Simply share your picture with an inspirational write-up (below) to go with it. Note: I will ask you to upload the photo last, OK :-)

We'd love to hear EVERYTHING about your picture:

  • The occasion,
  • The date,
  • How you felt,
  • Who was there with you,
  • What you went through,
  • What was good and what was not,
  • The highlights, the memories, recommendations etc.

Get the idea?

Great! :-)

In short, just tell us the whole story behind your picture. (

We require at least 150 words, but the sky is the limit

Here is an example of a previous photo entry.

Humble Suggestion: Write & save your write-up in Notepad, Microsoft Word or any text editor first. That way, if there is a technical glitch, you won't have to rewrite it.

REMEMBER A write-up has to go with the picture; unfortunately, we'll have to reject entries with little or no information about the picture. If you encounter any issues submitting, please don't hesitate to contact me.
