  3.  Note which column or feature you’re submitting for, and if the material has been published previously.
  4. Save your stamps! We cannot return materials, so please send good quality prints of photos. Our small staff can’t acknowledge receipt of materials, nor offer status reports on them, but we will notify you if your submission is published.
