Photograph Selection Process

Due to the large volume of images we receive, and the limitation of space available in our magazine, we cannot guarantee that your photograph will
be published and/or appear on this site.

Our selection process places precedence on:

• Composition

• Unique viewpoint

• Subject matter

• Image quality and clarity

• Image size – the bigger the better

• Relevance to a particular issue and/or theme

We are not always able to inform you whether your photograph has been selected for publication, but we do always credit the photographs we use within Bragg Logo and this website.

Get out, enjoy, and... remember your camera!
