Helpful Hints

 

·         The photo has a vertical placement on the cover. A horizontal photo may lose some important features when cropped to fit.

 

·         Be mindful of the cover photo from the previous year. For example, if last year’s cover featured a photo of the Seward Boat Harbor, it is unlikely a similar photo will be selected the next year.
