Lectori salutem! 

We are a bit behind with the features and news and everything that barely reminescent to a journal, and now I brought you two, from fellow deviants.

The first is a proposal against art theft (you either encountered with this phenomenon, or you will encounter later), by :icontupilak: tupilak Please read it carefully and pay a bit of time to think it over. If you agree, I think the best way is to share it over and over again, to ensure its presence in the DA communities.

Here we go:
Art Theft - DA Proposal       Reducing Art Theft - A Practical, Collaborative Proposal
For a site that has copyright embodied and fused to its very core, I would like to see more attention to art security and practical assistance to those who have suffered from art theft. The problem, although not exclusive to DA is real and will not go away without effort. So here are some semi-coherent thoughts directed to DA and its users about some practical solutions. Consider it an open invitation for discussion. If we cannot prevent those who infringe on copyright perhaps it is time to reward those that do not . . .
Without the benefit of a survey to determine the extent of art theft and copyright infringement among the DA membership, it would seem reasonable to suggest that many who have suffered art theft or copyright infringement do not take much further action. This may be caused by lack of knowledge, lack of collaborative tools or support, or personal reasons such a

The other is a challenge shared with us by :icongwangelinhael: Gwangelinhael to shoot your image and send exactly at 1700 (5pm) at your local time on 12th April—but find the details here:
Be there, or be square! ;)

DeviantART goes through some major fixes, and many things are changed nowadays, not always to the expected direction. Are these changes good or bad, only time will tell it. But these changes have a side effect that affects our galleries: we cannot rearrange (now) our folder structures. This is why we kept a single folder for the whole year, against our previous practices. Sorry for the inconvenience, and if you know any workaround, feel free to send us a note!

Meanwhile we have some beautiful images in the last months, and I would like to present you some of them. These are the top of the treasure heap, and you're welcome to browse through the others, because many gems were left hidden down there.

Finally, here are some works of our admins for you:

Blue Hour Budapest series - Inviting Budapest by HoremWeb  Waiting for Mom by AlejandroCastillo

Thank you for all submissions, and especially the featured artists—and even more thankyous for those artists whom I wanted to feature but left no room for their works this time. Their works are often even better than the presented images, but I wanted a kind of concept here. So, please visit our gallery!

Please don't forget that we are photography only group, we won't accept most of the manips, extended typography, disturbing watermarks, nudity and cruel images, etc. There is one more very important rule: submit your best! We reserve the right to ask for a better image of the series, or reject an otherwise good image if that is below your personal level. Feel free to ask for critiques and opinions!

Have nice lights,

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 TGTD - 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.

Dear Friends, both Members and Visitors,

DA framework suffered serious "developments" that actually fail the admin works in several deeds. We cannot invite but a limited number of deviations, for instance, and I just faced the trouble that we cannot arrange the folder sequence in our gallery. That's why we have a single folder for 2017 now, instead of monthly folders of the last seven years. It may be better or may be worse, we'll see. I hope we'll see it together :) Still keep on sumbitting your best and amaze us visitors, admins, fellow photographers and fellow photo-lovers!
