|What is the Image of the Day?
The Image of the Day is a showcase of developer images submitted by our members. Every day one image is selected and featured on our front page.
What kind of images can I post?
The Image of the Day is for screenshots of your projects in development or completed. This may include games, tools, models, art, research, and demos. If you have permission, you can also post images of industry events, new technologies in action and material of interest to game developers.
I've posted an image, why can't I see it in the gallery? Is there a limit to how many images I can submit each day?
Images must first be approved by the moderator. If your image does not appear within 24 hours you can contact him or her for assistance. You can submit as many images as you want, but it is up to the moderator to approve them.
When will my image be featured on the front page ("Image of the Day")?
After they are approved all images appear in the gallery, and for a short time will also appear on the front page as minor thumbnails below the Image of the Day. The moderator then selects images suitable for the Image of the Day and places them into a queue. These are then featured as the Image of the Day in roughly the same order that they were submitted.
How do you decide which images are suitable for Image of the Day?
Images are selected based on the quality of the submitted screenshots (the main image in particular), their interest level for GameDev.net’s audience, and the length and quality of the text describing the image. A written description will greatly increase your chances of being featured.
Additionally, providing several images in your submission will improve the chances that your submission will receive comments and be enqueued for the Image of the Day. Please make sure that you demonstrate varied content in the additional images.
