Find out about requirements for your images before submitting to the award.

We accept photos of any format – film camera, digital camera or cell phone, in landscape, portrait or square. Please make sure that each one is .jpg format, and less than 8mb in size. We recommend around 2500px longest dimension. We’ll of course ask for bigger images if you’re chosen as an exhibitor.

For re-sizing your images, we recommend learning an editing software package like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP, although we also find to be effective and very simple to use.

Don’t worry about naming your images – they’ll be automatically linked to your account and the theme when you submit them. If you would like to add titles or descriptions please include them in the description box on the upload page.

We accept images old and new – It doesn’t matter when they were taken. You may submit the same images to multiple themes and also to you Series Award entry.
