FAQ (update)

Why am I blocked?
If you have been blocked then you have most likely broken our submission guidelines. For more info to appeal send a PM to the group or to :iconporomaa:

The groups guidelines as far as submissions are concerned are as follows:

-No pornographic artwork
-1 submission per week
-Do not resubmit an image if declined (unless advised otherwise by a staff member)
-When we're looking through submissions, we're looking for well composed images with the urban story in focus, we may decline if we find the artwork not meeting these standards
-Images should be of reasonable quality and resolution
-Make sure you submit to the correct galleries (see below)
-Photographs must be city-related
-We will generally reject any images which we deem to be 'over-processed', remember that the story should be in focus not the thrill of after effect. And we do not accept snapshots of any kind.
- In general, we do not accept watermarks, except those that are positioned in such a way that they do not interfere too much with the experience of the image.

If your artwork gets declined then feel free to ask why and we will usually gladly give you an explanation. However, we do reserve the right to decline an image without giving a reason.

Which gallery do I submit to?

If in doubt, look at the other works submitted into a gallery. If you can find a gallery with lots of similar stuff then give that a shot.

Cityscapes - Urban landscapes, a view of a large part or a whole city.

Street - Candid photographs of people on the street (not people living on the street!), up close and personal. Generally these photographs will be of a specific person. No homeless people! (See photojournalism!)

City Life - Similar to street photography but takes into account the environment and all of the people in that space, not just one.

Photojournalism - Anything which you might find in a newspaper or on the TV. Examples include homeless people, riots, event photography and so on. Must be in an URBAN ENVIRONMENT!

People - People in urban areas - the person should be the main focus. These images are not necessarily candid and can sometimes be out of context.

Long Exposure - Where a long exposure (shutter speed) has been used, often capturing streaks of light, flares and ghostly figures.

Architecture - Structures, indoor and outdoor. The building or part of it is the main focus.

Black and White - City/Urban/Street photography in black and white. Sometimes a black and white photo may want to be put in a different gallery if it is definitive of that genre. If so, feel free to submit it outside of this folder.

Transport - Vehicles in urban areas, the vehicle being the sole focus

Graphic Mode - Images focused on the graphic aspect of imagery and of urbanity; images where the aesthetics is used as the main tool for telling the urban story.

Urban Conceptual - Images that focus on the surreal or otherwise have a conceptual approach to urbanity and urban life.

Happy submitting!
