We are currently accepting your original photography for a number of our forthcoming titles. If you're a keen photographer, our challenge to you is to submit appropriate images that would suit the title of the book. We’re looking for photographs that are a pun on the subject of the book, for example, our book on Asterisk, the open source telephony system, uses an image of a carrier pigeon.
We will pay $100 for every image used and will credit the photographer in the book. We pay for photographs using PayPal. If you require payment to a bank account, you will absorb the relevant charges, which can be up to $50.
We will consider all quality and original photographs attached to an e-mail with the book title as the subject line and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send a thumbnail of the image first. If we are interested in the image we will ask you to send the full size image. Please keep any attachment under 5MB and only send one full size image in an e-mail. You can enter as many times as you want.
The technical details for all submitted images are as follows:
- Resolution: 300 dpi
- Size: Width more than 12" and Height more than 8"
- Mode: CMYK (Preferred)
- Format: JPEG, BMP, or TIFF
Images that don’t comply with the above format will not be considered.
We are currently looking for the following type of images:
> Inanimate/non living except nature images
> Detail oriented (eg architecture, machinery)
> Tilt shift Images
