From City Councilor Exraodinnaire And Most Excellent Person- The Wonderful, Thoughtful,Hard Working,City Loving, Jackie Hardy!
Hope family is well.
As you may have seen in today’s GDT the City is in the process of putting their new website together and we are looking for some nice photos of the City that can be incorporated into the web design…. It may be asking a lot, I do not know, but we are looking for photographers to donate their electronic photos (as large as possible) to the City for no cost with the understanding that they will not be attributable on the photo itself…. there has been a brief discussion that we may have a section of the web page that does say thank you for many different contributions to the city (site) and the attributes for the photos could possibly be there… but nothing firmed up on that (yet)…. I have seen dozens and dozens and dozens of absolutely FANTASTIC photos taken by many people and bloggers in the city… and I am wondering if you could reach out to others to see if they would be willing to donate their electronic photos of the city… we are looking for different types of photos… iconic, action orientated, places, buildings, special settings AND OF COURSE OUR HARBOR… variouis photos that show Glou. in summer, spring and fall (for some reason it was believed that winter … snow…. scenes wouldn’t fit… I don’t agree, so send what you will!!!) We hope to get so many submissions that it will be difficult for us to pick and choose those that will become part of our new web design!!! (photos that will DRAWWWWW viewers to our beautiful City) Here is the email address to send them to photos … of course we would like to have a note from those who do submit stating something like the following… ( I’m no lawyer, so this is my best stab….. check with Mike Wells in our IT department mwells , maybe he has something legal-eagle”ish” to use!)
here is my stab at it:
I ________________ am the owner of the attached photograph and I have the exclusive right to allow the City of Gloucester the right to use the photographs on the City of Gloucester website. I understand that I will not be paid by the City for the use of this photograph, and that I will not be acknowledged/attributed as the photographer for use by the City for same.
Joey and others….Thanks for whatever you can do to help get the word out to all the fantastic photographers – much appreciated, Jackie Hardy
remember to submit photo(s) ASAP as large as possible electronically to photos with the statement above.
our IT dept. wasn’t sure we’d get many folks who would donate… so lets show them differently and swamp the City with photos!!! Best to all with many thanks, Jackie Hardy
