Q & A
Q. What sort of photos should I send?
A. Chances are, if you have a picture you have shown all your friends you have a picture which could make the newspapers. Obviously there is a huge market for celebrity pictures but pictures of breaking news stories, quirky pictures and pictures that just make you laugh. Here are a few pointers:-

SHOWBIZ - When it comes to celebrities the best pictures are exclusive, recent pictures of 'A' list celebrities going about their daily lives.

BREAKING NEWS - Citizen journalists fill more of the national papers every year. Nearly every recent major news event has been covered with pictures and video from mobile phones and compact cameras. The key here is speed - the first good picture sent to a newspaper is almost always the one which
gets used.

WEATHER - British people and British newspapers love to talk about the weather, the more extreme the better. If you have been flooded, snowed in, blown away or baked to a crisp you may well be in a position to get photo fame and reward.

QUIRKY - The best pictures are the ones that amuse, amaze or take your breath away. If you are so pleased with a picture you have emailed it to all your friends, chances are it will make newspaper fame.
