What does it take to have your work featured by iPhotograph?

:camera::pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera::pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera::pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera::pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase


The iPhotograph group receives on average 100 submissions a day. This number is increased at weekends to about 200 a day. If each one of these were accepted then it would flood the inboxes of everyone who watches the group. On top of that the iPhotograph galleries to showcase some of the best talent that deviantART has to offer, providing entertainment and inspiration to photographers around the world. Therefore each submission is stringently reviewed.

Each submission posted to iPhotograph is reviewed and voted on by a team of photographers. It takes 5 votes before a decision is reached, each from a different reviewer. This is the process for all shots. If a group moderator wants to submit a shot in the gallery, it still needs to be voted on before it can be included. Nothing is guaranteed and only the best shots will be accepted. With the exception of no photo-manipulations, there are no hard and fast rules about what will or will not be accepted to the iPhotograph group. For example on a wildlife shot soft focus and over exposure may not be fitting, however on portraiture these may be desirable qualities. Each submission is assessed on its own merit.

If anyone wants to know why a shot was declined they only have to ask, and one (or more) of the iPhotograph team will write a critique. Depending on the shot its self, a useful critique can take anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes to write. Which would mean that if 100 submissions were posted and each given a 5 minute critique that would equate to 8.33 hours of critique, every day. Doubling that at the weekends is over 16 hours, just to write a critique on each shot. That of course doesn’t take the time to actually look at the photograph in the first place and asses it’s merits, that would be at least another 5 minutes per shot. So we now have over 16 hours per day on a weekday and 32 hours per day on a weekend. Which just isn’t practically possible. Remember that groups are run by people motivated enough by their respective hobbies to give up some free time and keep a group running. Groups are not paid employment and everyone has their own life outside of deviantART, with jobs and studies taking up large proportions of their time.

Why don’t iPhotograph write a one sentence review of each shot? Simple, that doesn’t help anyone. A critique will give you a lot to work on, it will highlight your weaknesses so that you know what to target in your future shots. A good critique will also show you strengths as well as your weaknesses. You can understand fully want you want to do again in your future work and what you want to change. It can sometimes be hard to have your work pulled apart, but in the end you will be better for it and have to look to the future and the shots you will be able to produce.

Not only does iPhotograph want to showcase the best and the brightest of the deviantART photographic community, but also the iPhotograph team want help people grow and develop their skills as a photographer. That is why every person who asks for a critique on a declined submission, or accepted submission for that matter, will receive one. After all, if someone is not going to ask for critique and ways to better their shot what is the point in taking the time to explain why their shot didn’t get accepted?

If someone just wants every submission they post to a group to be accepted then iPhotograph is certainly not for them. However if they want to belong a group which will deliver the finest quality photographs to their deviantWATCH list and will also try and help every member grow and reach their potential, then iPhotograph is certainly the group to join.
