Submit your photos now for the Junebug Weddings BEST OF THE BEST 2012 Photo Collection!
At Junebug Weddings we are wildly, madly, head-over-heels in love with photography, and we're passionate about supporting artists who set trends rather than follow them. As former wedding photographers, we're dedicated to educating couples and the wedding industry about the extraordinary skill, talent and hard work required to create truly amazing wedding photography.
With that in mind, we're calling on you to help us create our fifth annual Best of the Best Photo Collection, an exclusive showcase of 50 outstanding wedding images chosen for their technical skill, artistic brilliance and distinctive style. This year's anxiously awaited collection will be viewed by tens of thousands of couples, photographers, wedding professionals and editors, so bring it on and show it off!
Submit Your Images: Please visit www.junebugweddings.com/best-of-2012/submission.aspx to send us your very best wedding photos from the past 12 months - the ones that make you stop and stare, laugh, smile and breathe-deep - the ones that make you thrilled to be a wedding photographer.
Image Sizes: Please send up to 12 .jpg images that are 1,000 pixels on their longest side, without watermarks, taken between December 2011 and December 2012. Images should be placed in a .zip file that is no larger than 10MB.
Subjects: Photographs should be from weddings or wedding related photo shoots of real couples who are your clients. (Engagement photos will not be accepted this year, and no photos of models, or images from styled shoots, workshops or commercial shoots, please. If you have questions about eligibility, please read our Official Rules or write to email@example.com for more clarification).
Submission Dates: Photos will be accepted from 12:01 am Pacific Time, Thursday, November 1st, 2012, until 11:59 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012.
Processing Fee: A processing fee of $25 per photographer (or $18 for Junebug member photographers) will be charged for submissions of up to 12 images. As the Best of the Best has grown in popularity, so have the logistical demands needed to organize and promote this exclusive collection. We hope you'll understand this need.
Exposure: If your photo/s are chosen, your copyright - including your name and business name - will be prominently displayed as part of our Best of the Best 2012 photo collection, and will be part of Junebug's marketing campaign to educate the world about the phenomenal art of wedding photography. The Best of the Best is one of the most popular wedding photography contests in the world, so you can expect your exposure to be extensive.
Thank you for participating! We can't wait to see what you'll send!
