Bring us your photos!

We’re always open for Picture of the Day and Instagram of the Day submissions! Here’s how to get involved.

Remember the days when we all left photography to the photographers? We’ve been all, “MOVE OVER photographers, because we’ve got cameras on our phones and we are not afraid to use them!”

Well, MOVE BACK OVER THIS WAY, photographers, because often your talented eye is sorely lacking in this 2015 sea of duck-face selfies and latte pics. If you’ve got a great sense of photopriety, colorification, and perspectus (or whatever it is that makes photos awesome, we’re not photographers), we would love to see your submissions for Picture of the Day!

Who can submit?

Literally any taker of a photo.

What can be submitted?

Photos at least 1200 px wide, preferably landscape-oriented (that is, horizontal, not necessarily a photo OF an actual landscape), and Richmond-related (although we accept and even encourage that specification to be applied liberally). Oh, and the photos should be of above-average goodness.

What do you do with Picture of the Day?

Why, it lives on the home page of RVANews dot com of course! For one whole day! And we promote it via Facebook and Twitter.

How do I submit?

Just join our Flickr group and stick the photo there! OR, email it to Or, tag it on Instagram with #rvanews, but…

Instagram of the Day!

…we also choose an Instagram of the Day, which is usually featured in Good Morning, RVA, our daily newsletter that is as essential to some as a good brush of the teeth. If you tag your ‘gram with #rvanews, we’re more likely to use the photo for Instagram of the Day than we are for Picture of the Day.

But that’s still cool, guys!

Do you credit me?

Yes, duh. We’re not monsters.
