>From JJA webadministrator JA Kawell:
Are you going to the JJA Jazz Awards gala or a satellite party? Are you
planning to take photos? Would you like to distribute those photos to
interested editors--and perhaps sell them?
The JJA has just created a Flickr Group "Pool" where you can upload your
Jazz Awards photos. We'll include a link to the "Pool" in press releases
and other promotion announcing the winners-- that way editors and others
can see your photos and contact you if they are interested in using them.
Here's what you need to do to participate:
- Be a current JJA member in good standing
- Have your own Flickr account (Set one up at http://www.flickr.com if
you don't have one. They are free-- the only annoying part is that you also
need to create a Yahoo account)
- Send the address connected to your account to
admin at jazzjournalists.org and
say you want to join the Awards photo pool
- You'll receive an invitation to the Group-- login to your Flickr
account and then click on the link in the invitation to accept.
- If you've never uploaded photos to Flickr, familiarize yourself with
how to upload, how to put captions and other info on the photos, and how to
share photos to the group.
On the day of the Awards, you'll want to upload your photos to your Flickr
account and share them with the group as soon as possible. The press release
with the winners names will be released immediately following the awards
presentation, and editors looking for photos will need them quickly.
This isn't just for NYC photographers-- editors in locales where satellite
parties are being held may want pictures with a local angle.
BE SURE TO PUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND/OR PHONE # PROMINENTLY IN THE CAPTION
SO THAT INTERESTED USERS CAN EASILY CONTACT YOU. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
MAKING YOUR OWN DEALS WITH USERS. THE JJA CANNOT ACT AS AN INTERMEDIARY OR
SALES AGENT, WE ARE PROVIDING THE POOL SIMPLY TO GIVE YOUR PHOTOS MORE
P.S. If you'd rather take simple cell phone photos and upload them to
Twitter during the Awards parties, that would be great too.
