Photo submissions now CLOSED for 2019. Thank you for all the beautiful photos!
Would you like your photo or your child's photo on our Faces of Autism banner for 2019?
Every year we ask parents, caregivers, and people with autism to send in pictures to go on our banner. It's harder to relate to an autism stats like "1 in 48" (Economist, 2016). It's much easier to relate to the people who have autism when you see their beautiful faces on the banner every year! It's a reminder that the people are the reason we're on Parliament Hill, asking the Government of Canada for support throughout their lifespan.
There are TWO steps to submitting a photo.
Fill out the consent form below to give us permission to use your photo. Don't forget to click 'Submit'. THEN
Upload your photo.
Please note that your consent form is the only way we have of reaching you should we need to. Make sure your contact information is correct and that you click the SUBMIT button BEFORE you upload your photo. If we don't have your consent form, we can’t use your photo. If there is more than one person in the photo, we need their permission to be able to use it.
Step 1 - Consent Form
You must click submit on this form BEFORE you upload your photo below. All required fields must be filled out for the person to appear on the banner.
Please note that you must fill out and CLICK SUBMIT on the consent form above BEFORE you upload your photo (below).
Step 2 - Upload Photo
Please make sure that the file name of your photo matches the full name of the person whose photo you are submitting. Here are some guidelines/tips:
Please submit only photos that you own or have rights to use. (If you took the photo, you have the right to use it!)
Photos have to be a minimum of 600 pixels wide or high. Any less than this and the photo is going to show up too small on the banner and we want everyone to see every face well!
Try to send photos with just one person - or indicate consent to use the image is given by all in the photo. Photos with multiple people in them that we don't have consent from all parties cannot be used. We do our best to try to obtain a replacement image or the consent that is required, but if we can't do so in time we have to leave the photo out.
Bonus Step - Share this page!
The more photos we get, the better the autism community is represented! So, we want every Canadian with autism who wants to participate to be on the banner, regardless of age, where they live, or anything else. Every person with autism matters and that's what Autism on the Hill is all about.
Share this page with everyone you know throughout the year so we have piles and piles of photos to show!
