Must Read: Submission Guidelines (Update)

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 14, 2010, 2:07 AM

Hi Everyone,

As per agreed upon by the whole Admin Team, we have revised the quality guidelines of the Photos gallery. From today onwards, we will be following one single rule when accepting photos. A photo should inspire people to write.

Here's the excerpt of the discussion:

"All photos must follow this principle. "They should inspire people to write". Any photo that we will accept should make us feel that we can write something about it. We will decline photos that are merely showcasing the talent of the photographer (some examples would be breathtaking landscapes, portraits without a strong concept). We should be able to connect to it."

Here's an example from my gallery to further illustrate the guideline above.

This is okay: Bands by robkit

This is not okay: Museum of Islamic Art by robkit

This is okay: Genesis. by robkit

This is not okay: Spray. by robkit

We will be doing this so we won't stray away from the vision of our group which is to encourage collaborative work between poets and photographers by helping them provide ideas to each other.

Let us know if you have any comments or questions.

Thanks and have a good weekend.
The Admins.

Come outside the box.
