Submit a photo encourages submission of original photos about all aspects of the Southern Crescent area. Why?

First, we believe photos taken by people across the South will tell stories in ways that words just can’t.  Documenting the Crescent through photographs will help people understand more about why the region needs attention.

Second, sharing photos will make what’s happening have more of a personal impact.

And third, it’s important to document some of the vanishing traditions and buildings of the Crescent region.
