Submission Rules - Please Read Before Submitting!!!

Greetings true believers :wave: !

Every day, many members submit their entries to the wrong folder, leading to a rejection, and it is a problem which is getting worse. Please read the below rules so you don't make the same mistake.

Please also not that we only accept 3 submissions a month from each member.

This is really sad considering the work and love which has gone into each and every work submitted here and so I've knock together a quick guide so that you can avoid making the same mistakes!

The first rule, which applies to all folders, is that we do not accept tracings or straight copies of another's work. Each submission must at least have some content which has sprung from your own creativity or else it is liable to be either declined straight off or removed at a later date.

The second rule is that at least one Marvel character must feature in any given submission - it is a Marvel fans group after all!

The third rule is that you MUST submit a reasonable quality digital image if your fanart is traditional or cosplay. This can be either scanned or photographed. For instance, low-resolution images of your fanarts in bad lighting will lead to an automatic rejection.

The fourth rule is that, in order to be a group in which all members will feel comfortable to browse the galleries and be associated with, we do not accept submission which:

1. Depict situations of non-consent.
2. Feature slurs or similar demeaning and/or hateful language.
3. Features racist, sexist or homophobic content.
4. NSFW work.

Moving on, here is a list of our folders and the rules pertaining to each one, so that you may select the correct one to submit your work to.

Featured: Featured is a mods choice folder and you cannot submit to it directly.

Villains: ALL fanarts of villains must be submitted here. That even includes those who are normally attached to a particular hero - i.e. the Winter Soldier to Captain America. Submitting a picture of Winter Soldier to Captain America will lead to a rejection and it must be resubmitted to Villains. As a caveat, this rule is more flexible if the particular villain also fits into an anti-hero persona, such a Kid Loki or Black Cat. In this instance, General Marvel Heroes is an equally valid folder to submit to. Also, if your villain is fighting a hero, the appropriate folder for your submission is the one to which the HERO belongs, not the villain.

Fanfiction: ALL fanfiction must be submitted here. A submission of written-word fanart to any other folder will be rejected. This rule, of course, does not apply to fan-made comics.

Cross Over: ALL submissions featuring characters not owned by Marvel Comics must be submitted to this folder. That includes submissions featuring characters from other comics companies, such a DC's Batman, or indeed your own OC. Again, it must be noted that, unless your submission contains at least ONE Marvel character, it will be rejected.

Avengers, for work with 2 or more Avengers: This folder is emphatically NOT simply for characters who have been or are Avengers. This folder is for fanarts featuring AT LEAST TWO past or present Avengers, such as a fanart depicting Captain America and Iron Man. Please note that a villain or associated character will NOT make up the numbers, for instance Captain America fighting Baron Zemo or Iron-Man talking to Pepper Pots.

Captain America, Daredevil, Deadpool, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Gallery, Hulk, Iron-Man, Punisher, Spider-Man, Thor, Wolverine and X-Men: These folders are for full-colour fanarts of the characters in the folder title i.e. Punisher fanarts belong in the Punisher folder. These folders can also receive submissions of non-villainous characters attached to the folder-title's hero. For instance, fanarts of Mary Jane Watson can be submitted to Spider-Man.

Three extra points must be made about the X-Men folder.

First, Wolverine and Deadpool, though mutants, have their own folders and, unless the fanart features these characters with another appropriate mutant, X-Men is not the correct folder for it.

Second, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, though mutants, only briefly served in the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants before becoming full-time Avengers. Therefore, a submission of fanarts depicting either of these two will be declined and they belong in either Avengers or General Marvel Heroes depending upon the submission.

Third, purely villainous mutants, such as Sabretooth, belong in Villains and a submission to X-Men will meet with a rejection.

General Marvel Heroes: This a folder for all full-colour depictions of single heroes or groups which do not fit into any other folder. For instance, a fanart of Luke Cage or Captain Marvel would belong here, as they have nowhere else to go. If unsure about your submission, this is best place to submit to.

Non-main canon Marvel, for Star Wars etc: This folder is for fanarts of characters who, although published under the Marvel name, will never feature in the main Marvel Universe. For instance, although Star Wars is now published by Marvel, Darth Vader will never fight Rocket Racoon. Fanarts of this type of character belong here.

I hope this clears things up but, if anybody has any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The mods here are all really friendly and more than happy to help :D !

Excelsior!

Hi there :wave: !

Just a quick note to say please make sure that the character in any work you are about to submit doesn't have a folder of their own before submitting to General Marvel Heroes. We are going to be far stricter with this in the future as otherwise there is really no point having the separate folders and so submissions of characters who have their own folders but are submitted to General Marvel Heroes will be declined.

Thank you very much :la: !

Excelsior,

The Strategos.
