Hey, everyone. Lately, we've been having some issues with submissions.
Again, I don't mean to call out any specific person, since it's not just one person who's been doing this. I've been trying to tell people which folders things belong in when they get mixed up, but it's still been happening a lot, and we've even been getting an occasional straight-up color photo submitted here.
So, just to be clear...Black & White:
The Black & White folder is for photos that are pure gray-scale
. There should be no
tints of color of any sort. If there is any
hint of color whatsoever, it does not belong in this folder.
This is an example of black & white photography. They should look like this.Sepia:
The Sepia folder is for photos that have a brownish/yellowish tint to them.
This is a good example of a sepia photo. If it looks like this, it belongs in the Sepia folder. Do not submit regular black & white photos to this folder, or sepia photos to any other folder.Color Splash:
Color splash means that only part
of the photo is in color. The rest is black or gray-scale. It does not mean that the entire photo
is in color.
This is a good example of color splash. This is what should be submitted to this folder.Other Monochrome Photos:
This folder is for pictures that do not cleanly fit into any other folder, but are still monochrome
. They should still primarily use a single tint/shade.
This is an "other monochrome photo." It has color on it, but it is entirely blue. Photos similar to this should go here. This folder is also not for regular colored photos.
Finally, this is a colored photo:
Photos like this do not belong in this group and should not be submitted here. They will be declined.
Also, please do not submit to incorrect folders in an attempt to get around the three-per-week limit. Three per every folder per week gives you a hypothetical total of twelve per week, which is a decent amount. If I feel like photos are being deliberately submitted incorrectly for this reason, they will also be declined.
I hope this clears things up for everyone.
