What is the policy concerning photographs of corpses, cruelty or death?
Images depicting real life corpses or death are allowed providing that a reviewing staff member does not consider the work to be unnecessarily graphic. Photographs judged to be unnecessarily graphic will be removed. All allowable submissions of this nature must be marked with a Mature Content tag.
Images of animal cruelty are not allowed and will be immediately removed as they come to the attention of the staff.
