IMDb does not allow the following:
  • Partial nudity (e.g. female nipples) regardless of context
  • Frontal pelvic nudity
  • Anuses (tasteful adult bottoms e.g. buttocks/cheeks are ok)
  • Prurient nudity (e.g. fondling, implied masturbation, or implied sexual contact between two or more people)
  • Sexually suggestive or prurient images containing children
  • Blatant prurient activity
  • Pornography, or images related to pornographic titles, whether they contain nudity or not
  • Realistic sex toys, sex toys in an erotic context, or implied use
  • Excessive gore. Yes, we allow frequent or intense realistic violence, but we have our limits.
  • Feces or urine
  • Real life death
  • Book or Magazine covers
  • Soundtrack covers
  • Paparazzi photos
  • >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Fan art<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  • Leaked images, 'revenge porn', or any images taken under the agreement/reasonable assumption that they would remain private.
  • Personal contact information
  • Any personal information about children under 13
  • Product or service advertisements
  • Images for which you do not own the copyright or have the necessary rights
  • Images displaying third-party ownership or branding, such as watermarks. Watermarks of the title's creators, such as the production company or TV channel, are acceptable.
  • Poor quality images. Please refer to the in-depth guidelines on this below.
  • Unnecessary quantities of very similar still images from the same scene.
  • Spoilers, e.g. an image revealing a major plot twist from later in the film, such as a dead main character.

Actual Art in galleries is still "Fan Art"
It is a fancier "Fan Art", no doubt!
Will sell for "Big $$$", to some "fan"
Same goes for art in magazines.
If it was not commissioned by the studio as a poster image, it is not acceptable.

Rubbish. My original art in art galleries is painted by me and not some fan of mine.

You are a fan of what you paint. Yes?
IE: Fan Art!

No, sometimes I hate what I paint. My art is original and not fan art. 

Fan art is artwork created by fans of a work of fiction and derived from a series character or other aspect of that work. As fan labor, fan art refers to artworks that are neither created nor (normally) commissioned or endorsed by the creators of the work from which the fan art derives.

Harrison: To help us understand your question better, do you have a name page (not just a user page) listed in IMDb already? Also, can you provide a link to the art feature as shown on the magazine's web site?

It's a printed magazine. And not on a website

Just giving an example of what I'm talking about. Andy Worhol made art and it was featured in a printed magazine.

Hi Harrison, 

Please can you confirm if the art has been officially commissioned by the studio of the title you are attempting to add it to? If you can provide us with a link to the title page we can look into this further for you. 

Thanks
Meredith

It was a magazine called function magazine. The artist made a series for them. They won't commissioned since it was one of those magazines where they have open submissions but the filmmaker had a Art series accepted into it

Harrison: My recommendation would be to enter the art feature in the Other Works section of the person's IMDb name page. See https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/biographical-data-guidelines/GMT9T242VQADZUQM#other for guidelines about this.

How would it be formatted. Because they didn't make a book. Their work is in on a page of a magazine

Harrison: Other Works is basically a free-text section of the database. You have to put the issue date of the magazine in parentheses at the start of the entry, as shown in the guidelines which I linked above. After that, you just have to indicate in some coherent manner what the item is (artwork, art feature, or however it would be described), what its title is, and what magazine it can be found in. I would include the page number, too.

Basically, make sure to give enough information that a librarian could find the item if they were looking for it.

wouldn't it be best for it to be in pictorials since their work is being featured in a printed magazine?

Harrison: I don't think so. The Pictorials section of IMDb is intended to be for "something that appears in a magazine or journal and consists primarily of photographs of the person in question".  See https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/biographical-data-guidelines/GMT9T242VQADZUQM#pictorials.

The feature would only qualify as a Pictorial for IMDb if the artist is a photographer and the feature consists of photos that the artist took of themselves.

Photos that the artist took of other subjects, or any other types of art (paintings, drawings, etc.), would not qualify as a Pictorial.
