Calling all photographers!

We are looking for a photo to use as a backdrop for our next Friday Night Lecture Series with Karl Marlantes. This presentation will draw parallels between his novel Deep River and the Kalevala epic. For this lecture, we are looking for forest scenes and landscapes. Don't miss the opportunity to share your work with the rest of the Nordic Northwest community! See our guidelines and submit your image below.

What we are looking for:

Nordic Northwest is looking for top quality content. Please read the following carefully. We ask that you please submit the following content:

  • JPG, JPEG or PNG files only, up to 25MB

  • Horizontal photos (1920 x 1080 resolution is preferred) ​

  • Because this photo will be used as a visual background, try to avoid photos that are busy with elements - keep it simple and as natural as possible.

  • Make sure there are no trademarks, watermarks, or logos are visible.

Common questions:

  • Do I need to be a professional photographer to submit my photo?
    • Not at all! We encourage anyone with a love for photography to submit their photos.​
  • How many photos can I send?
    • At this time we are asking that we only receive 1 photo per submission.​
  • Can I send a photo I already have? 
    • Of course! You can send us older or newer photos, just as long as you are the one who took the photo. ​
  • ​What happens if Nordic Northwest chooses my photo?
    • ​We will notify you that we are interested in using your photo. It will then be added to our content library and will be used on our website, social media, and e-news. 
  • What happens if Nordic Northwest does not choose my photo?​

    • Photos that are not selected will remain yours. We will not use your photo in any way. ​​
