JHL is your journal, and we want to feature your photos!
Journal of Human Lactation’s (JHL) cover changed in 2012 – and is about to change again! The basic layout will stay the same, but they plan to replace the 4 cover photos with new ones, for the February-November 2013 issues.
The 4 photos portray the broad field of human lactation, from the IBCLC helping new mothers (such as images of the caring professional with a breastfeeding mom; teaching a class, etc) along with the harder science of lactation (picture: test tubes of milk; microscope slides, etc).
Please send us your photos! We are looking for images representing a range of backgrounds, contexts, and cultures, and we do need ‘hard science’ photos as well as those from the clinical scene.
- Keep photo clear with minimal background interference.
- Photos should be jpeg files: 300 ppi .jpg; at least 2100 pixels wide x 1500 pixels high
- Email photos to: email@example.com
- We may not be able to respond to each message separately, but as confirmation of your submission, you should receive an auto-response message.
- Include your name (assuming you are the photographer) and full contact information with preferably a second email address.
- Deadline is November 10 2012. NO EXCEPTIONS!
- If a recognizable person features in the photo (ie, face of mother/baby/clinician etc), you must have a photo consent form. If your photo is a contender for publication, we will require subjects to sign a specific consent form, so only send photos if you know you can obtain permission from the subject.
- As the photographer, you will need to sign non-exclusive copyright – in other words, you allow JHL to use the photo, but you are free to use it elsewhere as you choose.
- If we believe the photo is a potential winner, we will contact you again before the deadline to talk to you and ensure we have the correct forms.
I miss the previous covers of breastfeeding as depicted in art. While the intent to portray the lactation field and IBCLCs at work is commendable, the 4 photos are too small to make much of an impact. Why not have one larger photo on each cover, and change them each month?
