  • If you have a photo that is a good representation of some aspect of CAP, but you don't have an article, go ahead and send it and it may be used as a stock photo. Scenic photos as well as action photos! 

  • If you're able to capture people doing activities, more than just the "Grip & Grin" of award ceremonies, they make much more interesting copy. 

  • Eye-catching photos really are worth a thousand words!
