FAQs - Annual Gathering Book Photos

Can I submit multiple photos? 

Yes!  You may submit as many photos as you'd like, however you must complete one photo submission form for each entry so we're able to write a caption and give proper credit for each photo selected.  If you have an online photo album from a particular project that enables us to download your photos (e.g. Flickr) and you would like to submit the entire album, you may do so by copy/pasting the link into the Notes/Other field of the form.

Why do I have to fill out a separate form for each photo? 

Allowing one photo per form helps keep uploading times reasonable for you.  It also helps to ensure that adequate  information for each photo is available to the LCMC staff when designing and writing captions for the book. 

How will I know whether or not you've received my photos? 

After submitting your photos through our website, you will be redirected to a new page with a message that your photos have been uploaded successfully. 

What if I have trouble submitting my photos?

If you have trouble submitting your photos, first double check the name of the photo and the file type.  Images with a .jpg or .jpeg extension are best (please do not upload MS Word, PowerPoint or Publisher files).  It may also be helpful to try naming your photo something short and simple, as opposed to a long, complicated name with a lot of spaces or special characters, as these types of file names may cause issues uploading.  If you're still having trouble submitting photos, you may submit via email by clicking here.

Can I receive a copy of the book?

You bet!  Printed copies of the book will be available at the Annual Gathering on a first come, first serve basis.  Once the book has been published, digital copies will be available for download here and for viewing in our mobile app.

What types of photos are you looking for? 

We're looking for photos that depict LCMC-ers being "in mission for Christ".  A few examples of this might be service projects, outreach events/activities/programs, mission trips, creative/artistic projects, disaster relief projects, or church planting efforts. 

Will I be notified if my photos are selected?

Due to the high volumes of photos that we receive, we are unable to personally contact each and every person to let them know if their photos have been selected.  Of course you might be curious, so be sure to check out our Annual Gathering Books page in October to download a digital copy of the book. 

Who should I contact if I have any questions regarding my photos?

For photo-related questions, please contact Kristy Thomas, Communications and Public Relations Specialist for LCMC, via email at kristy@lcmc.net
