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, share it on Instagram and Tweet it! 

How do I send a photo in to be edited?
To submit a photo, please complete the submission form.

Due to the high volume of submissions, it may take up to a month to receive a response from our editing team. If you haven’t heard from our editing team within a month from submitting your photo, please check your spam folder, as for some people, our emails get sent automatically into this section of your emails.

Photo Campaign FAQs

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?
We currently allow one photo submission per form. To allow for all families the opportunity to be featured, we ask that only one photo is submitted per child.
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 yet been released, 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 Kim.

I have more questions…
We understand! Please feel free to email our Photo Campaign Manager, Kim. She will be able to answer any other questions or concerns that you may have.

Again, thank you for sharing your photos with us!
