Do I have to pay to have my photos published?
No. Submitting your photos to be included in our calendar is absolutely free. You'll never be required to make a payment.
Will I be paid for my photos?
You will not be paid royalties for your photos. However, you will receive a free electronic copy of the calendar once it has been published and a lifetime 10% discount to our site (applies to all of our products).
How many photos can I submit?
You may submit a maximum of three photos.
Do the photos need to have been taken in 2019?
No, you may submit photos that you took at any time.
How do I know if my submission went through?
Within minutes after submitting, you should receive a confirmation email, sent to the address you marked on the submission form. If you receive the confirmation email, you can be assured your submission went through.
The website is telling me that my file is too large to submit. What should I do?
If this happens, try clearing your cache and then submitting again. Oftentimes, a full cache and your history can confuse the form into thinking your file is bigger than it actually is.
If after clearing your cache the submission still won't go through, please send your submissions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include in your email your bio (if wanted), your photos, your full name, and the following statement: I, (insert your full legal name here), have read and agree to The Blissful Birder's policies as found on their website: https://www.theblissfulbirder.com.
What should I include in my short biography?
Anything you'd like. If you'd like to promote your website or blog, be sure to include those links. If you'd like our customers to be able to contact you, you may include your email as well. Examples of great bios can be read here: https://insights.bookbub.com/great-author-bio-examples/
