1. Must be a Winter Garden resident. We are a Winter Garden publication, and we want to amplify Winter Garden voices. All our contributors either live or work in Winter Garden proper.
2. Must be willing to have your first name and photo published. We believe showing real local faces and voices is vital to bringing the community together. As part of our process, we ask that users submit a head-and-shoulders photo of themselves to run at the end of the story, and to at least submit their first name and last initial.
3. Must be responsive and timely. Many of our submission categories require us to schedule an interview and/or professional photo shoot before they are ready to publish. If your submission is chosen and we send a message to the email you provide, we allow 48 hours for a response before we must move on to the next submission.
