Have a question? Hopefully we have answered it below, if not, get in touch with us.

  • Why does this cost money?

    Great question! We created the STF Awards in 2012 for of the sheer love of photography, and to allow you to gain exposure and feedback on your work. The community is self-sustaining, but only because we charge for STF submissions, as well as Pro and Premium STF memberships. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to keep the lights on. If you can afford to become a Pro or Premium member, it goes a long way to helping us stay sustainable - it also unlocks some pretty sweet features, which we will continue to improve. 😀

    If you can’t afford the Pro or Premium membership, the Basic membership option is completely free.

  • Do I need a STF membership to submit photos into STF Awards?

    Yes. At the very least, you need to be a Basic STF member to submit entires into the STF Awards.

  • What are the prizes for the STF Awards?

    You can read all about the STF Awards prizes and our amazing partners here.

  • How do I submit a photo into the STF Awards?

    There are two ways of doing this. Firstly, you can submit a photo during the uploading process, it is the optional last step.

    Secondly, you can submit a previouly uploaded photo by selecting it from your profile, and hitting the ‘Submit Photo’ button.

  • Can I use my STF submissions across the 3 STF Awards categories?

    Sure can. For example, if you purchase 7 STF submissions for this month, you can submit 1 photo into Shoot The Face, 3 photos into Shoot The Land and 3 photos into Shoot The Wild, totalling 7 submissions for the month.

  • Do I need a STF membership to receive feedback and critiques on my photos?

    Yes. At the very least, you need to be a Basic member to give and receive critiques and feedback. Pro and Premium members are able to see more detail on critiques which they have received from the community.

  • Can I upload as many photos as I like?

    Basic members can upload 3 photos per day, Pro and Premium members can upload an unlimited amount photos, although we encourage everyone to share only their best work to keep the community clean and beautiful.

  • Do my STF submissions expire?

    They do. All purchased or available STF submissions expire at the end of each month. This is the case for Basic, Pro and Premium members. If you are a Premium member, your available STF submissions will reset to 7 at the start of every month.

  • Whats the difference between daily uploads, and STF submissions?

    Daily uploads refers to the amount of photo a member can upload to the STF community on a daily basis.

    Basic members have a daily upload limit of 3 photos, meaning they can only upload 3 photos to the STF community everyday. Pro and Premium members are able to upload an unlimited amount of photos to the STF community everyday.

    STF submissions allow you to submit photos into the STF Awards. One STF submission allows you to submit one photo within the current month.

    If you are a Basic member and you have purchased STF submissions, we will increase your daily upload limit to accommodate the STF submissions available.

  • I’m a Basic member, what happens to daily upoads limit if I purchase STF submissions?

    Basic members have a daily upload limit of 3, however when a Basic member purchases STF submissions, their daily photo upload limit will increase to accomodate the number of STF submissions available, so you can get all of your STF submissions in on the same day.

  • Can I submit photos which I uploaded to Shoot The Frame a long time ago?

    Yes. You can submit any photo which you have in your profile, as long as it has not already been a STF Awards finalist, or winner. You can also submit a photo into the STF Awards during the upload process.

  • Can I resubmit a photo into the STF Awards?

    Yes. You can resubmit a photo as many times as you like, as long as it has not already been a STF Awards finalist, or winner. Once it has a STF finalist or STF winner badge on it, it cannot be resubmitted.

  • I have some feedback for Shoot The Frame, where do I send it?

    Amazing, we love hearing your feedback. Please fill out this form, we read every one. We are creating this community for you, so tell us what you need.

  • Can I cancel my subscription?

    You can. You are able to cancel at any time, and the next scheduled payment will not be taken. You will not be refunded for any time remaining on the membership.
