Group Guidelines, Please read before joining.

Submissions should be finished pieces of work. This group should be an exhibition of refinement.

We do not accept slap-dash drawings, anything blurry/fuzzy (this includes pictures even if it is Steampunk related), stick figures, or non-steampunk related pieces.

We do NOT accept submissions that have a couple of cogs or a pair of goggles throw on at random. Especially if everything else in the piece is modern and not of the Victorian era. This includes jewelry, weaponry, art, costume photography, etc, etc, and ever one of these submissions is subject to be denied.

Submissions should fall under the following categories (not DeviantArt categories): Steampunk Costumes, Steampunk Arts/Crafts/Sculptures, Steampunk Literature, Steampunk Fine Art, Steampunk Comics, etc.

☼ Stock is not allowed, no exceptions.

☼ Nudity is not allowed, no exceptions.

☼ Gore is not allowed, no exceptions.

There are specific categories for you to submit your art to. Art submitted to the wrong folder is subject to be declined until submitted to the correct folder or asked to be moved because there was a mistake. Example: If you have DRAWN a piece of art please submit it to the Artwork folder not Costume Photography. That is a folder for photography of costumes, cosplay, and modeling in the Steampunk/Victorian category.

Submissions to the Featured folder are automatically denied. Please submit to the appropriate folder for each individual submission.

Deviants may only submit one piece per folder, per day. Anything that looks like a repeat pose is subject to be denied.

All entries are subject to a vote.

Submissions are to be only Steampunk themed. This includes Victorian and Old-west based Steampunk works. Sub-genres, such as Dieselpunk, are also accepted.

My Dearest Steamers,

               First, I apologize for my own personal absence from our lovely little group here.  My life has been busy so my job as co-admin has dwindled over the last several months and with that approving many submissions.  Second, as I am going through the nearly 300 submissions (of this month alone) I am finding that MANY members are submitting their work to the Costume Photography folder when it is clearly NOT of this genre.  If you have submitted something not related of this category to this folder I am going to simply deny the submission.  I'm sorry, but there are simply too many entries for me to either comment on every single one of them and tell each and every person which folder to re-submit it to, re-submit the misfiled work myself, or accept it and move it around in the group afterward.  That would truly take hours upon hours and neither of us admins have the time for such things.  I ask that when any of you lovely members submit a piece that you place it within its proper category and not lump everything in to the Costume Photography folder.  Please understand that either of us Admins denying your submission has nothing to do with anyone personally, it is either because it is misfiled or not Steampunk/Victorian related at all.  I refer you all to our Group Guidelines on our Main Page.  Please re-read before re-submitting your denied pieces.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  We, the admins, will try to respond to your questionnaires, messages, etc, etc, as soon as we are able to.

Thank you all for reading and being so understanding,

I was wondering, are stamps about steampunk allowed in this group? If yes, which folder?
ChescaTipton Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, and I would say either Artwork or Posters and Advertising.

Hi, I wanted to submit a piece of art, but when I try, the only folder available is costume photography. The drop down list for the other folders isn't there. 
Does anyone know how I can submit to the proper folder?
