PICTURE RESEARCH INTERNSHIP
Once again congratulations for having been selected. We are very excited to have you all onboard and are very much looking forward to working with you. As mentioned during our first individual meeting we hope that this is the first step to a long term collaboration and as the project evolves so will your role and input.
The internship is designed to primarily assist us to gather content for the EKO Haiti website while developing new research skills. The initial step consist in researching and gathering photographs from the World Wide Web and upload them into our server using the upload form below.
Before going ahead and start uploading images, I would like you to watch the introductory video and the two tutorials in order to ensure that you understand the nature of the project, the task at hand and all specifics related. The Creative Commons tutorial is particularly important as it sets the frame for the picture research as well giving all the information needed in order to ensure that you search for relevant images (type, size, licences).
As you will see the form is only slightly different than the one you have been using during the exercise.While filling out the Upload Entry Form please refer to the Guidelines in order to ensure that the correct information is given for each field.
Read carefully the guidelines below to ensure that the correct data is entered for all fields.
Picture Title: If the image already has a title simply copy and paste it. If not the Title should be 2 to 3 words long, referring to the main subject of the image.
Photographer: Just as for the date, the author of the picture might not be known. If that is the case just enter “Unknown”.
Date: Most images will be dated but in some cases, especially when looking at old images, the exact date is unknown. If that is the case just enter the estimated date or simply enter “Unknown”.
