Terms and Conditions

Read these carefully: by submitting a photograph, you are agreeing to them.


You Should See This will not attempt to make money from YOUR work. Nor will it in the future – unless it is with your express permission and with prior agreement.

The Process

You can submit an original digital photograph to You Should See This by uploading it at, meeting all format, resolution or other requirements specified there.

When submitting your photograph, you will be required to provide:

  • Your name;
  • The location depicted in your photograph;
  • The time and date when your photograph was taken; and
  • A description of your photograph.

You must be:

  • Local to Banbury, United Kingdom; and
  • at least 18 years of age.

Both amateur and professional photographers are invited to participate.

We will use the email address you supply to contact you with information, including as to whether or not your photograph has been selected for inclusion. You should ensure that you check that email address regularly, and that it remains a valid address.

We may, in our discretion, require participants to confirm, by way of signature in writing, their agreement to matters referred to in these Submission Guidelines as a condition of their photograph’s inclusion in You Should See This.

Use of photographs

As well as appearing on the You Should See This website, submitted photographs may also be featured:

  • on the You Should See This site;
  • in the You Should See This printed publication
  • in emailed newsletters;
  • in press and other media releases; and
  • in social media postings and interactions,
  • in each case, only in relation to You Should See This

We may modify participating photographs for uses referred to in these Submission Guidelines, including (but not limited to) removal of “red-eye”, cropping, size changing, format conversion, detail enhancement and brightness enhancement.

We may add title and other descriptors of our choosing to participating photographs.

You grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use, reproduce, adapt, distribute, publish and communicate to the public any photograph you submit to You Should See This.

*We will NOT make money from your photographs without your express permission.

The first edition is a test, the cover fee from printed copies sold will cover the printing costs only. Any excess money made from this edition will go towards the cost of a potential second edition. If there is a second edition or subsequent editions, advertisers may be contacted in order to fund the inclusion of photographs, cover the costs of printing, website design and development and advertising of the magazine itself.

There is no intention from You Should See This to make money from the artists’ work. If this should change, the artist will be contacted and any renumeration will be discussed before an agreement is made.

Right to withdraw

If at any stage you wish to remove any or all of your photographs, please email
