MisCat Hero Contest!!
Gallery Descriptions Month - win PRIZES!!!!!Galleries month
This month at projecteducate a group of Community Volunteers have worked hard to create gallery description articles for almost every Gallery here on DeviantART. Throughout August we will be bringing you these articles covering the definitions of galleries from Photography to Photo-manipulation, Artisan Crafts to Digital Dolls. If you have any questions about where to submit your work here on DeviantART then this month will be your chance to ask. Just head over to projecteducate, send us a note or comment on one of the articles as and when they are posted.
A whole month of articles at projecteducate deserves a celebratory contest, so we're going to host one that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing! Since the aim of this month is to reduce mis-cats and help deviants re-classify their work correctly, we thought that a fitting them would be …
The "Miscat Superhero" Contest!
Read on for more information!
MisCats are the BANE of deviantART (outside of screenshots being posted as "art")! I've seen a staggering amount of miscats from all sorts of galleries, not just perusing deviations but when viewing submissions to the galleries in Groups.
To create awareness for MisCats and how to make sure deviations are in the correct galleries, projecteducate has many Community Volunteers writing blogs to explain their Galleries and how to correctly submit works into the correct SubCats.
APN: Categories and FeaturesGalleries month
Today we're taking a look at the Animals, Plants & Nature (APN) photography categories and what goes in there. It won't be as detailed as I've done some years ago. You can see the recap here. We'll look at the gallery descriptions today and some features!
The next categories are available when you submit to Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature;
Photographs of plants and animals living underwater.
Photographs where birds are the primary subject.
Photographs of animals that have been domesticated (tamed to live with humans), as either pets or livestock, and which depend on humans for survival.
Flowers, Trees & Plants
Photographs of plant life, such as trees, flowers, shrubs and herbs.
Photographs of fungi, such as yeast, molds, lichens, mushrooms and toadstools.
Written by Anoya referring to the APN Photography gallery, each SubCat is described and examples are provided for clarity.
Look for additional articles pertaining to Gallery information in the month of August!
Also, Community Week is coming up for projecteducate ~ how to get involved can be found in the listed article:
Community Week - Get InvolvedThe Community Week has been a way that allows Deviants to get involved within the community to educate other deviants with their knowledge and give out tips and tricks, and interview outstanding deviants.
Next Community Week
September 29th - October 5th
How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note projecteducate with your article idea! We can make sure to avoid double-posts in the Community Week and work with you on your idea when another deviant had the same idea. As soon as we are happy with the article idea, you will receive an invite to Contributors to have access to the journal skin, guidelines, and week schedule.
