  • dotPhoto often presents holiday photos: we encourage holiday-themed photos!
  • Please submit only one photo at a time.
  • Unless they are extraordinary in some way, black-and-white images will not be presented.
  • dotPhoto reserves the right to select or reject any photo for publication on its home page for any reason.
  • dotPhoto may crop your photo to ensure that it presents well on the front page.
