Welcome to fanart.tv and thank you for joining.
We hope you enjoy this site as much as we do.
If you know your way around with graphical software consider contributing artwork for everyone to enjoy. Do note we have set some relative high standard so we only accept the ‘best’.
All artwork is moderated after it has been uploaded by users to make sure only acceptable ones end up on the site.
See the getting started guide http://fanart.tv/getting-started/ on where you can find the rules and how to upload images.
We have noticed that some e-mail client automatic move e-mail from fanart.tv to the spam/junkmail box.
This causes you to not only miss the newsletters we sometimes send out but also the e-mail you receive when your uploaded artwork might be denied for a particular reason. We are seeing some great artwork being denied that just need some tiny things fixed but never hear from it again.
