Calling all Photo Love Participants

Matilda Jane Photo Love

We’re going to do it a little different this year.  It’s going to be split into 3 rounds so let’s get the ball rolling tonight till Jan 13.

Round ONE: Initiation, October 9 – October 31
We will be accepting submissions starting tonight through October 31.
Send one photo size 520×640 (520 is the width) to  The subject line must include your state and name you do business under, example Utah Little Bundles. Your email must also include your full address and size of dress you would like if you are selected for Round Two. This is the only qualification necessary for Round ONE: Initiation. If any of the above is missing, your submission will not be accepted.
If you are selected to be on our list, we do require you to also link Matilda Jane on your blog or website.

Round TWO: Photo Love,  November 5 – December 5
Matilda Jane will choose 50 photographers to send an outfit to. The lucky 50 will photograph it in any manner they choose.
Your outfit will be mailed to you on November 5th in the size stated in your original email. You will have until December 5 to photograph the outfit and submit your photo.  Please email the photo in a high resolution (any size) file, and a file 520 width x 640 to by December 5.  Photos received after December 5th will not be considered.
The home office will narrow it down to 10 photographers.  We will base our decision on design and execution as well as the ability to tell a story and spark an emotion in the judges. The top 10 will all receive a $100 gift card to Matilda Jane.

Round Three: The Final Three, mid December
We will post our Top 10 on the Matilda Jane website in December (date to be announced) for the public to vote. The top Three will be chosen by the public and the home office will pick the Finalist.

The Final One- This very talented gal or guy will receive an all-expense paid trip for 2 to Matilda Jane to view the Spring Line in January as well as some other pretty cool stuff.

Is a photography business required to participate?

Vanessa Bullock - October 16, 2012 - 12:37 pm

Kinda makes me want to learn my way around a camera…. lol

Teanna - October 10, 2012 - 10:47 pm

So you must have a photography business to enter or can you just enter if you photograph your own children and family?

Erin Reardon - October 10, 2012 - 10:36 pm

Can the photo be of a woman … or does it have to be a child?

Denise - October 10, 2012 - 5:28 pm

Submissions form any country are welcomed. And no, your first photo does not have to showcase MJC (though we do love MJC)

Hey Ladies!! This contest ROCKS!!
I tried to send my submission twice and it was returned undeliverable-rejected by recipient domain. I then sent from another business email I have, without the attachment to see if I could get an email to go through….it worked! (and I got confirmation back) I then attached my submission and sent…no confirmation, but also no rejected email. I know you are SUPER busy, but If you have time, could you let me know if it was received?

For Round One, does the little one in the photo need to be wearing Matilda Jane clothing?

Hi Matilda Team,

Nicole Catroppo - October 10, 2012 - 12:28 pm

I don’t want to assume…Do our initial submissions need to showcase a Matilda Jane piece of clothing? Or can they be any photo?

Sarah - October 10, 2012 - 11:55 am

The dimensions listed for Round 1 are for a portrait orientation, does that mean you will not accept a landscape orientation?

Denise - October 10, 2012 - 10:49 am

Kelly Morin - October 10, 2012 - 7:48 am

My daughter got her very first Matilda Jane dress and loves it. Of course I cannot afford things such as this, I was laid off from my job in August but someone found it on ebay and got it for her. I have never seen her face light up the way it did. Thank you Matilda Jane for making clothes kids love to wear.
