Photo essays should have 4-8 photos and a maximum 1,000 words text. Images and photographs accompanying submissions should be supplied with the highest quality, with a minimum of 300 dpi, in JPG or TIFF format. A/V formats will primarily be hosted via embedded YouTube or audio player. Total time should not exceed 30 minutes for one essay.
