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 6 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 6 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.

this is my friends work but do you believe it is good enough to be accepted as a daily deviation?

I never got a DD, but I'm not complaining. I just try to improve myself as much as I can.
I know a lot of great artists here on DA who never got any DD and I even once suggested someone's deviation, but it didn't take.
Sometimes I feel like these DD's are more like a popularity contest :(

You can maybe submit your art in groups that suggest DDs, like #GetDailyDeviations, so that more people see it and suggest it. :)

DDs not always go to popular artists. On the opposite, most CVs don't accept suggestions with too many faves and comments. They prefer to give the spotlight to less known, talented artists. :nod:

So, you never know if your lucky day is close! :giggle: Keep up your talented job and your talent will be noticed soon! :heart:

I have always wanted a DD. Is that sad? :(
phoenixleo Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013
Nope. Self suggestions are accepted. Do make sure you are following the guidelines.

Nope. Because I would like one too, but my friends come first.

That is so thoughtful of you.

I suggested a DD once (b̶u̶t̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶I̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶k̶ ̶a̶n̶ ̶a̶r̶r̶o̶w̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶k̶n̶e̶e̶ ). I don't think I'll be doing it again. :p

Please don't give up! :hug: Continue suggesting and you never know if your suggestion will be accepted! It's so great the feeling to make another person happy that it deserves the declining of some of our suggestions!

Go to the galleries of nice groups, to other people's favourites, to the Front Page, to the group #GetDailyDeviations etc. You will find countless pieces that deserve this honor and deserve a bit of your time! <3

Keep up and you will soon be rewarded for your effort and Community spirit! :heart:
