How to Submit a Photo

Submitting a photo is easy!

1. Select your best photograph of the South Country area during the summer, and email it to For this photo contest, we are limiting everyone to
one photo submission per person.

2. With your photo please include:
- Your name
- Your city/town
- A sentence or two telling us about your photo

There is no need to resize your images before you send them to us. Please submit your photos in as large a pixel size as possible.

A word about copyright: By sending us your photographs, you are in no way giving us any rights to do anything with your photographs other than to display them here on We will not give anyone else any rights to your photographs nor will we use them in any other way without your permission.

However, you should understand that the internet, relatively speaking, is still the "Wild West" when it comes to maintaining control over your work. We've already had several instances of people copying material from and using it on their own websites. They removed the material when we politely pointed out to them that they can't do that, but the point is that you have to keep an eye out for abuses of the copyright rules. For this reason, can not be responsible for what other people do and how they use material they copy without permission from

We have recently changed so that you are unable to "right-click" on any image on the site to copy or save it on your own computer. We hope that this will prevent most instances where someone would try to copy an image from However, like we said above, if someone REALLY wants to copy an image from the internet, there is almost always a way to do so. No method of prevention is 100% fool-proof.

You should only submit photos if you understand and agree to the above. If you have any questions about any of this, we'd be glad to discuss them with you.
