Featured photos for our homepage - call for submissions

August 04, 2008  •  Leave a Comment

Featured photoblog-homepage We are looking for submissions of photographs that can be featured on the front page.


For the next two weeks we are asking you to send us links to photos that you feel should be featured. Our creative staff will review the submissions, pick 20 candidates, and will post them for further voting. The top ten photos that receive the most votes will be featured on the front page (given owners’ permissions, of course).

Photos featured on the front page usually get a lot of views and clicks to the owner’s galleries so it is a great way to get good publicity.

Submission guidelines

1. ORIGINALITY. The photographs should be dramatic, original, and unique. They should make people stop, stare, and want to explore more work by the author.  Yes, you can submit your own photos, if you’d like.

2. HORIZONTAL ORIENTATION. Photos need to have horizontal orientation with an approximate aspect ratio of 6 x 4. This is due to the layout of our main page where vertical or square images will not work well.

3. ZENNY. We like images that play well with the overall design of our Web site. Subjects on white background work especially well. Black and white photography is always welcome. Also, images with orange, and blue colors compliment our color palette.

4. APPROPRIATE. We are looking for a variety of content. Portraits, nature, wildlife, pets, studio work, objects – anything goes! However, it goes without saying that the content should be appropriate for our front page.

How to send us your proposals:

1. Find the photograph that you like on Zenfolio

2. Click the Send Link button located in the top-right section of the screen

3. Copy the address of the photograph and paste it in the reply to this forum post. It would be preferred if you can include a brief explanation of your pick.
