In the natural world, photosynthesis is the process by which plants use light and chlorophyll to transform CO2 and other elements into energy for growth. Now, however, it is also the method by which The Boulder Stand collects and “synthesizes” your photos into one cohesive whole.
Drawing out the metaphor further, you’ll of course need some light to convert what you see through the viewfinder into visual “energy.”
Beginning this week, The Boulder Stand is inviting its readers to submit images to its twice-monthly Photosynthesis segment, formerly known as “Photo Roundup.”
The editors of Photosynthesis will propose a new theme for each round, and participants will have one week to submit their images. Editors will choose the top ten images each week, which will be published on The Boulder Stand and Photosynthesis webpages as a single photo essay.
Participants are asked to include standard photo captions and credits with each submission, and to submit no more than three images for each round of Photosynthesis. Please indicate if you would like to grant single-use or unlimited usage rights (always non-profit / non-commercial) to The Boulder Stand. The Photosynthesis theme will be announced every other Wednesday, and submissions will be accepted until midnight the following Sunday. Submit your images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the Photosynthesis themes do not interest you but you have other photo essay (or short film) ideas that would fit the focus of The Boulder Stand, then please contact us. We look forward to seeing the world through your lens!
