Welcome to Photoborg.org

What It Is
Photoborg publishes one or two pictures every weekday in one of several categories: Personal Meaning, Pets, Kids, Personal Best, Personal Favorite, Forgotten Cameras, Found Photo, and Historical Find. All the categories are explained under the "Submit a Picture!" tab on the main page (on the upper right).

Who Can Submit a Picture
Anyone can submit an entry. Whether you're a full-time professional or a beginner on your first day with a new camera, whether you're a kid or a grandparent, you're welcome. People anywhere in the world are welcome. We encourage submissions from non-photographers, too. If there's a picture you love or that has special meaning for you, and that you think other people would enjoy too, we'd like to hear about it.

What It's For
The internet is full of places that talk about cameras and photo equipment and techniques, and we have no problem with that. There are also a lot of places where people post scads of their own pictures, often with little editing and minimal or no explanation of what the picture shows or what it means to the person who took it. Photoborg is simply a place to see a few photographs that matter or have meaning to people, and find out why.
