Wanted: Toronto Photo Essays

Toronto is a photography city; there's no debating that. We host the largest annual photography festival in the world, we have a very active community of hobbyists, and it's truly a rarity to be out and about and not stumble upon a shooter or two (or more).

The blogTO Flickr group is nearing an impressive 3000 members strong, and is an integral part of the interactive nature and community building that are so important to us. And there are a lot of awesome photos being taken that are worth showing off.

With that in mind, we want to extend the invitation for our Flickr pool members to have their fabulous photographs featured in all their glory on the pages of blogTO.

What we're looking for:
- photo essays can be made up of as few as 5 photos
- essay topics have no limits other than that they be compelling, timely, and related to Toronto and surrounding areas
- we're NOT looking for photos of events that happened last week or last year, but we would be interested in photos of an event that happened very recently, or any themed photo sets that aren't time-sensitive (examples: here and here and here).
- photo essays rely mostly on images, but a short description should be included to set the stage (about 100 words will do)
- this is an open call, so there are no deadlines

How to submit:
- create a Flickr set* for your essay
- submit it to us using the contribute page
- please include:
1) your essay title
2) your short description (100 words or less)
3) the URL of your essay set on Flickr

Submissions will be reviewed and the best will be published by the blogTO editorial team.

This is an opportunity for the blogTO readers who are creative and talented photographers to challenge themselves in the area of themed photo essays, and share their work with a larger audience (including the non-shutterbugs that don't use Flickr).

blogTO looks forward to featuring your photo essays!

*If you don't use Flickr and still would like to submit, please get in touch by emailing: editors [at] blogto [dotcom]
