Which Square should a photo be submitted to

For which square should a photo be submitted?

If you are new to the site, please have a look at our guideExternal link first which should help you get started. The information below gives guidance for those unsure of which square to submit to.
If the subject is marked on the map then use that position - this can be confirmed by GPS position but take the map as more definitive. If at all possible specify positions to at least 6 figures.

Both subject and photographer position can be input as a grid reference, or can be set by dragging icons on the map shown during submission.


Closeup Shots

Photos of buildings etc...


Wider angle shots such as fields and woodlands


Macro shots of stones, flowers etc


Wide Angle Views

Wide angle shots that cover a wide area, depicting a prominent feature but not including any foreground detail



Wide angle shots that don't have a prominent feature, including panoramas


Wide angle shots that include foreground detail
(even if a 'prominent' subject is visible)


Telephoto shots

Telephoto shots of a distant location


'Geograph' images should be all about getting into the square and taking shots of the features within the square. Wide angle views are useful as supplementals but not as geographs.
