 allows ratings
Description:
Garage doors for autos with some kind of artwork over all or part of them or garage doors which form a part of a much larger piece of art located at commercial businesses or private property (please be respectful of private property). Garage doors containing random graffiti spraypainted on them do not qualify.

Art can be either two or three dimensional.
Expanded Description:
Any type of garage door for autos at a commercial place of business or a private residence that has original art work on it (please be respectful of private property). Standard decals and commercial decorations (logos, business name), and garage doors containing random spraypainted graffiti do not qualify. The key word here is, "art!"

*UPDATE 9/11/2017* The emphasis for submissions into this category is focused primarily on garage doors for storing automobiles. If you locate an artistically-painted door that doesn't quite fit into this category's theme, then please contact one of the officers before submitting your waymark for guidance and they may review your submission on a case-by-case basis.

Instructions for Posting a Garage Door Art Waymark:
1. The emphasis for submissions into this category is focused primarily on garage doors for storing automobiles. If you locate an artistically-painted door that doesn't quite fit into this category's theme, then please contact one of the officers before submitting your waymark for guidance and they may review your submission on a case-by-case basis.

2. Coordinates must be personally obtained by a physical visit to the location. The coordinates should be taken as close to the garage door as possible! If the coordinates are from a viewing point, please indicate this in your long description and describe the viewing point and approximate distance from the garage door.

3. TWO PHOTOS ARE REQUIRED for each waymark. One should show the entire garage so we can see the building in its surrounding environment, and the other should be a CLOSE-UP showing the detail of the art work. Additional photos to show more detail or other views are encouraged.

Since this is an VISUAL ART category, the quality of your photos is important. Waymarks with low quality photos that are inadequate in any way to display the art may be declined.

4. DESCRIPTION: Give a description of the art work -- its subject matter, media used, type of building, location, etc.

5. WAYMARK NAME -- must include a short descriptive title followed by the name of the town and state (or country) in which it is located.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.
