Photo Campaign



Interested in our photo campaign?  


What is the photo campaign?

We are asking for photos of loved ones who have Down syndrome. We are trying to spread awareness for our loved ones by sending messages to the world with captions on photos that you send in.

You can help us create a caption, or we will help create one for you! Our editors will put the caption on the photo for you.

Then we will post it to Facebook, publish it here, pin it to Pinterest, and Tweet it! 

If you are interested in being a part of this campaign, simply send a photo, to our editing team at connections@theidsc.org.

How do I send a photo in to be edited?

You simply email us a photo to connections@theidsc.org
If you send a message to our Facebook page – we may not get it. So to ensure we do, please send to the email above.

One of our editors will contact you shortly after you send in your photo to discuss verbiage for your photo and for you to sign our release form.

If you haven’t heard from us in a timely manner, please check your spam folder, as for some people, our emails get sent automatically into this section of your emails.

Please make sure your photo is a clear shot or we may ask for another. Also if you send in a photo with a professional water mark, we will need the photographer’s permission to use the photo, so 
please ask them in advance to make sure it is okay to use.

How will my photo be used?

We post your photo on our Facebook page, our Pinterest page, our website and we Tweet it!

What if I don’t like the finished photo edit?

Our editors will work with you on your photo edit, we will never post without your final approval of the photo. If there is something you do not like, or you want changed, please let your editor know! We want to make sure your words are expressed as you want them. 

I sent in a photo and never heard from anyone…

Due to the high volume of photos we receive, it may take us 4 to 6 weeks to respond to your submission.

We receive many photos a day and our editors work closely on each edit to make sure they are the best they can be, which can take time.

Please check your spam folder in your email. Sometimes our emails get automatically sent into that folder.

If you have done all of the above, please send us a private message stating that you have sent a photo with no reply – leave us your email so we can try to find it for you. Or just resend your photo again. Sometimes emails get sent to our spam as well.

We appreciate your patience!

How many photos can I send in?

In your initial email to us, you can send as many as you want – in one email. This helps our editors to choose a photo that would best fit a quote or sentiment for you.

However after we have done an edit, we ask that you do not send any others, so that all families get a chance to be featured.

There are often times we do a ‘shout-out’ – where we ask for different themed photos. We have asked for teacher themed photos, Hero themed photos, Christmas photos, etc. You, absolutely, may send in another photo for those themed weeks!

Can I share my photo edit with my friends/family?

Once we have posted your photo on our Facebook page, we welcome you to share share share! But we ask that you please do not release the edit until after we do,

Thank you for understanding.

Do you release all the photos that have been approved? / Why hasn’t my edit been released yet?

We do our very best to get all of our photo edits released.

If yours has not been released yet, please feel free to email us and ask! Sometimes photos get lost in transition! We would be happy to find it and then release it for you!

I would like to volunteer to edit photos for IDSC. How can I become a volunteer?

We would love the help! If you are interested in volunteering with our Photo Campaign, please contact Melanie at idsc.melanie@gmail.com.

I have more questions…

We understand! Please feel free to email our Photo Campaign Manager, Melanie at:  IDSC.Melanie@gmail.com

She will be able to answer any other questions or concerns that you may have.

Again, thank you for sharing your photos with us!
