The photo you submit must have water in it to qualify.

“If you go throughout the world, it’s likely that most people have access to a cell phone. You may not have one but there’s a possibility they may be able to use one, and that’s the hope is that this would be the most accessible piece of technology at this juncture,” said Rebecca Steiner, Average Joe Photo Show.

The women also explained why they chose to tie in with this photo show.

“I think we were looking for a philanthropic component, because that’s very important to us personally. And also use the gallery as a platform to do some sort of philanthropy and we were trying to think of an element that we could also include as the subject in the photos. And to have a clear, clear format for people to kind of use as a framework and so and thinking water, there’s a lot of water around here,” said Lori Warner, Average Joe Photo Show.

“The other thing too is that in this day and age, people really need cell phones to survive, professionally, socially, but everyone needs in a literal sense water to survive,” said Steiner.

So upload your photos to and your photo may be selected for the 2015 show.
