Goals & Guidelines



People are visual beings. Before there were words there were images. This powerful tool is hard wired into our brains. Your photographs are doing more than documenting a moment, they explore emotions, expose reality, and unveil hidden beauty.

What’s your focus? Submit a series of photographs to share with the community. Include a few words to explain your work. Use Resolution as a platform to present the issues you are passionate about. Reveal the world others too often ignore. Get people moving, engaged in the dialogue. Let the Resolution Studio community support your vision.

Shoot. Show. Share Your Story.
