Kingdomhearts Club Rules

Please read the Group Rules before you submit!

:star:Members can submit 1 deviation a day and visitors once a week.To join our group please click on the button on the front page to enable more gallery priveleges!

:star:Only Kingdom Hearts related artwork will be allowed into the gallery.That’s pretty obvious. So have it related to KH in some way, whether it's a world or a crossover or what not. If it's just a Dragon Ball Z character, or a picture of Spongebob and Patrick dancing at a club, it will be denied!

:star:Please submit the artwork to the correct folder. It should be OBVIOUS where ALL your art pieces go. If it’s just Sora, into the Sora folder. If it’s just Axel, into the Axel folder. If it’s cosplay, into the cosplay folder, etc. If it looks like it doesn’t belong in any of the available folders, but is kingdom hearts related, then it belongs in Misc. Submissions into the wrong folder will be denied instantly without notice.

:star:Only original artwork will be allowed into the gallery. Don’t trace or copy or steal someone else's work then hope for it to be accepted. It will not...and if it is? It was probably and accident and you will be caught and reported for art theft. On that note, if it is your original piece, do NOT put the copyright Kingdom Hearts logo on it! We cannot accept those either, so if you decided to watermark your art with a KH logo, it will be denied! Stock images are allowed so long as you provide credit and a link back to the reference picture clearly in your description. We just don’t want to get into trouble, okay? If you have any questions regarding this term please feel free to inquire at the club via an Admin.

:star:You must adhere to deviantART's policies which includes tagging the art as containing adult material. That means if anyone's naked, put up a MATURE CONTENT Filter. It’s nice to have a warning for certain material such as gore, violence, nudity, or strong language. Some people in this group aren’t allowed or just don’t want to see it. Questions regarding this should be directed to the deviantART FAQs.

:star:Be respectful of your fellow artists' work. We have not had a problem with this in the past, but it is worth stating for reference. If you harass other members the issue will be investigated and the guilty party will have Group privileges revoked.

:star:No Renders are allowed! This means that no 3D downloaded models of Kingdom Hearts Characters will be accepted in any form in this club/group. They still belong to the property of Square Enix and Disney, and this also includes edited or fixed wallpapers and things of the like.

:star:kingdomhearts can and may make changes to these terms at any time with or without prior notice.

That being said we hope you will all be patient as changes are being made to make your experience more richer. We hope you all enjoy your new access and use it wisely. Thank you!


Kingdom Hearts Group is proud to affiliate with these Kingdom Hearts, Square Enix/Disney Groups!

:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen:“To a Wonderful Year” Contest!:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletgreen:

And so let the New Year’s contest commence! Welcome one and all to :iconkingdomhearts:'s awesome group contest! It has been awhile since we held a contest or did any activity that included all the beautiful members here, and I am so grateful that everyone was more than willing to participate as well as donate prizes for this contest to even begin, so I give my thanks to everyone who responded to the previous blog posts! I won't ramble too much, I want us to get right to the point! So now, for the fruits of our labor! :la:

Theme and Description: :iconroxascornerplz:
“To a Wonderful Year”, the title of this contest, relates to the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations that are held all over the world in memory of the year that has passed as well as what has yet to come! There may be people who celebrate this special event with friends and family, or maybe they wish to spend it alone... Or just not celebrate at all... But nonetheless, these characters have all chosen and planned out what they will be doing for this New Year’s Eve/Day! Who will they be with? What will they be up to? Or will they wake up not remembering a single thing?! Simply put your favorite characters into a New Year’s setting or scenario and see whether sparks will fly or shots will be fired! Or, heck, whether they simply watched a movie then woke up and went back to work.

Rules: :iconkairiaww-plz:
:bulletred:Kingdom Hearts based! Or at least be Disney related! (If you must ask, yes, Star Wars and Marvel ARE ALLOWED, however, they have to contain Disney elements so that the judges are sure this is Kingdom Hearts related art.)

:bulletgreen:New Year’s Themed! (This is, after all, a New Year’s contest! How did your chosen characters decide to celebrate the coming of a new year? Or the memories of the year they will now leave behind?)

:bulletyellow:One Submission Per Member! (Multiple submissions are not allowed. However, if you submit early but then decide to switch your submission with something else then that is totally fine.)

:bulletred:Members Only! (If you’re just a watcher and not a member, it wouldn’t be fair now would it? Simply click the ‘become member’ button and you’re already in! But no, you cannot enter if you are not apart of the team.)

:bulletgreen:Original Work Only! (No stolen work, no traced work, no rendered 3D work, basically if it is not yours and you did not make it yourself then it is not allowed.)

:bulletyellow:Written Works Are Allowed! (Yes, you can write fanfiction’s or poems. But you have to keep it less than 1500 words. Slightly over by 100 is fine... But if it ends up being 1700 or more then it isn’t allowed.)

:bulletred:Explain what is happening in the descriptions! (A picture can speak a thousand words, and yet sometimes us judges have no idea what’s happening or what inspired you. So please please PLEASE write a small description about your piece, what’s happening in it, or what inspired you, or any goofy entertaining story that is occurring in your submission.)

:bulletgreen:Do NOT Attack or Shame Other Contestants! (It’s rude and disrespectful and will get you kicked out of this contest and this group in less than a second! This is a fun contest! No need to get so intense over it!)

:bulletyellow:NO KINGDOM HEARTS LOGOS OR OFFICIAL LOGOS OR ANYTHING COPYRIGHTED ON OR IN YOUR WORK! (This cannot be stressed ENOUGH because to this day people STILL submit work with the logos in their art, and they STILL get upset when we decline without reading the rules! It is auto-disqualified if you put a KH Logo stamp in it, so don’t do it! Not even for the fanfiction image previews!)

Contest Deadline::iconnamisweatdrop-plz:
January 5th, 2015. 9PM CST(Central Standard Time)

Another note before anyone gets too excited. We need a minimum of 5 submissions by the deadline. The only reason this contest is happening is because five and more persons have claimed they want to enter the contest. It would not be much of a contest or competition if only 3 people entered... and it would only be worse if not even three joined... so if by the deadline there are less than 5 persons than unfortunately we will have to close the contest.:shrug:

If the deadline changes it will be updated accordingly and members/participants will be notified.

Hi! This work of mine has been declined twice, once from the 'Group' category and then from the 'Organization XIII' category. I'm not sure where I should be submitting this or why it is being declined in the first place. I could use some help. Thank you for your time!…
AyameHikari Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Student General Artist
In the rules it clearly states no Kingdom Hearts logos. None whatsoever. And yes we keep seeing this but you keep failing to read the rules and not to be rude, it's becoming very upsetting when people ignore the rules then ask why they are being declined. If you remove the logo then resubmit, we will gladly accept your work. But please please please read over the rules again so you understand why we keep declining.

Looks like its being declined because of the official KH logo in the middle of it from what I can see, sorry about that >.<
