If you would like to have your work included in the next GBUK Journal, then please read this carefully. We would like you to send one image only to, but as before, all other required information will need to be submitted using the online submission form below.

Photo requirement:
• JPEG format.
• As high quality as possible – minimum pixel dimensions approx 1200×1200 pixels. There is no maximum. The non-scaled size it comes off the camera is great.

If you are adjusting your images using a photo editor, please save them as high quality. If your photo is not suitable, you will be advised in due course.

Your photo must be named in the following format:
< your name >–< name of bead >.< extension >

So, for example, a jpeg photo of Fred Blogg’s bead called “Good Blue thing” would be named Fred Bloggs-Good Blue thing.jpg

People using on a Mac to send their pics: make sure it isn’t auto-resizing images. You need to look in the lower right corner of the new email window where you will see a popup menu allowing you to select small, medium, large, or actual size image sizes. Choose actual size.
Outlook sometimes does this too.
