Expired Submissions

Hello everyone,

First of all, we want to apologize to all our members, recently there have been a high amount of expired submissions. We are aware of the problem and working to resolve it. I do understand how frustrating it is to wait for your submission to be decided upon and then find out it has expired but for now please have a bit of patience with us while we work on a solution for this issue.

Additionally, I would like to ask that you do not send us more notes asking about your expired submission; if your submission has expired recently please feel free to resubmit it if you wish. If you have any comments or suggestions in this regards please post them here.

We appreciate your patience while we work on this, thank you.

Have a wonderful day and take care,
The team at Traditional-Media

I submitted a piece a week or so ago and it was declined (not expired though)
I was wondering why is wasn't accepted, maybe it's something I can improve upon for the future
Here is a link to the piece…

Thank you!

I submitted a piece a month ago, and four days ago it expired. I've been too busy to react to that sooner, but I was wondering why it was never accepted?

I just joined this group and I have read the FAQ but I would like to know if I have an artwork that is mixed media but 100% traditional media can it still be accepted. I tend use watercolours with a touch of acrylics or oil pastel for highlights so I would like to know if I can still submit works like that. Please let me know. Thank you :) (Smile)

Hello! I am thankful for being in this group! :)

Also, do you guys accept artwork that was touched up by Photoshop? My submissions were in graphite, but I didn't change anything other than darken it and adding a bit of color in Photoshop.  Please reply so that I don't make the same mistake again when I submit artwork.  Thank you! :)

Hello, I have a question. I've submitted a deviation to the group a while ago. I hadn't yet received an acceptance or decline, but now it says the submission is expired. What does this mean and what do I do with it now? Thanks in advance
