About Informative Notes



NUMBER 1 REQUIREMENT FOR ANY WORK SUBMITTED TO THIS GROUP: FANWORK MUST BE HISTORICALLY INFORMATIVE.

We believe that Notes are the most adequate means for sharing information in deviantART. That is why we require you to provide in your work's note a few lines, in your own words, about the event, person, movement, etc. that you are portraying.

In case the work doesn't include an historically informative note, we will accept it AS LONG as it's of EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY, and that will be determined by the admins who review the submissions of this group. For examples of "exceptional works" please refer to some of the works we put in the Featured folder.

If you aren't certain if your work is "exceptional", we suggest you simply save yourself the trouble and just add historical information in your note.

We don't want a thesis for a note. i.e. it doesn't have to be long. Just a brief but concise description of what your work is portraying.

:iconblackdivider0redo::iconblackdivider2plz::iconblackdivider3plz::iconblackdivider4plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz:

SUBMISSION RULES




We accept works that:


Are submitted in the right folder Otherwise it will be rejected. Please refer to the list of folders above to know where to submit your work.

Portray an event that happend at least 10 years ago. That's the minimum we require to consider it "historical". Therefore, any event that took place in 2006 CAN BE ACCEPTED. Any event younger than that will be rejected.

Feature OCs, as long as it has relevant historical information. In the case of "regions", we require you to write a justification of why you think that they are distinct enough from the canon countries to have their own personification.

Have shipping in them, AS LONG AS the ship is historically justified. However, if it justifies "love" through hate, widespread violence, rape, or war, or other criteria that lead to hatred between nations, then we will not accept it.

:new: Are inspired or are a reinterpetation of a historical painting. We have a few great examples like this reinterpretation of Italia and Germania as well as this and this drawings inspired in Guernica.

We do NOT accept the following:


Alternative history pieces, recent events art, or speculative fiction/future stories.

WIPs nor Project Announcements

Pieces with art not made by the original artist. This includes traced bases, photo backgrounds, and basicly, plagiarism. Exception for photograph backgrounds: If the photo is a stock photo, or a photo that the artist took themselves, it is welcome. Stock photos need a link back to the source, however.

Pieces solely based on the Hetalia anime/manga. (Pay special attention if you were planning to submit in the Costumes or Cosplay folders). Hetalia a satirical and oversimplified reinterpretation of history, and it may at times represent characters or events in an inaccurate way, which is why we can't consider it as a reliable source of historical information. Hetalia might aid you to remember important events or spark an interest in you to pay more attention in history class, but remember that Hetalia will never be a substitute to an actual history book.

Tribute pieces to disaster and tragedy:
This group is about historically informative fan work. A tribute piece does not inform people about the history, and invites the audience to gawk at human despair. Please refer to this journal entry and this other journal entry to know more about this issue.

:iconblackdivider0redo::iconblackdivider2plz::iconblackdivider3plz::iconblackdivider4plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz:

AUTOMATIC REJECTIONS:



We will automatically reject any fanwork that doesn't reflect the artist's research and understanding on the topic their art is focusing on. Our rejections are mostly based on the artist's note, so make sure that the note on the fanwork you are planning to submit DOES NOT have the following characteristics:


Doesn't have enough information: We will reject your work if we consider your work and/or note poorly reflected actual research.

Tells the audience to look up the information for themselves

Only provide an external link (e.g. Wikipedia), and tells the audience to "check the link for more information".

Important: if you provide an external link just to complement your research and prove the reliability of the information you already provided in your own words, then we will accept it. What we do not accept is art that relies only on a wikipedia link as a free ticket to enter the group.

Copy-pasted information.


:target: If you believe your art has been mistakenly rejected, please ASK RIGHT AWAY! We tend to not give explanations of our decisions since we expect you to read the rules and realize what you did wrong (besides occasionally being too lazy, busy, or tired to explain). Yet, if you feel like the rules don't give you an explanation on what's wrong with your deviation, you have all the right to demand for one! Don't hesitate to ask!

