There is a new page coming

18 September 2015

There is a new page coming to the Church Times: Focus, featuring the best photos from parishes sent in by readers.

•  Images can be emailed to focus@churchtimes.co.uk, but please send the pictures as attachments or in Dropbox, WeTransfer (or similar), i.e. not embedded in the text of emails.

•  They must be reasonably high-res: 1-3MB is ideal (though we can cope with smaller, say 400KB).

•  You must obtain permission from the parents of any children shown in a photo.

•  If you think it’s a newsy photo, we need it quickly. (We might then hold on to it for a while, but who said life was fair?)

•  If there’s a story involved, give us the facts and anything colourful about it — though remember: this will be for a caption, not a long story.

•  We will favour photos that tell a story, but we’re always susceptible to something with a visual impact.

•  We like to credit every photo, so we need the photographer’s name. Also the names of the people who appear in the photo (within reason — not if it’s the whole congregation).

•  We also need contact details, ideally a mobile-phone number, in order to check things.

•  Line-ups: however interesting the people, lining them up doesn’t make the most interesting photo.

•  Time in the CT office is always short; so links to online galleries of scores of photos might not get the attention they deserve. Better for you to select three or four of the best shots.
