This category is for photo essays that capture a compelling, relatable, and raw aspect of family life, childhood, or parenthood.

Your documentary photo essay should have a unique point of view and theme that unifies the photographs. Please make sure to describe your concept in the submission. 

We look for:

  • 8 - 15 photographs, GIFs, or, possibly, short compelling videos in a submission
  • Professional quality images 
  • The images are beautiful without drastic editing, filters, or manipulation.  
  • We are not looking for family portraits or similar staged arrangements. 
  • Each photo must be at least 3000 px wide at 72 DPI 

What will the photo essay look like?

Your images will be displayed in a single column, with little or no text. If you would like to submit a description, we may publish it along with the piece.

Each photo will include a copyright with your name.
