Submissions: What we mean by "Quality"Over the last several months since we opened the gallery for submissions, there have been enough questions as to what we mean by "quality" of art within our Submission Guidelines to warrant a closer look at the subject. Just what does "quality"? look like? How is it measured? When submitting artists continue to ask why everything they submit gets declined then we haven't been specific enough. Our submission guidelines will be updated soon to be more specific. So in the meantime, to help clarify: Here is what we mean by "quality".
a high level of value or excellence, or how well or poorly something is. Quality is a measuring word. The AnthroCommunity group seeks to feature Good Quality work or better. There are certain aspects of every artwork that affect the quality of the presentation. Some aspects describe low quality while others, high quality.

Well anthro or anthropomorphic isn't strictly correct when considering the origins of the words. Anthropomorphism means that a non-human entity has human-like qualities. When dealing with photomorphs, usually the base is a human and you give them animal qualities, hence the difference between anthropomorphic and zoomorphic! I suppose furry could apply to either as it has no implication that start point was either animal or human. To the layman, everything just falls under the anthro umbrella anyway!
1) Must depict a zoomorphic/anthro/furry character that contains a hybridized mix of human and animal features
2) Medium must be photomanipulation, using at least 2 stock photos
