Calling all parents! We're looking for photos to feature in next year's 2005 Halloween Costume Gallery on BHG.com. If you'd like us to consider a photo of your child wearing a homemade Halloween costume, please read the Visitor Submission Agreement below, and if you consent to the terms, e-mail a photo of your child wearing the homemade Halloween costume, with a short description of how it was made. Include only your child's first name, age, city, and state in which you live, to: CostumeCall@bhg.com. If your photo is selected, we will notify you via e-mail.
To send us a photo, you'll need a digital version of the image on your computer. If you have a digital camera, follow the manufacturer's instructions for transferring your photos to your computer. Be sure to make a note of where the digital files are being saved on your computer so you can find them later. It's also a good idea to review your photos and jot down the file name of the best image before you start the upload process.
You can easily obtain digital versions of photos taken with a film camera. Most photo finishing services offer the option of putting your photos on computer CD disks when you have film developed. The disk you receive will include software for viewing and saving the photos to your computer. Another option is to scan a print of your photo; if you don't have a scanner, many copy shops will scan the photo for you and put it on a computer disk.

Meredith's receipt and review of your Material does not prevent Meredith from developing or publishing any similar work. Nor does Meredith become an agent or fiduciary of yours relative to the Material. In addition, if Meredith elects to publish all or part of any submitted Material, you agree to assign any and all copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights to Meredith without additional compensation.
