I did :D I waited for months dreaming of getting a DD, then one day I realized that if I wanted something to happen I had to make it happen myself. So I suggested one of my tutorials and I got a DD for it :D after that I got three more DD suggested by other people.

I think a DD is sadly not always about how good you are, but about how popular you are. Not everyone knows how to suggest a DD, then of those that know few people actually suggest DDs regularly, so it takes a lot of views, watchers and luck to get that first DD. I found that suggesting myself gave me that initial boost of exposure I needed, so I'm glad I did. I think there's nothing wrong with it, you're not featuring yourself, you're merely suggesting yourself for someone else's consideration.

However, I would like to point out, if anyone wants to do suggest their works, it is fine to do so :nod: It's just a personal preference for me (like for a few others who commented here). :)

Once, but it seems like eons ago. I have no need to do it again, but it is sometimes necessary for others to do it. :) They have to get recognized somehow.

i've always been thankful for the journal features i've gotten, i can't imagine suggesting myself for DD. i can understand why some people would, but i have a problem with some of the DD's picked simply bc of quality; how could i ever suggest my own work when i only have a point and shoot and there's soooo much better, more deserving pieces out there? :shrug: lol

I'm just a beginner in Photography and even my poems and prose are just a beginners work, so no, I wouldn't vote myself for a DD.

If I had anything that I thought was DD material, then yes. I think part of being an artist is marketing yourself. No one will find you if your just sitting in the corner.

I did that once, but never got an answer or a DD. I did it just to find out if my work could be good enough, even though I still don't think my work is as good as the DD's I see everyday :-)

I haven't ever suggested myself for a DD, but that's because I just don't believe what I have is suitable for a DD.

To be honest though, I find nothing wrong with suggesting yourself, the only flaw I see with it is that it potentially wouldn't feel as great, because it isn't praise coming from another person.

No I haven't and as far as I know no one has suggested any of my stuff either. I have suggested some other people's work but none of it ever got a DD.

I did it on my old account for a photograph of one of my models, formerly titled "Abduction" and now "Nostalgia" in my new gallery, and it was successful. Since then I haven't been successful in suggesting any of my own work nor of anyone else but once, and so I gave up on it. I might try again in the future when I'm more confident in my skills whether it's my own photography or judging another's.

Even if I am often suggesting DDs, especially traditional works, I could never suggest one of mine. :) The works that I suggest are not even close to the ones I make, and I could never be so satisfied with mine as to think they might deserve a DD.

Just speaking of DDs - I so miss the "reasons" or "reasonings" for DDs... not all of them have them anymore :(
