2 New Categories You Can’t Miss!

We are thrilled to announce the inclusion of two new categories into our upcoming call for entries titled “Details” and “100 Days of Summer”.

Opening in five days, our final 2019 call for entries will also include our classic repeating categories such as “Nothing Is Better Than Real Life” and “Photo Series” giving you a chance to explore a wide variety of themes within your photography.

Lastly, here are 3 things to remember as you pull your images together

  1. You can enter photos from any year
  2. Category definitions are soft guidelines, not rules.
  3. Submissions open September 20, 2019

Now it’s time to show us what you’ve been working on! As you know, we are obsessed with documentary family photography and can’t wait to give your work the recognition it deserves.

See you in five days!
