If you have a group and want it to affiliate with ours, please send us a reason why you want to affiliate with us along with your affiliation request.
Be respectful to one another. We do not condone hate, prejudice or disrespect in any form. This includes expressions of hate in art.
The focus of all artwork submitted to this group must remain within the scope of real-world Paganism. We will not accept work that does not contain elements of Paganism, or if the focus of which is overshadowed by irrelevant subjects.
PaganArts is not a group for fantasy artwork. The magick we weave is real.
Art with mature content must have Mature Content tags. We won't accept it without them.
Submit artwork to their proper folders. Misplaced submissions will be rejected! Review all your options before you make a decision! See our folder directory below.
Please do not submit artwork to our Favorites section. If you submit artwork to our group's Favorites section, it will be rejected and replaced with a counter-request for submission to our main gallery.
There is a two submission per day limit for every folder.
Direct submissions to the Featured folder are not allowed (nor are they possible). (See Weekly Top Four Nomination Information for clarification.)
Below is a complete directory of all our folders in this gallery. Here at PaganArts, we encourage our members to submit their art to folders based on subject matter over the type of medium used in its creation. For example, if you have an acrylic painting of Thor, we encourage you to submit it to Gods instead of Traditional Media. With this folder directory, there's no reason to misplace a submission.

WEEKLY TOP FOUR NOMINATION INFORMATION
As stated above, direct submissions to the Featured folder are not possible, but you can nominate artwork to be featured. Here are some rules and guidelines to consider.
Every Monday, four submissions from different folders in our gallery will be chosen from among nominees to be featured on our front page for one week.
Be sure to check the 16 most recent submissions from the Featured folder before making any nominations.
No artist can have their work featured on the front page more than once in four weeks.
You may nominate your own artwork, but we encourage you to be generous and nominate the works of others.
You may nominate as much artwork as you wish, but please don't nominate any given piece more than once per week. Spamming our inbox will not help your nominee.
To nominate artwork, simply send a note to the group with a link to your nominations.
Any artwork nominated must already be in our group's gallery.
