Submission Policies

Welcome to TheatreArtists

This group is for artists who do work for plays.

Theatre Artists, when you add your work to your DA page, please state your relationship to the work you submit in your description or comment. When you submit it to us, we'll use the information to put it into the correct gallery.

This is a group for all types of theatre artists. Please submit your theatre related deviations: playwrighting, scenic design, theatre photography, costume design, lighting design, prop artistry, makeup design, poster design, etc.

To Contribute Artwork

1. Join TheatreArtists as a Member.
2. Click on the Submit Art Button on the front page.
2. Click on the gallery tab, then the + sign on the Featured folder.

All submissions go to the featured folder, and we place your artwork in the right category if it is accepted.

Submission Policies

:bulletblack: Please only submit one deviation per week.
:bulletblack: Mature content will not be accepted at this time.
:bulletblack: Designs and technical work should be for musicals or straight plays.*
:bulletblack: Two deviations of the same work or strikingly similar works may not be accepted. This is to keep variation in our gallery.
:bulletblack: Please state your relationship to the work in your description of the work you submit i.e. set designer, assistant lighting designer, properties artisan, properties designer, publicity manager and so on. We want to celebrate what work you have done on the piece you submit! It also helps us put it into the correct category.

*Check our affiliates for a place to show your work that is not exactly theatre and done for a play, such as Cos-Play, which we cannot accept. We have a very supportive group of affiliates! Many of our members also do Cos-Play and have found galleries in those groups to promote their wares.


Gallery Folders



We've had a busy month with lots of new artworks in our gallery. I'd LOVE to get more scale models into our gallery. Let's put out the call for scenery model-builders! I'd LOVE to get more make-up design classwork into our gallery, too. Make-up for a play is even better!  Are there any end of semester productions to submit?
your humble moderator,
Scene Painting Challenge is finished! Before I announce the winners, I must tell everyone our judges went beyond the call of duty and did an amazing job in engaging our challengers in conversation in order to learn more about them and their artwork. Reading the comments was fabulous! Many thanks and big hugs go to our judges,,, If you want to judge our next challenge, whatever it is, just note me!

Please do not submit artwork if it is not for a theatre play. Please visit our fabulous affiliates for any cos-play or role-play costume and weapons. I love those things but they don't go into this particular gallery. It seems I must make that announcement at least once a year even though clear directions are in our submission policies.
Theatre artists do such a wide variety of artwork to put bread on the table and enjoyment in their lives...this gallery features theatre artwork only!  
We are looking for any CAD work (save as jpg) or pictures  scans) of your wonderful hand-drafting. for design or construction,  and any LIGHT PLOT work.  Of course, costume designs, lighting designs, scene designs, makeup designs and other designs done for a play can be submitted. Either production photos or your drawings! Or both. We also accept classwork of theatre projects that will never see the stage!
