What is UPI looking for?
While UPIU will accept any relevant images you wish to submit, in order to be considered for promotion to UPI, photos should adhere to the following standards: • Captions should explain the who, how, why, where of the image. • Captions should be no more than two or three short declarative sentences in present tense, with the first sentence saying what is going on in the image, the second sentence adding more detail. • The photo with caption should stand on its own without need for explanation. • To be considered by UPI’s photo staff, photos should ideally be between 2000 and 3000 pixels on the long end • Recommended compression is JPG Good or Excellent.
