How to Submit...

Please use our submissions uploader, if this is not working then email submissions to  silhouettemag.vt@gmail.com.

 

Some Technical Stuff

All files must be named with the title of the work. For example, a photo titled "Rain" should be labeled "Rain."

We will not accept files labeled "untitled" or something similar to "DSC_0000."

 

Do not put your name on your submission (either in the document or in the file name). If you submit by email, include your contact information in the body of the email and make sure your file size does not exceed 2MB.

If you are submitting multiple pieces you should submit one piece at a time (i.e. one submission per piece).
