1. What are the terms of agreement to use submit a photo?
Please take a moment to read our terms of agreement below. These are the rules we all have to play by. As defined in the agreement, we reserve the right to remove photos of those who post banned material, copyright infringement, or do not follow the rules of conduct as posted here, in our terms of agreement and throughout the website.
2. How do I send a photo to the gallery?
Just click on the hyperlinks on this website - or send us the photo and a caption in an email to: email@example.com
Make sure your photo is either in JPG or TIFF format (for you graphics types, please have it in RGB and not CMYK format). Your photo/graphics editing program will have these settings for you.
3. What will be posted to the gallery?
Pretty well anything (with the exceptions listed in the next question, below). Your photos, or photos with the photographer's permission. Remember, your mother might see your gallery submission online: make her feel proud!
4. What will NOT be posted to the gallery?
(a) Copyrighted material. Real simple: if you did not take the photo, or get the photographers permission, or if you did not create the artwork yourself, or get the original artist's permission, please do not post it to the gallery.
(b) Porn. No explanation needed – this is a family website.
5. What format/resolution should the photo be in?
Good quality photos make all the difference. We have supplied you with three templates to choose from to get the size and resolution just right:
\ In the end make sure your photos have at least 300 dpi and are at least 3.25" wide X 2.75" tall).
8. How do I upload the photo?
Just send us an email, we'll do the rest.
9. How long will the image stay on the gallery?
We will be hosting photos for approximately 12 months.
10. How do you pick a photo for the labels?
Like the Colonel’s chicken recipe, it’s a secret process. Here are some hints: send us your best photo of what it means to you or your group to have fun – while eating sauerkraut. And then make sure you tell us what we’re looking at – in two sentences or less.
11. Should I send photos in color or black and white?
Color sells: make your shots money! You can learn a lot from the previously selected photos. For example, you may notice that
12. How will I know if my photo is selected?
We will email the contact address for each photo. Please make sure your contact email address is up to date and correct.
Please do not contact us to ask if your photo was chosen, if we’ve received your photo, or what your chances of winning are. As you can imagine, we receive thousands of photos and emails and unfortunately we cannot respond to all of these inquiries
14. If my photo gets chosen for a label... do you send me a can? Can I purchase a case? Where will I be able to find it???
Unfortunately we really can't send you a can with your label on it. We will tell you when it’s running – and advise that you check your local retailer – that carries Snowfloss Sauerkraut – for your appearance. If you can’t find Frank’s in your area, let your grocer know that you’re interested in our product. It might help to have your friends keep an eye out as well!
15. How long does it take for a photo to be chosen for the labels?
We pick photos for the labels a few select times a year. It is a great honor to be chosen for the label and we take this selection process very seriously. So it takes some time.
16. Are there winning tips from winning photographers?
Yes, and the best is to ask the photographers directly.
Here's a big technical hint to start. Two things: format and resolution. Look at the label, it is in "landscape" mode (wider than it is tall) so try to reformat your photos if your originals are in "portrait" mode (taller than they are wide). Second thing, we cannot print files with less than 200 or 288 dpi. Feel free to submit them to the website, but do not be surprised if we cannot print them.
