  • Photo essays:

Photography News accepts both narrative and thematic photo essays. The narrative essay tells a story through a sequence of events or actions, following an individual, community or activity over a period of time and present this story in chronological order. A thematic photo essay focuses on a central theme (e.g. homelessness, poverty, etc.) and presents photos relevant to that theme.
