CALLING ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS: Love Delaware? Love to take snap photos? Then grab those cameras; we’re seeking photo submissions that best depict life in our state. Send us your best shots and if we select your picture(s), they will be published on our website, and possibly in our magazine.

Multiple submissions are permitted; however, all photos must be of locations within Delaware state only.

Not sure what to send? Here are some quick pointers on what works and what doesn’t.

Good Images: Photos of downtowns; town landmarks; parks; scenic locations; events; old, historic photos; or other creative depictions of a particular locale.

Bad Images: Closeups of your friends and family; closeups of flowers, animals, or other elements of nature; images that have been heavily photoshopped.

Note: Photos with people can still be useable, as long as they are depicting a particular event or recognizable area in the state.
