Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

A Daily Deviation is a feature, selected by Community Volunteers or Staff Members, from the galleries here on DeviantArt.

An assortment of submissions are chosen each day by this select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.

Individual staff/volunteers may show different levels of activity which may lead to certain genres or types of artwork to be chosen more often than others. If you believe that a certain type of artwork is being overlooked or under-represented please feel free to offer suggestions by noting Moonbeam13. NOTE: Anyone can suggest a daily deviation and self-suggesting is not only allowed, but encouraged.

:note: Guidelines
:bulletred: There is a "6-month rule" which means an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months.
:bulletred: Daily Deviation selectors are limited to a maximum of one selection per day. This has been put in place to focus on quality vs quantity.
:bulletred: If there is no one assigned to an area you want to suggest a DD to, please note Moonbeam13 with your DD suggestion.
:bulletred: Please only suggest to only ONE person, do not send the same suggestion to multiple people - it causes great confusion - Thank you!
