LFTC is open to join once more. To be accepted you must have a high standard of work and must agree to stick to the submission guidelines. Submissions are accepted automatically as long as the work submitted is up to standard. Our goal is to create a vast collection of inspirational urban photography. I will be updating various aspects of the group this week.


P.S We're still looking for a few co-founders to help out so send me a PM if interested.

Why am I blocked?
If you have been blocked then you have most likely broken our submission guidelines. For more info to appeal send a PM to the group or :iconzuarr:.

The groups guidelines as far as submissions are concerned are as follows:

-No pornographic artwork
-1 submission(s) per week max
-Do not resubmit an image if declined (unless advised otherwise by a staff member)
-When we're looking through submissions, we're looking for well composed images, we may decline if the composition isn't great
-Images should be of reasonable quality and resolution
-Make sure you submit to the correct galleries (see below)
-Photographs must be city-related
-We will generally reject any HDR images which we deem to be 'over-processed'.

If your artwork gets declined then feel free to ask why and we will usually gladly give you an explanation. However, we do reserve the right to decline an image without giving a reason.

Which gallery do I submit to?

If in doubt, look at the other works submitted into a gallery. If you can find a gallery with lots of similar stuff then give that a shot.

Cityscapes - Urban landscapes, a view of a large part or a whole city.

Street - Candid photographs of people on the street (not people living on the street!), up close and personal . Generally these photographs will be of a specific person. No homeless people! (see photojournalism!)

City Life - Similar to street photography but takes into account the environment and all of the people in that space, not just one.

Photojournalism - Anything which you might find in a newspaper or on the TV. Examples include homeless people, riots, event photography and so on. Must be in an URBAN ENVIRONMENT!

People - People in urban areas - the person should be the main focus. These images are not necessarily candid and can some times be out of context.

Long Exposure - Where a long exposure (shutter speed) has been used, often capturing streaks of light, flares and ghostly figures.

Architecture - Structures, indoor and outdoor. The building or part of it is the main focus.

Black and White - City/Urban/Street photography in black and white. Sometimes a black and white photo may want to be put in a different gallery if it is definitive of that genre. If so, feel free to submit it outside of this folder.

Transport - Vehicles in urban areas, the vehicle being the sole focus

Misc. - This collection has been recently removed. If your images don't fall into the above categories send us a note or don't submit them.

Happy submitting!
