Circle of Light Photo Project: The Fine Print

  • While not required, participants are asked to enroll in the program prior to submitting photos. This merely allows us to assign you a photographer number so that we may better track your submissions. Registering also lets you receive project updates and links to online classes (which will only be sent during the length of this project). Your information will not be used for any other purpose outside this project.
  • Each photo must be accompanied by a short paragraph of why you chose that subject, what it means to you and how it differs from your pre-transplant vision. This is where you get to elaborate on the story your photograph captures.
  • Each participant is limited to a total of 5 photo submissions. If you'd like to substitute a new photo for one already submitted, call the Public & Professional Relations Department at 1-800-444-7479 or via email to [email protected]. You may do this up until the deadline date.
  • Photos of identifiable persons MUST have a photo release form signed by the person in the photo or a guardian if under age 18. Signed forms should be emailed to the address above or scanned and emailed to [email protected].
  • Photos may be electronic or prints.
  • Electronic photos should have a high resolution (at least 300 dpi)
