Welcome to the 2018 calendar photography submission page! I'm so excited you are here and want to tell you a little more information on this contest. If you're looking to submit a photo for the 2018 calendar, please read on!
What Brim is looking for:
- high resolution, 300 dpi photos (in other words, high quality enough to be blown up to 10"x10" and still be sharp as a tack) iPhone photos can absolutely work, so long as they are high resolution. This works best when they were shot in HDR mode.
- photos that fit the Brim Papery aesthetic. Take a look at the previous calendars' photos shown above to get an idea. Themes should include nature, tablescapes, shots of warm and cozy home scenes, plants, etc.; people are absolutely ok to be included in photos but typically should be a small portion of the photo and not the main subject. (There may be some exceptions here depending on the photo)
- Brim is looking for photos from all seasons, so please feel free to include a few options if you have ones that pertain particularly to spring, winter, fall, summer.
- You don't have to be a professional photographer to submit a photo. If you're photo fits the bill above, feel free to give it a shot! All are welcome.
- You are welcome to submit several photos - it's possible I make pick multiple from one photographer if I'm really in love!
Winners will receive:
- $50 per photo used
- Complimentary 2018 Brim Papery calendar
- Your name and instagram handle on the back of the calendar
- Promotion of your photography to an Instagram audience of 24k+
How to enter:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the title line SUBMISSION
- Include your name and Instagram handle. If you have specific photos you'd like me to consider, please attach them - please do not insert them directly into your email unless they are scaled down to a viewable size. If you're more comfortable just sending me your IG feed for me to look through, that's ok, too! If for time's sake you'd like to include a smaller version or screen shot of the photos, that's fine with me so long as you have a high-res version!
