Photographers - We're Counting On You!

As a photographer participating in Stories of Autism Awareness project you'll be asked to create a portrait of a person in your community with an autism spectrum disorder. This may be an incredible challenge, even for those experienced and familiar with autism spectrum disorders. You will have complete creative freedom with your subject provided they are agreeable to your ideas. It's your creativity and unique vision that we are looking forward to including in the Stories of Autism project. Of course, you're welcome to photograph as many subjects as you'd like!

Photographers are required to apply and receive an invitation to participate in the Stories of Autism Project. Our goal is to continually raise the level of artistry and create a core collection of images worthy of exhibit in any of the world's finest galleries. Selection is based based on artistic merit, creativity, and the ability to tell a story in a single frame at the discretion of the Stories of Autism board of directors. If you have images other than those on your website you'd like to submit for review please refer us to a location where they can be viewed or send watermarked JPEGs to

All photographers will retain the copyright and usage rights of their portraits. You can post them on your website, use them for your online or hard copy portfolios, for marketing purposes, or anyway you would use a photograph from any of your client sessions. We are just requiring that Stories of Autism be able to use the portraits in the same way for its own philanthropic causes. Photographers will be credited for their work and will have links to their websites on the Stories of Autism website.
