Submit Photos


Legend Awards Competition Rules:

Images will be awarded based on the following criteria: strong composition, emotional impact, creative storytelling and personality.

We want the viewer to feel like they know the couple when they view the image. We want to feel the emotion and clearly identify the amazing story of your couple. All eloping couples are accepted: LGBTQIA and polyamorous unities, people of every size, religion, ethnicity, ability or disability, and those who don’t conform to tradition or expectations are celebrated here. All elopements with 15 or fewer people qualify. No, you don’t need a fancy, extreme or outdoorsy landscape to win a Legend award.
