Group members are entitled to enter 2 images per day, with a maximum of 20.
We will continue to try and keep the number of Group Gallery pages low, so as to only keep the highest quality images in the group. Therefore occasional pruning and removal of older work from the group will occur.
If your older work gets removed in this way, you are always very welcome to re-enter it to the group, and give it a second chance for exposure on the groups front pages.

  1. Take personal responsibility of the work you place here. Please read the rules, and keep to them.
  1. The hosts reserve the right to moderate according to the group rules and remove photographs at their discretion. There will be no warnings of removal of artwork from the group.
  1. By joining this group you give the hosts full right to use your images in any and all of our groups activities, for example as challenge avatars and in Permanent Features Galleries. Proper credits will always be given.

Specific group rules with regard to challenges:

- All the group members, including the hosts, are entitled to take part in the challenges.

- Hosts are no judges in the challenges. The winners are chosen by voting and hosts have no control over the outcome of that voting. The counting and final decision is made by the challenge program in Redbubble.
There for hosts can enter, but if the host who sets the challenge wins, then winning rights are passed to the next winning image.
- Entries that do not meet the requirements for that specific challenge will be removed without notice.
- Entries for the challenges should also keep to the group rules, and to the general rules of Redbubble.
- Soliciting for votes is not allowed and will lead to disqualification for the challenge, when discovered.
- Images entered to the challenges should be entered to the group at the same time, for the chance to be featured!


Together we hope to create a high quality group that is mutually enriching and inspiring.

You are very welcome to join and to participate.
