CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHS

Photographers are invited to submit pictures of Norfolk for use on the town website. Please read the following guidelines:

1. Photographs may show general scenes or specific things…buildings, activities or wildflowers, for example…that represent Norfolk’s various aspects and seasons. They must be digital images in color.

2. All photographs are submitted with the understanding that the website photo editor will review all submissions for whether they meet the necessary specifications, and that submission does not guarantee that the photo will be used. No payment will be made for use and the length of such use may vary from a few weeks to more than a year. Copyright ownership remains with the photographer but submission conveys to the town the right to use the photograph on its website, or to promote the website, indefinitely. Any other use requires permission from the photographer.

3. Photographs for the home page banner should be “mood” photos of the town. Any people should be an incidental part of the scene, not the focus. If people are recognizable, especially children, they should give their permission for use of the photo. Technical specifications: 72 dpi and 1438 pixels wide by 604 pixels high.

4. Photographs for the Living and Visiting pages can be more specific in subject and people can be part of the scene. Technical specifications: 72 dpi and 300 pixels wide by 200 pixels high.

5. Photographs for the Views page can also be more specific in subject and people can be part of the scene. Technical specifications: 72 dpi and any proportions, with a maximum of 800 pixels wide and 800 pixels high.

6. Submissions should be sent to suefrisch@mindspring.com for consideration by the photo editor. Please allow at least 2 to 3 weeks for this review.
