What We Do

:bulletblue: APN Photography Features: Each Wednesday, we will post an APN feature showcasing some of the amazing artwork that was recently submitted to the APN gallery. The name of the feature is "APN Adventures".

:bulletblue: Interviews: This interview series will post once or twice per month. We will be asking questions of some of DA's talented nature photographers to get their thoughts and opinions on what is it to be an APN photographer and how the subject became their photography passion.

:bulletblue: Contests: The group will be holding regular contests every month. The themes will vary and the prizes will be fantastic! The contest journal will go live the first Sunday of the month that is runs. Entries will generally be open for three weeks, giving you plenty of time to come up with an idea and execute it for a chance at victory!

:bulletblue: APN News: One of our main goals is to bring DeviantArt's APN news to the forefront along with news we find off DA. We'll create a profile widget with links to helpful tutorials, interesting articles, and handy tips to help you improve and stay engaged with this dynamic category. Have news you would like to contribute? Send us the link via note.

:bulletblue: And More! We're always thinking of new ways to unite the APN community so stay tuned for future ideas from the team. And of course, if you have an idea you'd like to see us implement, send the group a note so we can take a look!

APN Feature: Waterscapes

”Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.”           (Indra Devi)

Secret Falls 3 by slayer-of-moments      Flooded Path by kickingmonster




“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”(Margret Antwood)

Submission Guidelines

:bulletgreen: Deviants will be able to submit up to 3 pieces each week. Deviations will require 3 Yes votes to be accepted.

:bulletgreen: You may only submit photography that has been submitted to one of the APN photography categories. Deviations submitted to any other category except those listed below will be voted "No" by our gallery moderators:

Aquatic Life
Domesticated Animals
Flowers, Trees, & Plants
Reptiles & Amphibians
Weather and Sky
Wild Animals

:bulletgreen: Featured Folder: You may submit here but please be aware that we only accept the best quality work into this folder!

:bulletgreen: We have a corresponding gallery folder for each APN subcategory. Please submit your pieces to the same category you submitted to on DA! For example, a photograph submitted to the Waterscapes category should be submitted to our Waterscapes folder. We may vote "No" on your submission if it is not sorted correctly.

:bulletgreen: Quality standards: We are not going to be elitist about quality! Again, we understand the nature of the APN gallery and that it is a category with a frequently-wide range of skill levels. That being said, we may reject photographs that we feel have excessive issues such as heavy blurring or over emphasis on man-made objects in the photograph (outside of the Domesticated Animals category).

If your photo is rejected, you're welcome to ask us for a brief reason in the submission comments. :)



Coming Soon!
