What is a Daily Deviation?

The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.

A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?
FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?



How To Suggest a Daily Deviation:

:pointr:-Find a deviation on deviantART that you would like to see featured.

:pointr:-Take notice of the deviations category. Example: Traditional, Digital etc

:pointr:-Find the appropriate deviantART Gallery Moderator that Moderates the category that the deviation is in.
Links are provided in this Blog that show every Moderator and their Respective Sections.

:pointr:-Send a note to the Gallery Moderator. Title: "Daily Deviation Suggestion" or something to that effect

:pointr:-Make sure you paste the link and/or thumbnail of the deviation you are suggesting in the note (preferably a thumbnail)
The "thumb" code is on the right side of each image description. Copy the thumb code, it will show a thumbnail of the image when pasted in the note.

:pointr:-Leave a short description of why you think the piece should become a DD if you wish.

:pointr:-Send note


Some things you should know

Anyone can suggest a daily deviation. Suggesting someones work for a DD could give that artist the opportunity to reach a much larger audience and gain more exposure. It only takes a few minutes, and it will really make someones day. Try to suggest one as often as possible!

Remember that as a general rule recipients must wait at least 3 months from receiving their last DD before they are eligible for a new one. So if a person has received a DD in the last 3 months, wait a while before suggesting another of their works.

Certain Gallery Moderators and Staff may have specific details on how to suggest Daily Deviations to them. I suggest that you scan their front page for any specific information before suggesting one.

Moderators do receive a lot of suggestions, so not every piece that you suggest may become a DD.
Also keep in mind that due to the sheer volume of notes that Gallery Moderators receive, you may or may not receive a reply.
So be remain both persistent and patient, and your diligence will pay off!
Remember that you are doing this as an act of kindness.

You sure can. I've seen a few DDs given to members who suggested themselves. There was one moderator that even encouraged it in one of her journals so there's no shame in do so. :D

You sure that's okay? I think that may induce flaming.

auxeru Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012
I've seen people get DDs that way and they didn't get flamed. Besides, most of those who do flame DDs are either jealous, immature, or just plain ignorant of what a DD is. At best, suggesting yourself shows you take some pride in your work.

Sorry for butting in, but I had NO idea you could nominate yourself! I'd feel bad to nominate my own work, though...the moderator(s) would probably get extremely mad at me or something. :ohnoes:
Reply
:iconauxeru:
auxeru Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012
You didn't? :lol: No need to feel bad now. Sometime in 2010 a girl suggested one of her own because she had thought it was her best work up to that point. She had progressed a long way from when she first became a member and they gave the DD to her. They even included her comment in the feature. :D

I would love to suggest one, but i still have a question - do i need a sub (premium) to suggest a DD? (i'm asking beacuse of the thumb code.)
Reply
:iconalltheoriginalnames:
alltheoriginalnames Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012
No you do not need to be a premium member to suggest a Daily Deviation.
And the thumbcode should work in the note system regardless, if I am not mistaken.
