How To: Submitting Photos To IllinoisHunter.com
Please submit your original photos (as email attachments) to firstname.lastname@example.org
In your email, please include your name, address, and phone number along with a brief factual description of the image. (Date, place, wildlife species, etc.) A photographic credit will be published for each photo that is selected for display. By submitting your photos, you are certifying that you are the photographer who took the photo, and that IllinoisHunter.com and other related SportingDomains sites have your permission to display the photo(s) on our web sites without payment or any other obligation on our part. Please understand that we may not publish all submitted photos. Photographers selected for "Featured Photographer" status will be provided with individual photo galleries and links to their own web sites.
Please understand that IllinoisHunter.com is a hunting site, and therefore our photo gallery mixes images of general nature scenes with photos of direct hunting activities, including images of hunters with their kills. The harvest of game animals and birds is part of the hunting process, as is the preparing of game for the table as food. Hunters enjoy the full spectrum of outdoor activities; this includes wildlife conservation activities and wildlife photography, as well as actual hunting which involves the harvesting of game, and we offer no apologies. That being said, there are other hunting-oriented web sites that include photo galleries that are more focused on the hunting trophies of adult hunters, including prairiestateoutdoors.com and iloutdoornews.com. We are happy to refer your trophy photos to these sites for greater exposure, especially if we cannot use the trophy photo in a news context. However, "trophy" photos that are especially newsworthy or depict successful youth and young adult hunters are always welcome in the photo galleries at IllinoisHunter.com.
