SEND US YOUR PHOTO

By submitting your photo, you agree to allow KnoxKoupons and Printech Promotions Inc. a release and publication rights to your submitted photo without compensation on our website.

====================================================

How many pictures may I submit?
You may submit as many photos as you like, but e-mail them one at a time (i.e., only one picture attached to each e-mail submission).

I'm having problems using the "Send Us Your Photo" Link. Is there another way to e-mail my photo?
If your Web browser is not "connected" to an e-mail program, you will get an error message when you click "Send Us Your Photo." You can still send your photo directly to KnoxPhotos the same way you would address any other e-mail message. Just attach your photo and make sure you include your name and address. By submitting your e-mail entry, you are agreeing to and submitting a photo release allowing Printech Inc. and KnoxKoupons the right to publish your photo without compensation

Will my photo be returned?
No. Photos cannot be returned.

Do I retain the rights to my photo after it is submitted?
Yes, as the photographer of the photo, you retain the copyright of your photo. By submitting your photograph, you are agreeing to a photo release that grants us the rights to publish it.

Is there a deadline for Snapshot submissions?
This is not a contest. You can send in photos anytime for consideration for publication. Remember, not all photos submitted will be selected.

Will my photo submission "expire" if it's not chosen the same week I send it? Should I submit it again?
No. Submissions do not "expire." There's no need to resubmit. If your photo is chosen you will be contacted.

Am I required to write a caption for my photo?
Please feel free to write a caption when you submit your photo. (Subject to editing)
If you prefer, we will write the caption for you, but you will need to provide us with enough information about the photo to enable us to do it. Subject, location, historical info, etc.
Don't forget to include it in your e-mail.

Is there a way to send my photo without using e-mail? Can several photos be sent in one envelope, or is one per mailing required?
Mailed entries should be addressed to:

Printech, Inc./KnoxPhotos
1549 Fox Hollow Trail
Knoxville, TN 37923

If you are sending several photos, we prefer you send all of your entries in one envelope -- just make sure that each photo has your name, address, and telephone number on the back.

4x6, 5x7, 8x10 are all good print sizes. Please don't send anything larger than these and remember your photos will not be returned so send us duplicates only.

How big can my photo be?
Most photos taken with digital cameras will be 1-2 megabytes. Please do not send a photo that is larger than 4 megabytes, as these will clog our systems. Use your computer to reduce the size of your image or make a printout and send it by postal mail.

I use an online photo service. Can I just send you a link to my photo?
No. Because of the volume of mail we receive, you must send us the actual image file, not a link or other type of file. JPEG (.jpg) files are the preferred format. Other formats may not be readable. If an image file is not readable, it will not be considered.

Can I send you my PowerPoint (or Microsoft Word) document?
No. Images embedded in other files such as Word documents or PowerPoint documents will not be considered. Use the help feature of your program to help you get the images out.

Should I "stuff" or "zip" my file?
No. If your file is the proper size (less than 4 megabytes) and the recommended format (JPEG) then there is no need for additional compression.

What happens if my photo is selected?
It will be featured on our photo tour of Knoxville with a page of its own, along with your credit as the photographer and your e-mailed description of the picture. (Subject to editing)

How will I know if my photo is chosen?
You'll be contacted by e-mail if your photo is being used along with the location of the page where you can see it on the site.

Will I be paid if my photo is selected for publication?
No, your participation is voluntary, but we will enter your name in our "Night on the Town Getaway". The winner will be chosen in a random drawing from those submitting pictures for consideration.

Is there any past time limit as to when the photo was taken?
No. As long as you are the one who took the photo, you may enter it.

I have a photo that has been published before. May I submit it?
Yes, you may submit photos that have been published before, but you must be the photographer.

I used a photo software program (such as Photoshop) to alter my picture. Is it OK to submit it for consideration?
Yes, it is OK to submit altered photos.
