Submit photos

We want your photos

We want to see Virginia Commonwealth University through your eyes! Submit your photos to the official VCU Flickr group and share your experience. VCU Creative Services will then choose photos to feature in VCU in Pictures.

Who can send their photos?

Anyone – including VCU students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends – can submit photos. Simply become a member of the VCU Flickr group to send in your best pics of anything and everything VCU.

How are photos selected?

Every two weeks, we will select photos to feature in the “Your photos” gallery in VCU in Pictures. We’ll be looking for images that have a strong composition, interesting angles, dramatic lighting and compelling use of color, among other qualities. Most importantly, we’ll be looking for photos that capture the VCU spirit of yesterday and today.

How should photos be submitted?

Photos should be submitted through the VCU Flickr group. If you are not a member of Flickr, you’ll need to create an account. Once you’ve completed that step, simply visit the VCU Flickr group page and click the “Join this Group” link.
