Becoming a Member

To submit art into the tolkien community, you must be a member of the group. Joining is easy. All you need to do is press the Join the Group at the top of the page, and send a request. You'll be automatically admitted.

Submitting Art Into the Gallery

Before you submit into the gallery, please read the Terms of Submission at… . You must be a member to submit art into the gallery. You can only submit TWO deviations a week, from Sunday to Saturday.

1. Click the gallery folder you wish to submit your artwork into.

2. In the gallery folder you will see 'Submit To This Folder' at the top right. Click that.

3. You can either upload a new deviation into the folder (and go through the normal process of submitting a deviation, which would go to both your personal gallery and the tolkien gallery), or you can upload a pre-existing deviation. If you are doing the latter, read step 4.

4. Click "Contribute An Existing Deviation" and find the one you wish to submit. Click "Ok", and, if it meets guidelines, your deviation will appear in the tolkien gallery once approved by moderators.

tolkien has the right NOT TO UPLOAD your submission. Moderators donate their free time in adding and rejecting deviations. It's not possible to give feedback on every rejected deviation. Thank you for your understanding.

Hello, I plan on attempting to get people together to make a series of short films based on the Silmarillion. I was wondering if a journal/blog post could be made here to advertise or not. I would very much appreciate it, because I could use all the help I can get in getting the word out.

If not I completely understand~
Thanks for your time!

Just a quick question. Is it normal for submissions to take so long to get an approval? Sweating a little...

Hi, it normally takes 10-15 days yes, we receive many submissions and don't want to spam our members daily Huggle!
