Contribute and Be Published

The stories we publish on Fearless and Framed® reminds readers of what matters in their life—the stuff that’s important, yet easily overlooked.

Our growth and success is not one-sided or one-minded, it’s from all of our voices coming together to help others understand, believe, and fall in love with the fulfillment that comes with slowing down and practicing Intentional Documentary®. Join us in the documentary movement by sharing your story, your photos, your thoughts, & more.

Your story could save someone else’s story from going unnoticed.



1. “Full Stories”—Real Stories You’ve Documented

Think fast: What story are you most thankful to have documented through several photos, a film / video, in writing, etc.? That’s what this category is about!

While we do share documentary family & children too, we’re actively seeking to add these types of subjects to our publications:

  • Stories from the perspective of different activities or experiences. Think: sports, snowmobiling, equestrian, visiting the family cabin, a day in the life of work, visiting Aunt Sally, playing Pinochle with Grandpa Joe, wine night with your girlfriends, fishing with the boys, hard life challenges… the possibilities are endless.
  • friendship
  • community
  • senior/teen/individual stories
  • engagement / stories of partnerships, couples, love old & new
  • personal photography projects
  • your preservation pieces: how are you using what you’ve documented to SERVE your life?

While we believe social cause documentary work is important too, please keep in mind who are readers are: people looking to see + record more of the stories in their own lives.

A few examples of stories we love:

Submit up to 25 photos at 1200 px wide and written essay about the story, why it matters, and how you documented it.


2. One Photograph: Iconic Photo Series

Or, as I like to call them “Simple Pictures with Big Backstories.” These photos symbolize deep meaning to you even if they’re filled with technical flaws, randomness, and little to no meaning to the rest of this big ol’ world.

Contribute ONE photograph that’s highly iconic to you + a couple paragraphs about the photograph & why it matters.
