You are responsible for your own captions. A good caption is thorough and succinct, and should answer the questions: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. We recommend that captions follow AP-style captioning guidelines. For example, a good caption should look something like this:


Los Angeles, CA - A woman walks her dog through Griffith Park.


Captions should be as specific as possible while simultaneously informing the viewer of situational information that may not be immediately apparent by merely looking at the image. Your caption should not be a paragraph in length. Your caption should be limited to one or two well-written sentences, and should not include vague or artistic language, the names of the people or pets present, personally identifying information such as phone numbers, your photographer credit, or personal opinions about the subject matter.
