does not accept work created using images culled from Google Image searches, or through sites like Photobucket because the images seen there are often copyrighted and would therefore infringe DA's rules on art theft. If your stock comes from a magazine, please provide the name of the magazine, (and if possible) issue and year. This applies to any preview pictures to your literature as well.

    :bulletorange:Maximum views: All work must have received fewer than 50 views per day, on average, AND fewer than 5000 views total.

    Important Folder Information

      We will decline deviations that are submitted to an improper folder.

      1. We do not accept any memes. A submission may not contain more than one thumbnail or previews of all your works.
      2. The Photography folder is for photographs only. A photograph is defined as "an image of an object, person, scene, etc. recorded by a camera." Pictures of your artwork do not go here, but rather get placed in their proper folder based on medium.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the Photography folder include:

      3. The Comics folder is strictly for panel comics and images from your personal comic series. This is not the proper folder to submit regular fanart drawings to.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the Comics folder include:

      4. The Other Digital Art folder is for digital works you feel are not well represented in the Drawings and Paintings, Digital folder. Things like logos and designs and the like belong in this folder.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the Other Digital Art folder include:

      5. The Black and White folder is for lineart and black and white illustrations. It can be digital, traditional, or whatever you like, but it is not for black and white photography or the like. We will be accepting clean and sharp images; no pencil sketches or poorly scanned deviations.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the Black and White folder include:

      6. The 3D folder is only for 3D renders made using specific programs (such as 3D Max or AutoCAD). This folder is not for pictures of 3D objects, drawings of 3D objects, or 3D crafts; those submissions should go into their respective folders based on medium.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the 3D folder include:

      7. The Film folder is only for live action movies submitted to DA. This folder is not for gifs or animations; those submissions should go into the Animation folder. We do not accept deviations with links to films or animations elsewhere on the internet or gifs or animations that do not belong to the member attempting to submit the artwork to the group.
        Examples of acceptable entries in the Film folder include:

      8. To submit to the correct folder: Visit the group's main gallery page and click on the "+" button to the right of the folder name to submit to that folder. For more information on submitting to groups, please see one of these tutorials:

                .:~Affiliation Policy~:.

                As of 13th July, Unknown-Artists-Club has decided to have the following affiliation policy:

                  :bulletblack: ANY Super Group will be accepted as an affiliate. :bulletred: For non-Super Groups, you will need to be active with a minimum member count of 100.

                These affiliation rules are to prevent having dead groups as affiliates, so as to better facilitate affiliate browsing. If you have found that your group has been removed, it may have been due to inactivity.

                Thank you!
