Photography

If you are looking to submit  a photograph, please follow the following guidelines:

  • The book will be 7.5 inches wide by 9.25 inches high, so a portrait orientation work will fit into the book better than landscape. However, we will accept both. But we recommend portrait. 
  • If using mobile phone, set camera setting to highest resolution and submit the original/largest file size/highest resolution version NOT the smallest size.
  • If using digital camera, set to at least 300 dpi or higher resolution setting. Submit the original/300 dpi resolution version.
