About ArtistsInNature

Our Mission Statement

This group is for people who love being outside and wish to instill love, admiration and respect for the natural world through their art with the hopes of inspiring the desire to conserve and develop sustainably, so that future generations can enjoy the same wild places we know and love.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, These Are The Rules

As much as I don’t like coming up with a list of ‘dos’ and ‘do nots’, they are sometimes a necessity. The following has been prepared for your reading pleasure, make sure you review and remember them. Suggestions are welcome!

:bulletblue: When you join our group, please also watch us! The more you give the more you get.

:bulletblue: All work submitted must be nature-related.

:bulletblue: Any medium is accepted – please read the gallery folder descriptions listed below and submit to the correct folder.

:bulletblue: No mature content.

:bulletblue: Please submit only your best works, as what you display here is meant to draw people to your own gallery. Remember, quality over quantity!

:bulletblue: Submission limit is one (1) per week. This is to encourage people to chose quality works to display, instead of submitting everything under the sun. (Submission limit may go up again when I determine whether I can keep on top of it or not with limited summer internet.)

:bulletblue: When suggesting favourites, any self promotions will be declined.

:bulletblue: Be honest. If the subject in your photograph was in a zoo or on a farm, don’t try to pass it off in the wildlife category, or put photo manipulations in photography.


Gallery Folder Definitions

The titles may be obvious, but please read through the following definitions so that you are sure your submissions are going in the correct place. Incorrect submissions, or those that are suspicious of being misrepresented (photo manipulations in photography, exotic animals in wildlife,) will be questioned or declined.

Featured
The winners' circle! This is the folder where winners of club contests will go. Members are unable to submit here.

Wild Animals
This gallery is for photographs of all animals and insects, whether in the forest or city, that are considered wild or not captive. Feral dogs and cats go in domestic and zoo, as do lions in captivity.

Domestic and Zoo
This gallery is for photographs of all animals that we may consider companion animals, livestock or are kept in a zoo or game park.

‘Scapes and Flora
All land/water/skyscape photographs go here, including the night sky. Photos of trees, leaves and flowers also go here. If there is a bug on the flower, it goes in Wild Animals.

People and Portraits
All photographs of people in nature can be submitted here.

Traditional
All traditional media goes here including drawings, paintings, sculptures and crafts.

Digital
All digital paintings and drawings go here, as well as emotes and icons. Photo manipulations go in their own folder.

Photo Manipulations
When post processing goes beyond what can sometimes be described as ‘darkroom editing’, and a major change in colour or composition has been made to the photo.

Literature
All written works can be submitted here, including poetry, short stories and non fictional accounts.

Contests
Entries for current contests can be submitted here.

Thank you!

I am now living in Waterloo but don't have internet, and am not sure when I will be able to be around. As such, the club will go into an indefinite hiatus. I will let everyone know if and when the club will restart.

Happy winter(or summer)!!!

Hi there.:) I'm typing this because there's some Kickstarter Projects I was wondering if you would be interested in funding.

One project is a book called "Sally The Seagull", which is a children's book about a seagull who sorts garbage. It needs $2,500.00 in order to be funded, and the deadline is May 22nd at 8:32 PM EDT. Unfortunately, so far, it has no funding and no backers.

The other project is for an environmentally friendly food delivery truck, which will, of course, bring food to the masses without any negative reprucussions on the environment. It needs $25,000.00 by May 10th at 1:33pm EDT in order to be funded. As of this posting, it only has $15.00 and two backers.

I don't like that these two projects are so underfunded, and would like to help them along. So, I decided to turn to people who I think would be most willing to fund it. So, I chose to see if any of the environmentalist groups here on DA would be willing to help in funding them. If you would like to see the projects, here are some links to their Kickstarter pages.

Let me know what you think of these projects, and if you think they're worthy of being funded.
