Articles should be accompanied whenever possible with strong story-related photographic images. They should be in focus, well lit and clearly show a person, group of people or scene that is relevant to the article. Infographics and other illustrations are also welcome, as is video.
Photographs should be submitted as email attachments and NOT via dropbox or similar download or file-sharing services.
Image files should be in jpg, png or tiff format and must be at least 800px x 450px @ 240dpi. Ideally they should be at least 1920px x 1080px @ 350dpi. Send original, uncompressed images if possible: we will crop to the correct aspect ratio and compress the files to appropriate sizes for web and/or print publication.
If you are submitting photographs that you have not taken yourself, you must confirm that the copyright holder has given permission for their use. Such images must be accompanied by appropriate use permission, license and origin information, such a link to a web page which clearly indicates these usage rights and which will allow Exeter Observer to appropriately credit the copyright holder.
Images of children under sixteen can only normally be used with the consent of their parent or guardian. If in doubt, do not submit such images.
Please get in touch if you would like to submit infographics, maps or video to discuss file formats etc.
