  • Submit by May 31, 2014.

In 400-500 words answer one of the following questions:

  • Aww, man! You just HAD to be there! Tell us about a favorite photo and the story behind it. Why is it memorable? What did it capture? (Remember: We can’t see that photo, so make it come alive with your words.)
  • Share a moment you wish you had a photograph to remember. What would that picture have captured? Take us back through time and frame it for us.
