What You Need
1) A camera
2) A place to upload your photos, like a weblog, or a homepage somewhere.
NOTE: Photo Friday does not accept picture uploads.
How It Works
Check the Photo Friday website each Friday for the week's Challenge - or better yet, sign up for email notices and we'll send you a reminder.
We pick a Challenge theme or subject, and your job is to take pictures interpreting it. When you're done, upload your picture(s) to your site, then enter your picture link on the Photo Friday website.
Friday is the day we post the Challenge, but you can enter your link on Photo Friday whenever you like. It doesn't have to be on Friday!
If you already have the perfect image in your archive that suits the Challenge, go ahead and submit your link to it, or take a new picture - it's your choice.
About Your Links
Your submitted link must be to a static page
that will always show your image or images for the particular Challenge, and not
to your website's main page. Doing this makes it easier for visitors to find your image related to that week's Challenge.
If you link to a page and we cannot find an image on that page that relates to the Challenge your link will be deleted.
On a weblog, they're often called the 'Permalink' or 'Individual Entry Archive' pages. They're the pages that correspond to an individual post in your weblog. Sometimes it's linked to the date of your post.
Please read this
for more detail.
Or something like that; your site may have a different structure from this example.
One Link Per Challenge
Please only submit one link per challenge
, even if you have several photos for the week's Challenge. If you need your link changed for whatever reason, contact us
and we'll change it.
Additional links to the same site, even when pointing to different images or pages, may be deleted. When additional links to the same site are found, our practice is to delete the newer link(s).
What The...?! My Link Disappeared!
Fear not! We only remove links for very good reasons, some of which are explained on this page. Since we don't collect your email address when you submit your link, we have no real way to contact you if we find there's been a problem with your link. Contact us
and ask what happened.
By far the most common reason for removing a link is that it's not pointing to a static page as described above.
We reserve the right to modify or delete any link, or the text associated with any link, for any reason, without notice.
