You can submit photos to be reviewed for possible inclusion in an online library for the Church and Church members. The photos may be used in Church magazines, brochures, posters, blogs, videos, web sites and member's blogs, lessons, web sites, videos, and other media.

Only submit photos you would like to allow the Church and Church members to use for the above types of purposes. You will still retain the copyright for the photos and will be able to use and sell your photos, but the Church and Church members will be allowed to use them as well.

4. Send an e-mail with your full name, Flickr screen name, and primary e-mail address to so that we will have another e-mail address on file besides your Flickrmail address.

Note: Not all photos will be selected. If your photos are not selected, feel free to try again and submit a different selection of photos.

Please don't submit:
* Photos that are not appropriate for Church use.
* Photos that you have not taken. Submit only those photos that you own and hold the copyright for.
* Photos that contain credit lines.
