- The only ones we accept are announcements about contests, commissions, art trades and groups. Nothing else.

• ACTA/PIPA/SOPA/CISPA or Kony 2012 art
- We support all of these causes, but we refuse such submissions because most of the times, the submissions are one and the same "sheet", that are posted over and over again by those that wants to spread the message, and they didn't create the submitted piece themselves.
Keep it original!

We're also NOT accepting artworks that you didn't create yourself.

We apologize for any inconvenience that any of this may cause you.
