Tell your story with a photo
BetterGulf.org encourages submission of new original photos about all aspects of the Gulf oil spill. Why?
First, we believe photos taken by people across the South about the spill, cleanup and devastating impacts will tell stories in ways that words just can’t.
Second, sharing photos will make what’s happening have more of a personal impact.
And third, it’s important to document the spill’s impact on people’s lives.
Submit your photos today
Send photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send photos that are at least 800 pixels wide. (Note: We’re using a gmail address so it won’t clog our server.)
Provide information: When you send photos, please include some information about the photo — what it shows, where it was taken, when it was taken, etc.
