  • Your NEXT Photos Could Make It to Print

    Picture this: your photographs published in PT in Motion magazine.

    The newly redesigned PT in Motion is inviting all attendees to the NEXT Conference and Exposition to become a volunteer photographer. Snap a few great pictures of goings-on, take a few creative selfies, grab a couple candid shots, and e-mail them to the magazine. You just might see your work published in the September issue alongside coverage of NEXT.

    Although a professional photographer will be covering the major events, that’s only going to scratch the surface. We’re looking for additional coverage of all aspects of NEXT: sessions, special events, attendees, views in and around the hotels and convention center, and anything else that grabs your attention or the attention of others.

    The call for photographs is part of PT in Motion's efforts to encourage greater member involvement in the look and content of the magazine, from article themes to photography.

    PT in Motion will not consider any submissions that don’t meet these 2 requirements:

    1. Include with your submissions the time and location, names of people you can identify in the photo, and your full contact information, so PT in Motion can get back to you with any questions or concerns.
    2. Photos must be high resolution. Be sure to set your camera or phone to a high resolution setting (3 MB or greater).

    E-mail your best shots with your contact information to: PTinMotionMag@apta.org.
