Fine Print

The content of the Photo Annual is made up of member submissions. Only images submitted by the members in response to a call for submissions will be considered.

All Professional Members (previously called General Members) of the ASMP NY chapter are eligible to submit. Each eligible member may submit one and only one image for consideration. There is no theme or guideline on image content. Members should submit their best work suitable for the audience of art directors and art buyers.

An independent juror/curator will pick 100 images from among all the submissions, based solely on his or her professional judgment. To prevent any bias or preferential treatment, no ASMP NY chapter member, nor anyone involved in the production of the Photo Annual, will have influence over which images are chosen.

The independent juror/curator will work with a designated designer to arrange the images in the final print layout. The Photo Annual will be produced in a 9″x12″ hardcover format. The design team will not crop images without consulting the photographer. Images may be displayed single page, as spread, or across the gutter at the designer’s discretion. Each image will be credited with the name of the photographer and a URL linking to the photographer’s website.

If feasible, we will distribute an electronic proof copy to all selected photographers to check for errors in layout or credit. Creative feedback on layout will be considered at the designer’s discretion.

In addition to the design of the print layout, the juror/curator and designer may chose one image for a cover or dust jacket at their discretion. Along with the 100 selected images, the Photo Annual will contain an introduction, acknowledgement of the sponsors and underwriters of the Photo Annual, and acknowledgement of contributions in making the Photo Annual a reality.

The ASMP NY chapter reserves the right to negotiate with appropriate sponsors on placement of sponsor messages. The cost of the Photo Annual is covered 100% by sponsors underwriting the printing and other production expenses.
