Submit Photos
Photos submitted for publication in The Lyre must be high-resolution JPEGs or TIFFs at least 300 dpi or 1 MB in size. Original photos off your camera or computer are best. Photos from applications such as Facebook, Instagram and Pic Stitch are typically low resolution and do not work well for print purposes.
 
To find the dpi of a photo, right-click on the photo or file name on your computer, choose Properties from the menu, click on the Details tab, then scroll down to where it says Horizontal resolution and Vertical resolution. Both of those should be at least 300 dpi. If they are less than that, the photo may appear grainy when printed.
 
Members and collegiate chapters wishing to send photos to The Lyre should email the photo, along with a three- to five-sentence description and list of those pictured, to The Lyre via email. They can also be mailed to: 
Alpha Chi Omega Headquarters, c/o The Lyre
5939 Castle Creek Parkway North Drive
Indianapolis, IN 46250-4343
 
Submission deadlines for each issue are as follows:
