Dear You,

First of all: we wish you a very fruitful, prosperous, lucky and Happy New Year for 2017. 

Time is a strange thing. As I write these lines, here, somewhere east from Greenwhich it is already January 1st, 2017, while at least two of our admin friends are still on December 31st, 2016... Funny, isn't it? Our group is really global :)

An affiliate

I would like you to know that two of our admins, Sabbelbina and HoremWeb run together another photography group that focuses (sorry for the pun!) to nature, especially the untouched and unspoilt nature. The group is EnvironmentPhotos and it is still in its starting phase. You may forgive me if I want to tease you to see, watch, or even join and submit there, too. For this reason I brought you some featured images from there, from our December harvest :)

Features of 2016 December

December of 2016 brought some really great works, and we enjoyed the situation when we had to press the 'Accept' button so many times :) This is great to receive beautiful submissions, and this is a great fuel for our group! Unfortunately we cannot feature all the great works (as usual), so here is just a little selection. It is really worth to check out our folders in our gallery for more beautiful and inspiring images. There are hidden treasures, sometimes even more beautiful ones than the featured works. Take a tour for proof!

Photographyworld Reorganisation

Hello dear members of Photographyworld

After some submission-troubles last year, we found some new admins and our team changed a bit. Some of the old admins are still part of the group, but not active anymore. The newer ones came with new ideas and so we also reorganisated some parts of the group:

♣ We have a new folder called TGTG - Too Good Too Decline.
♣ We started featuring you again. We will do a monthly feature with some of the newly submitted photos.

Still we have some troubles with submissions waiting sometimes.
These are always times when we are only two actively working admins with the others beeing ill or having to much offline-work. We hope you understand, that the submission may take some time due to this. We give our best to not let your submissions expire again.

We also have found some System-Errors. Most have only effects on us admins and we can deal with them, but unfortunately some also created problems for you.
Take a look here for more information.

We will inform you about everything new in our journal.

Thank you for being part of our group.

Hello dear members of Photographyworld

although this is a group with a large amount of members, there's just a tiny team of admins and no founder active for a long time.

THE REQUIRED VOTES HAVE CHANGED INTO 2 instead of the 3 we had before. The waiting time for you should not be too long but we strive to decide on your submission within 4 days. Please have some patience :)

Please be aware to submit only your best and also do not make the mistake to submit into the wrong folder ;) We do notify you most of the times when you have submitted into the wrong folder but in order to create a better group we do not have the time for this actually.

New Featured Artist ideas and journal features are being worked on.

Thanks for your patience and we hope to see the best of your work :D

Thanks for your understanding!

dALinkSystem is a Group dedicated towards increasing artists exposure by helping others and themselves through a simple and effective "Linking" system. The idea:

"Link another artists submission in your artist's comment box. It helps everyone's exposure and finds undiscovered art."


♣ The Link System was originated by TheFulkrum in May of 2009. What began with a few "Linkers" has grown into a large "Linkers Community" of caring deviants who utilize The Link System to help increase their exposure while helping others.

Sorry dear friends, we are a bit out of the rhythm now. All we have partly unexpected and time  consuming deeds nowadays in that thing we could call outer world and while we try to keep the submissions managed, we cannot keep the pace with this flow of messages here. 

Please forgive us the lags, expect longer times for the submissions and don't be surprised if a submission expires—that usually means a "no" with lots of hesitation. If you feel so you can always note us via the submission page comments, that is a bit more in the eyesight of us; or you can re-submit your work if you feel it is just simply overlooked. In that case, please state the fact of expiration in the submission comment... 

Also please note that we still won't accept nudity, even implied; firearms, violence, hate works, horror & macabre & gore, and usually the "not children-safe things". Avoid intrusive watermarks (many fine submissions are declined because the watermark disturbs the image), frames and typography on images... see our rules ;)

Have nice lights!
