Columns Magazine UW Foundation Spread – Out and About Photo Submission Guidelines

The basics:

  • When saving/downloading pictures from your digital camera, please select the highest resolution/largest file size available. For you technical folks, 300 dpi is most-preferred.
  • Email photos for consideration to Abigail Klingbeil.
  • You know your donors best. If you have a picture of someone who might have sensitivities about being featured in a magazine that is distributed to 250,000 people, please don’t submit it.

Please submit photos featuring:

  • People of diverse ethnicities and ages
  • People engaging with each other
  • Bright or well-lit surroundings
  • Students
  • Up to five people in a group (additional people in the background are fine)

Please avoid photos featuring:

  • People drinking or eating
  • People wearing nametags (where possible…we know this might be hard to avoid!)
  • Big groups of people (more than six)
  • Primarily staff in photos

  • Each person’s name, Advance number and graduation year, if applicable
