Suggestion Guidelines



:bulletblack: I only take Photojournalism suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps, portraits, or traditional art).

:bulletblack: Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

:bulletblack: Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

:bulletred: Ask yourself this: Is it a newsworthy image? Is it something you would see in a local or national paper? If yes, keep going!

:bulletblack: Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page, put DD Suggestion in the subject, and include the thumb code along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation. Please keep 1 suggestion per note.

:bulletblack: I strongly encourage that suggested images have some sort of information relating to the picture in the artist's comments (description of event, date, location, name(s) of subjects if applicable, etc).

:bulletblack: Don't hesitate to self-promote!

:star: PJ often works in the realm of controversy.  If you’ve received any unsettling comments or notes because your image was selected as a DD, shoot me a note and I’ll do my best to settle the issue.  


I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.

What IS Photojournalism?

Fri Sep 5, 2014, 7:17 PM by tanikel:icontanikel:




”I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.”
                                                                                  - James Nachtwey



Photographers often capture nouns.  It’s the whole reason for the image, right?  Photojournalism is all about the verbs.  They have just seconds to capture key elements of events, to tell that story.  Photojournalism gives us newsworthy photographs wherein the primary motivation is to recount a story. The photographer will not disturb the natural events of the scene (such as posing their subjects or asking them to reenact the scene).  


In the real world, the photographs are accompanied by at least two sentences that tell the ’who, what, when, where and why of the image.  These sentences are known as captions or cutlines.  They inform the reader of what’s going on with the image.    Captions deserve their own journal.  


Accuracy of the image is vital to photojournalism.  Journalists are ethically bound to not change anything about the story – no cloning out of unsightly poles, adding elements to the scene, or even removing blemishes.  If it happened, it happened.  At most, they can do basic editing such as correcting white-balance, slight sharpening, a push on the saturation, etc.  Photojournalism isn’t fine art, it’s not the photographer’s job to make anyone look pretty.

PLACES

Newsworthy photographs in which the location or setting is the main focus.  One example is Stamatis' photo of the fire raging in Athens. It is a good landscape view of the city yet tells the story of what happened. This is the difference between other ordinary APN (Animal Plants and Nature) pictures.

This has to be one of the best and most moving gallery on deviantArt.  I stop in to look because "chuckles" caught my eye.  I was just going to write a trite about smiles being universal when I did something I rarely do.  I went ahead and started looking at the whole gallery.  And you like cats.  Wish I was 30 (o.k., 35)years younger.  Semper Fidelis!
