TIPS FOR SUBMISSION
For cover considerations we always like to see an outdoor recreation shot that also has some scenic background representing a REGION. A general guideline we are looking for in an activity photo is to capture people in a motivating way that stimulates emotion and connects a viewer to the image, encouraging them to take part and try this wonderful activity or scenic shot that you just captured. Basically make people say “I want to TRY THAT or GO THERE!”
Good luck and we’ll see you out there!
