Submission Guidelines

Terms and Conditions – Please Read Carefully

  1. With each photograph, or series of photographs, you must supply a written component describing how it relates to “life as a human”. If you like, feel free to share the process of taking the image, and anything else you’d like to share about it, as long as the description explains how the images allows us to explore and understand our human experience. Share what the photograph means, or should mean to others.
  2. Let us know what equipment you used. If you can’t remember, just say, I can’t remember.
  3. Photos can be any size up to 1500KB (1.5MB). If they are any larger the system won’t take them. Photos may be adjusted to fit.  
  4. Please name your photos before uploading them (or enter a title in the Title Field under each image entered in the form). Please don’t send DSC_1234.jpg.
