Help us change the narrative. Between now and Friday, July 26, 2019 at 5pm submit photos of your child/children, infants to age 8. Photos will be reviewed and selected on a rolling basis. The 2020 calendar will emphasize the positive things happening in Milwaukee with our children. BCDI is looking for submissions that show and highlight the beauty of our children and express the brilliance of who they are.

Photo submission requirements are as follows:

  • All accepted photographs must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Must be full-color, high-quality, high-resolution images (a minimum of 300 DPI)

    • Photos from digital cameras are preferred.

    • Cell phone photos should be emailed at original on Android phones or actual-sized on iPhones.

  • Feature ONLY children, who are 8-years old or younger (no adults)

  • Must be candid or action shots (i.e., we will NOT accept professional studio portraits or images with prefabricated backgrounds)

Please forward questions to Tammy Saffold at or 1-855-MKE-BCDI. We’re excited to see your children shine!
