New contest entries are posted once a week during the weekend.

Enter Photography Contest

1. Calculate character count

Our contest rules require that entries follow the word count guidelines for your division on the Rules page.

  1. Open this online character count calculator.

  2. In the word calculator page that opens, copy and paste your photo caption into the text box.

  3. At the top of the text box, the number after "Characters" is the word count for your entry form.

Irrespective of the character count from your word processor, if the character count from this tool is more than the number stated in the rules, please edit your caption before submitting. Entries with captions that exceed the character count limits may be disqualified.
