Young Photo Club Rules

Welcome! Please refer to our rules before you submit:

You must be 25 years old or younger to submit to the group. If you're older you may simply watch the group and enjoy everyone else's submissions!

Photographs only! (No photo-manipulations, ect.!)

No nudes! Since this is a Young Photo Club, I don't believe we should accept nude.

You may submit 1 deviations per day. If you submit more than 1 your submissions will be rejected automatically.

Photos with DeviantArt watermarks, or large overwhelming watermarks will most likely be declined. Please refer to this journal for more info and some tutorials: click here

While we welcome and encourage beginners to join, we search for quality and show of skill or promise, if your work is declined don't be discouraged. We will decline cellphone photos, quick snapshots, low quality selfies, etc etc.

Please only submit photographs in which you are model or photographer.

You may NOT re-submit a photo that has already been declined!

You must submit to the proper folder otherwise we will decline your submission, if you don't know where to submit simply send your photo to "Miscellaneous".

Try to keep your photographs original!


If you have questions about our rules, please ask us! Otherwise don't get upset when you don't follow them and there are issues with your submissions.

Thank you!

Our Feedback Rule

If you would like to know why your photo was declined, leave a comment in the comment area of your submission, immediately after you submit, letting us know that if your submission is declined you would like feedback from us.

Does this rule confuse you? It simply means that :

1. You submit your Deviation to the group.
2. You go to the "comment section" of your submission to the group (which can be found in the Correspondance part of your message center).
3. You comment saying something like "If this is declined, I would like feedback."
4. If your deviation is declined, you will get feedback.

For a step-by-step tutorial in case you're still confused, click here.

If you do not follow this rule, we can not give you feedback if your submission is declined, so PLEASE don't forget this.

:police: Do NOT ask us by note or comment on the front page for reasons of decline, or complain about having your work declined to us. We are a group with a huge amount of members, photos are bound to be declined.

Group Projects! a.k.a the fun stuff

Critique Me

Submit your photography to our "Critique Me" folder for our feedback and advice!
When submitting a photo to the Critique Me folder, you will go through the same process as your photo would in any other folder. We will hold the same standards in how we vote. However, you will receive tips, advice, opinion, and overall critique/feedback from us whether we accept your photo or not! It's a win win situation!

Also, your photo will be moved into its proper gallery folder if it is accepted into the group, so that it will not be alienated from the rest of the photography!

Critique 4 Critique

Give and receive comments/critiques between members, and be featured monthly!

Every month you from the 1st to the 15th you can send us a note with photos you'd like to receive critiques on. From the 15th to the 30th we will post a journal with all the photos that were sent to us, and all members will be able to critique them, and send us the links of the photos they've critiqued so we can feature them. See our featured journal on the front page for more details

Unknown Artists Project

A weekly feature of unknown artists chosen by the admins of the group!

zuziensk, anxiri, sandrawiklander, Mark-Heather, TWBK, laurapearl, Tomazklemensak, deadlychris, Nazrin-Polad, mpmgosia, 13noise, foxfyre2
