Submission deadline extended by 48 hours

We have heard from a number of photographers over the weekend, concerned about their ability to submit by today’s deadline. For many of you, this weekend has been a time to focus on your family and the traditions you celebrate. We hear you!!

The submission deadline has now been extended by 48 hours to April 15, 2020.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in submissions so far! We are absolutely thrilled to pass your images along to our panel of guest judges in preparation for the live-stream judging in May.

We hope you have had a restful weekend, with people you love, be it virtually or in person.

Stay well and be safe.