:iconblackdivider0redo::iconblackdivider2plz::iconblackdivider3plz::iconblackdivider4plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz:

How to deal with unpleasant history:



We assume that the art in our galleries was made with the intention of discussing history, even the disgusting aspects like colonialism, racism, sexism, etc. There are depictions of Nazis in our gallery. We do not want to glorify these things. We ask that comments on these deviations are respectful, rather than angry, but we also want the art in our galleries to be respectful of the various horrible things that humanity has done.

If a deviation in our gallery crosses the line between respect and disturbing, please contact the mods about it via COMMENTS. Don't contact us via Group note because we rarely check that area.

:iconblackdivider0redo::iconblackdivider2plz::iconblackdivider3plz::iconblackdivider4plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz::iconblackdivider5plz:

Thank you for reading everything till the end! We are constantly looking for ways to make this group a nice place to be around, full of art where you can always learn something new.

Feel free to give us some feedback about the way we are managing the group, as long as its with the purpose of improving!

Let's all show the world that us artists can make Hetalia a cool way to learn history! So open that old and dusty history book, get your materials ready, and START MAKING ART!

Your Staff,

I apologize for the delay regarding this, it's unfair to the winners especially. So to note, we did not have many entrees that were in the visual medium. But that's fine, we as a group are happy that people submitted entries so enlighten us on other aspects of history. We thank you all for making the world a bigger place for everyone.

Let us state the first and second place winners of this contest.

In 1st Place
Silent Night by 11monar
11monar.deviantart.com/art/aph….
We felt that this deviation took first place not only just for the colourful art style, but for the interesting historical information that was provided. Personally I was not aware of Tomten and the folklore and his importance to the history of Santa Claus as we know him today.

11monar your reward as promised is a full artistic work given to you from  Chromatic Skies> chromaticskies.deviantart.com/.
               Your artwork featured in the main page for a month or until the next contest comes about.
               A free commission from Sildesalaten >sildesalaten.deviantart.com/
               A donation of 1000 points from me to you.

2nd place
Robin Hood and Chibi Britain by enigmaplatypus
enigmaplatypus.deviantart.com/…
We are all familiar with the story of Robin Hood, but for those not familiar with the folk hero this deviation is kind enough to give anyone interested in the folk heroes of England a good starting point for them to learn.

Your reward is An honourable 2nd place mention as well as 500 points from me and a small drawing from Chromatic and Sildesalaten and skies as well.

That depends. If it's obviously unfinished, badly photographed etc, it runs the risk of being rejected. However, the main important thing is that the entry contains historical information and is on a historical topic

In the group rules, it states that: An event must be at least 10 years old for us to accept it as historical.

Hey there Historical Hetalia Team! This is Sarah again, inquiring about one of my pieces. I recently did a drawing on the African Aids epidemic and it was declined by this group. I wondered why this had happened and if there was anything I could change to have it accepted. If my notes are lacking or too partisan for this group, I understand. It would simply be nice to know why.

Hi
From the description it seems the artwork largely focuses on a contemporary issue, not a historical one. This is my main reason for voting against it, I can't tell for sure what the other moderators thought. You write a lot about the issue that AIDS is, and urge people to try to help. However, this is a historical Hetalia group, and all artworks in the gallery have to be historically related. 

Sorry for not clarifying why we didn't accept your drawing earlier.

Ah, AIDs does have a history along with violence against women being a historical pattern throughout the entirety of the human race, but I guess I should have put that in the description. I'll think of that before I submit another piece to this group! Thanks again for clarifying. I appreciate it!

I have a rather big problem that I'm sure other people have gotten before. I frequently get "People Died Guilt". Recently I drew a bookmark for my Two Cities book of France catching blood in a wine glass, but the entire time I felt a little like I was being disrespectful towards the Revolution victums, even though I knew I wasn't. Historical Hetalia is one of my favorite parts of the fandom, and if there was someone that could give me suggestions on how I could enjoy it while still feeling like I'm respecting real history that would be very helpful. Also, this is an awesome group. Thanks a bunch for making it.

Not really sure what tips I could give you to enjoy it or how to get rid of the 'people died guilt', but I think you respect it by doing some good research on the events and portraying them as historically accurate as you can. It's awful people died, but it did happen and it's part of history. People should know about it. That's what this group is about.
