Photo contest

If you have ever taken an incredible photo that you think could be in National Geographic?

Well, we’re not exactly National Geographic, but close enough. Submit to the Souvenirs photo contest for a chance to be on the front page cover of Souvenirs’ spring print issue!

How this works: Submit your photos by March 1 here. On March 3, we will announce the 10 best photos to be voted on for the front cover. These semi-finalist photos will be posted on the Souvenirs Facebook page, where “likes” will count as votes. We encourage you to like the page and share the post to increase your chances of winning. Voting will close after one week (on March 10). The Souvenirs creative team will pick from the top three photos with the most likes for the front cover. The winner will be announced March 12 via Facebook.

If you do not win, don’t fret: we will include the top contending photos in the magazine as well, just not on the cover.

Rules: Any photo(s) submitted must be your own. If you have participated for the contest before, please do not enter photos you have submitted in the past. Photos must be taken on an actual camera, not on a phone. Phone photos will automatically be disqualified from being considered for the front cover. (You can, however, submit phone photos for the inside of the magazine, they will just be smaller sized, as quality decreases for bigger photos taken on phones.)

All photos must be in JPG, PNG or TIFF format – TIFF format is preferred for highest quality. All photos must have an image quality of 300dpi with CMYK coloring.

Please include a list of the locations where the photos were taken.

Deadline to submit photos: March 1

Where to submit: www.wudpublications.submittable.com
