We also use action photographs of winners with the results of that competition. Remember, complete identification of the subjects in these photos is a necessity.

In addition, we urge you to send us shots that are unique, tell a story, are beautiful or funny, or just happen to catch someone at a special moment. We accept color  prints and digital images at a resolution of 300 dpi.
