SUBMISSION RULES and GUIDE
Join requests are auto-approved, but we are a group aimed at very good intermediate and advanced artists. To avoid disappointment, it might help you to look at our gallery first and see whether your artworks fall within our standard.
Considering the huge amount of members, we do not give reason when we decline artworks, but you can always request it.
Should your image be declined please don’t be offended. You can enquire why your image got rejected via the correspondence message (How to fav.me/d3gszgt) .
Wrong folder submissions are always declined, so please make sure you submit to the correct folder (it should correspend to your artwork's dA folder).
Please treat all our staff with respect - you may not agree with the reasons why we declined your image but that is not an excuse for being rude and agressive. They are here to help you and critically look at your work.
Please do not use EA group profile page to discuss moderators/contributors decisions, personal messages, or advertising.

We don't accept manga/anime drawings, unless they're very well done.

Photographs We check composition, colour, luminosity and originality. Photographs should be interesting and look professional.
Traditional Art Same as digital art, completed with background. Make sure that the scan or photo is of the highest quality possible.

Q: HOW TO SUBMIT MY WORK ?
The work allowed into the group has to be yours. You are not allowed to submit other people's work here.
To submit an artwork, push the button "Contribute Art" on the group's main page. Then, when you enter the gallery link, a dialogue box will appear. Select the appropriate gallery from the top menu. This is because you have to submit art in appropriate folder according to art type.

Q: WHY THE NAME 'ELITE ARTISTS'?
