Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the upload form? I can’t find it.
There are 13 different image submission forms, each one corresponding to a different photograph in the exhibition. On the Oh Snap! Homepage, select the image to which you wish to respond and use the form located at the bottom of the object page to upload your photograph.
I submitted a photography X days ago and haven’t heard from you. What’s going on?
When you successfully submit an image, you will receive an automated email letting you know that we received your submission and it has entered our production queue. We are experiencing a high number of submissions and are currently operating with a 1 to 2 week turnaround time. We’ll notify you via email when your photograph is hung in the gallery and posted to the web.
I submitted several photos, but only received one notification about my work being hung in the gallery. Did I miss something?
Participants will receive one email notification when their first work is hung in the gallery. Due to bulk email and CAN-SPAM laws, we are not able to send repeat notifications to a single email address.
I can’t come to the museum to see my photo in the gallery. Can you take a picture and email it to me?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of submissions, we can not fulfill this request.
I’m a teacher and I’d love to get my students involved in the project. They’re under 18 years of age, however. How can we participate?
The current Terms and Conditions state that participants must be at least 18 years of age and must have taken the photograph themselves.
Students and teachers can engage with this photographic project in other interesting ways. For example:
- Invite students to compare the original photographs with the public’s photographic responses. Think about subject, character, landscape, composition, color, mood—whatever interests them. In what ways do they think people were inspired by the original? Which photographs do they think are most successful? What do they see that makes them say that?
- Do any of the photographs remind them of photos they have taken? Invite students to bring in examples from home that have similar elements to one or more of the 13 photographs. Share with the class and discuss the range of ways you can make connections among these images.
- If possible, invite students to take new photographs around their school, homes, or neighborhoods that are inspired by the subject, composition, mood, etc., of the original photographs. Share with the class and discuss the different ways it is possible to make those connections.
We are learning a lot from this project. We would love to know in what ways you’ve used this project with your students. If you are interested in discussing your ideas for how to engage with this project or ones like it in the future, please email Becky Gaugler.
I submitted a photo, but have reconsidered. How can I have it removed from the gallery and the website?
Email us a link to the image and we’ll remove it ASAP.
