1. Is the Top Artists Directory an official DeviantART list?

No. The listings found at TOP-ArtistsDirectory are unofficial. The views expressed on this website are those of the TOP-ArtistsDirectory Team alone and do not necessarily reflect those of deviantART or its Administration.

2. Is this an exclusive group of artists based on popularity?

No. The list is based on quality. But it doesn't mean a listed artist can't be popular at the same time.

3. What are the criteria to be included on the list?

You will find the answer in the main journal of the TOP Artists Directory under paragraph How to be added?.

4. What happens if an artist is qualified in more than one category?

If an artist qualifies for different sub categories within the same main category they will be listed in the category that fits best.

If an artist qualifies for different main categories they will be listed in a separate category called "Multi-talented Artists" with short descriptions of their artistic orientations. This category is not yet released.

5. Can I suggest myself?

Yes. But please think carefully before you make your suggestion. It may cause negative feelings if you are not selected. For reasons why an artist may not be selected please see the main journal of the TOP Artists Directory.

We could prevent these hurtful situations by banning self-suggestions but we want to maintain the opportunity to gain recognition without the need to rely on someone else suggesting you.

6. Can I suggest someone else?

Yes. We encourage suggestions but please be aware of the criteria of the TOP Artists Directory.

7. Is the criteria used for assessment biased in any way?

Whilst the Top Artists Directory was initiated by only one person, a team is now in process of being formed with the aim of being more widely representative across DeviantART.

8. Will the list ever be complete?
