• Photojournalism captures the people, buildings, gathering places, natural surroundings and overall character of a community.

• Great photos generally have a spontaneous, authentic quality, capturing a moment in time — a human expression, the play of light, a fleeting dynamic. Something about them is eye-catching.

• We encourage you to think in terms of a "photo essay" – multiple images drawing on the same subject or with a connecting theme. For the Community Journalism Project, we are especially excited to see images that capture your own community.

• For the purposes of this project, please avoid photos taken inside schools or other buildings, or on private property. They cannot be considered, due to privacy concerns. If taking photos of people, remember to get their permission (and get their names with correct spelling if you're going to use them in a photo essay.)
