Welcome to #ZooPhotographers

Though a relatively new group, there are some initial ground rules that you should follow.

Submission Rules
Everyone is allocated a submission limit of 1 deviation to each folder each day, this may change in the future, but for now I consider it reasonable for a new group. Also we expect photos to be of a certain quality, not an unreasonable level but good, clear focus and some talent present, not a phone-snap.

What's NOT accepted:
• Humans in photos. (at all, even a body part like a hand, finger, etc.)
• Wild animals (this is a zoo/reserve photography group)
• Dead animals (with the exception of prey being fed)
• Blurry images
• Grainy images
• Near identical images (i.e. two images submitted of the same shot, just the tiniest change present)
• Big, over the top watermarks/copyright. A stamp is ok, but it should not take up more than 1/8 of the image and not be directly on the focus point unless subtle.
• Vulgar content - mistreated animals and sexual content (i.e. mating) is not allowed.
• You must be a member to submit content.
• Submit your shot into the right folder or it will be declined.
• No visible bars, glass reflections and try to avoid artificial backgrounds (i.e. painted walls with mock scenery, more bars), this is acceptable if the background is out of focus.
• Though we are a photography group, hyper-realistic animal drawings/artworks will be considered, but the standards will be high.
• Dogs/cats/hamsters/domesticated animals of all kinds are not accepted, this page is for wild animals in captivity.
• If you wish to know why your submission was declined please send us a note.

If you are confused regarding which folder your image goes into please read this thread for definitions of each group and examples of animals: click.

Hey gang!

This is one of my most favorite groups on this community. May be one of the contributions/gallery helpers?

I'd appreciate it and would love to help.

I've sent you an invite. It seems that I am the only one who supports the help is really appreciated because I'm busy, too.

Can I submit something even with the  deviantART  watermark or is that too much?
wolfenphotography Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, you can. Sorry for the late reply.

Just thought I'd let you guys know, while looking for a folder to submit to I noticed just a few animals who didn't look like they were in the right folder.
Meerkats are not rodents and a few polar bear pictures ended up in the 'other' folder.
