GALLERY: Expo Submissions
If you have a few minutes, please fill out the Visitor Survey. It will help in making this site better.
Due to the popularity of the Gallery, The daily submissions overwhelmed me in four short months. It's original purpose was to demonstrate and encourage the use of GIF89a as an animation format. GIF Animation needs no such encouragement. Consequently, I have restructured the Gallery to accomplish new tasks.
The Exhibition is reserved for examples that demonstrate the strengths and abilities of the GIF89a animation format. The Exhibition room is by invite only, no public submissions will be taken.
The Expo is a open house of GIF Animations. Individual animations are submitted with a link to the submitter, author, and originating site. They are sorted by visual characteristics. Visitors may browse for animations, email the author for permission to use them, or visit the sites.
Since this is a private Web I can't guarantee anything. SPAM entries (30,40,50 or more) from a single site aren't appreciated (unless the images are very useful and free). Really, really pathethic submissions will be removed to make room for new ones. here are some guidelines:
GIF89a animation only, in self-contained GIF files Your GIF must already be on the net, no GIFs taken or stored Amateur submissions are ALWAYS welcome Unless there useful AND free, don't submit every GIF you have. Submit your best, ones people will be interested in using. Sites with large GIF COLLECTIONS should be registered under the COLLECTIONS CATEGORY, post your best. Do NOT submit the same image to multiple categories Obscene, objectionable, or unreachable animations may be removed to make room for others Entries without Valid Email contacts will be removed You may skip Artist/Artist Email only if they are Public Domain images Be very exact on the RIghts to Use NO HTML CODE allowed in the entry. It will be stripped out. Fill out the form as completeley as possible, you won't get an opportunity to revise it.
Have the following information ready:
It is also nice to know...
DO NOT CATEGORIZE IMAGES BY THE SUBJECT OF YOUR SITE! Select a category that best describes what the animation represents. This is an animation gallery, not a Web Site gallery. People looking in the Corporate topic are looking for animations that might be used for a corporate, business, office web page. Putting a dog animation for your veternarian business isn't appropriate.
NOTE: All Submission form are located on the primary site in the U.S.A If you are on a mirror site you will need to use the BACK button to navigate back here after submitting.
