Bronies Gallery Submission Rules

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 1:41 PM
Whether a piece gets accepted based on the criteria below is up to discretion of whichever three voting admins get to the piece first in our inbox. If your piece doesn't get accepted, the last voter may or may not leave an explanation in the correspondence item comments. (If you didn't get an explanation and you would like one, please leave a comment IN THAT AREA or link to the piece in question if you've deleted your correspondence.) If you clearly broke a rule, or if there is uncertainty on your part, please do not argue with the admins. If you truly think your work was judged unfairly, shoot us a note.


Relevance

We welcome submissions of art and literature related to My Little Pony.
However, we cannot accept:
  • Journal entries.
  • Art focusing on humanized original characters (OCs), including Equestria-Girls style OCs.
  • Art focusing on creatures of any non-canon species.
    • This does not apply to crossovers, which can be of any species as long as the subject is a canon MLP character.
    • Dragon, gryphon, donkey, etc, OCs are acceptable as long as they are identifiably MLP-style.
    • Hybrids, such as ponies with non-canon tail or wing designs, are judged on a sliding scale at admin discretion.
    • Non-canon hooved creatures (deer, antelopes, etc) may be accepted at admin discretion based on closeness to MLP-style.
  • Art in the style of a previous generation of MLP is very uncommon, and may be judged on a case-by-case basis.


Suitability

To keep our galleries accessible to all ages, please keep all submitted art and literature G-rated.
We will reject all mature content, including:
  • "Mature" tag.
  • Blood or gore.
  • Lewdness and anything remotely sexual (even if censored).
  • Excessive violence.
  • Excessively disturbing or grimdark imagery.
  • Illegal drug use (may also include abuse of alcohol and smoking).
  • Foul language.


Effort

In addition to featuring our members' work, we try to deliver great art to our watchers' inboxes. We won't judge your artistic skills, but we try to keep low-effort works out of the gallery, as well as art that relies primarily on work done by others.
Please avoid submitting:
  • Unfinished or hastily-done works. This includes all stages of WIPs.
  • Artwork not created by you, or featuring uncredited work by other artists.
    • This includes any commission by another artist which you have permission to post, but of which there is another copy on dA by the original artist.
    • If you are aware of any instances of art theft that make it into our gallery, please let us know via group note.
  • Artwork created from bases:
    • Images from PonyCreator / 3D PonyCreator / any other generator.
    • Anything from GMod or SFM that uses ANY model or body originally created by someone else. We do accept fully original 3D art done in other programs.
    • Non-vector traced screenshots. (Excludes actual original bases themselves, which we do accept.)
    • Adopt sheets where a single pose is used multiple times, even if it is your own base.
    • Common gifs, such as trot sprites.
    • Cards.
  • Memes, motivational/demotivational posters, image macros.
  • Photomanipulations and PIRLs
  • Photos of store-bought merchandise.
  • Roleplay transcripts.
  • Minecraft pixel art.
  • Direct screenshots of the show or any program / game.
  • Low-effort cosplay.


Presentation

In order to keep our watchers' inboxes looking great, we ask that your artwork is properly presented.
Please avoid common pitfalls, such as:
  • Drawings on lined paper, unless the lines cannot be seen through the art.
  • Dark, blurry, and grainy photos.
  • Images that are heavily-compressed, excessively-watermarked, or suffer from extreme technique errors.
  • Images that are too small to see or read clearly, for which big previews and originals have been disabled.
  • Images which do not load in standard browsers.



Submission Limit to the sorting folder:

Members: 1 per week. It's the same as 4 per month but you don't have to wait a whole month if something goes wrong. We don't want to impose strict quality controls here but we do want to encourage you to submit only your best work, rather than submitting everything.

Primary Contributor status may be offered by admins to the most talented artists in the fandom. This confers a submission limit of 8 per month, and automatic acceptance.

BronyCAN Drawing Contest Hosted by #MLPFriendship!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 10, 2014, 12:20 AM


This is a drawing contest held by our sister group, :iconmlpfriendshipismagic:. Head on over there to check it out!

Hello everypony.

I'm afraid I have some serious news, direct from our friend Firestorm-CAN. It isn't good. As some of you may know, BronyCAN has been receiving mysterious threats about a potential changeling invasion. Well, it turns out those threats were true! (read the comic here!)

BronyCAN, and all of British Columbia are being attacked by relentless swarms of changelings! The guards are being rallied, and defenses are being constructed as we speak!

...There are rumors of this invasion force being a nastier brood of changelings from the north, led by the nefarious Queen Volucris.

Firestorm has asked for all the support we can give them in their time of need, and it is up to us to ensure that the changelings don't win!

The best way to do that is to raise awareness of what may come to pass if they're not stopped!

Your contest challenge is to draw a picture of a Canadian landmark being attacked by changelings!

Some additional rules and notes!:

:bulletgreen: Queen Chrysalis is not involved in this attack! If you choose to display a changeling queen in your image, you must use Queen Volucris (follow the link to see a picture of her)! Whether in the background or foreground it's up to you!

:bulletred: There are no canon ponies allowed in this drawing! However, pony OCs are more than welcome and are encouraged!

:bulletorange: Please remember to follow all group rules! This means, no excessive violence and blood, no gore, nothing that wouldn't be in a Disney movie!

Prizes


Because this contest is being sponsored in part by BronyCAN, we are able to offer a much larger prize support! As a result, we hope this becomes our most successful contest ever!

We are offering prizes to the TOP NINE CONTESTANTS! These fall into three distinct groups.

Runner Up Rank:

The three Runner-Up Rankers will receive honorable mentions on BronyCAN's Tumblr page, as well as here on our MLPFriendshipIsMagic page. All other ranks will receive these honors as well.

Super Rank!:


The three artists who get to the Super Rank will receive a FREE T-shirt from BronyCAN's online store! Check out the link to see what they have!

Master Rank!:


The TOP THREE WINNERS will each receive a super secret, custom-designed T-shirt, ABSOLUTELY FREE! Created by the excellent art team of BronyCAN, these T-shirts will be your sign of artistic talent and skill!

There is another prize for the first place winner! In addition to a custom T-shirt design, the first place winner will go home with THEIR CHOICE OF A MANE SIX PLUSHIE, generously provided by the one and only :iconadamlhumphreys: adamlhumphreys!



So if you think you've got what it takes, you have Until May 1st to enter your drawing. Break out those tablets and pencils, and get drawing!

Submit your entries HERE, to THIS FOLDER!

CEO and Leader of #MLPFriendshipIsMagic
