Any EB Member may submit art for inclusion in the EB Art Guide. Please begin by searching the existing EB database to be sure the piece is not already included.
The art submission page is accessed by following the "Add Art
" link in the Member Info section on the left of a user's "My Page" page. Please enter information into all fields where the information is known. Listed below is the most important information required for all art submissions. Please review and adhere to these guidelines and you're submission should glide through the approval process. Thanks!
Name - Please refer to the Naming New Art Entries wiki page for guidelines on how to name a new art submission.
Year - Required for all art submissions. Four digits please. If you are uncertain, make your best guess...or do a little research.
Class - If it advertises an event/gig - it's a poster. Please use dropdown menu.
Artist - Please use dropdown menu. It lists the most popular artists added to the database. If your artist is not listed there, click on "More". If it's not there, select "Other" and add the artist's name - last name first. (Example: Forbes, Alan).
Band - Please use dropdown menu. It lists the most popular bands added to the database. If your band is not listed there, click on "More". If it's not there, select "Other" and add the band name. Do not add "The" at the beginning of the band's name. Example: Cult, The. If it is a multiple band event, add the headliner band. List all other band names in the notes section. They will be added by a team member during the approval process.
Venue - Please use dropdown menu. If it is not listed, select "Other" and add the venue name per the Venue Format guidelines.
Image - Please refer to the linked Wiki page for image submittal guidelines. Images that require cropping or resizing will slow the approval process.

Release Date - This is the date the art was released to the general public. If you don't know the exact date, leave it blank. The correct format is Year, Month, Day (example - 2009-12-10). All art submissions with an accompanying release date appear at the top of the approval queue for immediate attention. Please do not enter 0000-00-00. It doesn't help us and your submission will be overlooked.
Event - Please insert the date of the event in this field.
Note - Please list all other information you think is important for us to know, especially additional band names (for gigposters).
Please note that in order to facilitate pageloading speed, the initial listings in the Artist, Band and Venue drop-down menus are incomplete and include only the highest-ranked listings based on an internal ranking system that gives points based on views and related inventory on the site (8:1). To view the complete listings, click the "More" button to the right and the Add Art page will reload with the full list. Adding Images
Any EB Member may submit images for inclusion with existing EB Art Guide entries. This is done by following the "Add Image" link in the "Image Tools" section of any entry's Image Gallery. You should only add images that are better than the existing ones or that show some special detail of the print. Please do not add images to be used to show the condition of a print for the purposes of selling; this is for education. You may show off your frame jobs if you like. Keep in mind that images take space and space costs money so do not go overboard. All images will be subject to approval.
Please follow the Image Guidelines
when submitting images.
