RULES OF CONDUCT:
Harassment of any kind for any reason between members will not be tolerated. This includes flaming of their works, harassment through comments or notes, or any other harassment. You get one warning and then you're out (as well as any submissions you have made). Critiques are fine if the artist requests them but please follow the golden rule: Don't be a dick.
If you have a complaint against another member, note the club with the subject title 'Complaint'
Please read and follow the submission guidelines below. Any submissions made that fall outside the rules will be removed without warning. If you have any questions about them, feel free to ask! I know they might sound a little bit complicated at first
If you feel there is not yet a submissions folder where your work would fit in, feel free to request one with a note titled 'Gallery Suggestion'!
Featured deviations are chosen by the club's headmod and are deviations felt to be most representative of the con's scene. Aside from official con art, I will mostly pick pictures that represent a large demographic of con-goers (such as large photoshoots) and represent Boston, as well, as a city.
Be sure to submit photos to the correct folder! I've disabled additions to Featured, those will continue to be chosen by moderators. If your photos are of cosplayers please submit them to the cosplay folder, and if they are of the con scene, attendees not in cosplay (this includes lolitas, other J-fashions etc as well as plainclothes), please submit them to the con photos folder.
RULES FOR SUBMISSIONS:
Non-photographic art submissions must have a direct relation to Anime Boston. No, having sold a print of the art at the Artist Alley does not count.
For example, you may submit art of the con's mascots, or portraits of cosplayers done at the con, or 'special edition' illustrations done specifically for AB with a Boston or AB-related theme in mind, but you may not submit any old landscape painting of Boston, nor may you submit an illustration of Naruto that you sold at Artist Alley. Ask if you aren't sure if a submission is ok!
Cosplayers may submit up to 5 photos of any of their own costumes.
Photographers, you may submit up to 3 photos of any one photoshoot and up to 5 photoshoots. If the cosplayer in your photos already has 5 photos here, please consider submitting a different cosplayer to be featured.
You may submit any number of hall snapshots (including cosplayers) but please try not to submit them all at once! 5-8 within a few months or 5-8 of your best photos per year is best, to prevent flooding of the galleries.
That means that as a cosplayer, you may have 5 photos of yourself (for example consisting of 3 photos of costume A, 1 photo of costume B, and 1 photo of costume C) in the gallery. As a photographer, it means you may have up to 3 photos from any one shoot/of any one cosplayer or group of cosplayers, and up to 5 different photoshoots total (that is, a max of 15 photoshoot photos), however photographers may have any number of con hall/masquerade snapshots as long as they do not 'flood' the gallery.
There will be NO content above PG-13 (same as Masquerade). Anime Boston is a family-friendly convention and this club will reflect that.
This goes for couples or pairings of any kind. This includes but is not limited to suggestive touching or posing. Kissing and hand-holding is okay as long as it is tasteful. As for costume content, any costume that is allowed in Anime Boston's halls is allowed here.
