photo submission instructions
editor content by: editor
photo submission
We can only accept jpg or bmp images sent via email and cannot consider images that are sent any other way. Your image should be as large as possible, unless instructed to specifically crop it elsewhere (i.e. for a special project or competition). Images may be cropped by the editors. Emails must not be more than 10MB or they will be automatically returned. We'd also appreciate it if you could set the resolution of your image to 72 dots per inch.

We would like some background information about the image as well. Where is it? When was it taken? What does it mean to you? You can also write a review that relates to it, just remember to tell us in the email where it is if you do i.e. supply the URL to the review on Collective.

You should also include a link to your personal space in the email so that we can credit you. If you are yet to register on Collective then you can register now. We will accept submissions from non-registered users as well though.Before sending us a photo, please read the submission rules. If you need help with the technical aspects of submitting a photo read BBCi Webwise's guide to scans, cameras and pictures.
