ABC Open – What’s Your Story?
ABC Open is an online storytelling community launched in 2010. It provides a focal point for Australian regional communities who want to get involved in sharing their experiences through the ABC via websites, radio and TV. To get involved, take a look at our projects, free workshops and events.

Group Description

The ABC Open Camera Club is run by ABC Open, an online storytelling community launched in 2010. ABC Open provides a focal point for Australian regional communities who want to get involved in sharing their experiences through ABC channels, including websites, social media, radio and TV.

As ABC Open continues to grow and evolve, becoming bigger and better because of your involvement, we find that sometimes we need to change the way we do things. One of our growth areas has been the huge increase in photography contributions directly to our website.

From the start of 2014, we’ll be using our website exclusively to accept your photography contributions. The ABC Open Camera Club will still exist on Flickr, so that you can visit and view the photos that have been contributed in the past, but it will no longer receive contributions.

Your ABC Open producer will keep the action happening in your local ABC Open Flickr group. When you’d like to contribute to a specific ABC Open project, head straight on over to the ABC Open website.

To discover the latest photography projects, visit ABC Open Projects. You’ll find a wide range of projects to get involved in, including video, photography and story writing.

Note: The Snapped: Your Top 3 project will continue to accept contributions via Flickr until it closes at the end of December 2013.

Group Rules

Welcome to ABC Open! We ask that you agree to abide by our simple group rules. We also ask that you read ABC Open's more general Terms and Conditions.

1. It's about honesty, fairness, independence and respect...
The ABC has four key values: honesty, fairness, independence and respect. Try to incorporate these values into any work you contribute to ABC Open, and also in your interactions with other members of the ABC Open Camera Club on Flickr.

2. Keep it legal
The ABC is responsible for all content that it published on its site, so material which could put us in legal hot water may be not approved or deleted. This includes material which is defamatory, and material which is in breach of copyright.

3. Play nice
We welcome debate and dissent, but personal attacks are not OK. We ask all group members to think about the context of their comments, both here on Flickr and on the ABC Open website, and the likely affect on other people.

4. Commercial material
ABC Open is not a commercial space, so please respect this. While you can link to your personal site, advertising is not appropriate. The moderators of ABC Open may also withdraw contributions which prominently display commercial branding or references.

5. Appropriate images and themes
To ensure ABC Open is safe for viewing at work, no nudes or pictures with disturbing themes are allowed. They will be removed by moderators.

6. Project related images
Only photos relating to specific ABC Open projects will be approved for publication on the ABC Open website. To find the photo upload form, visit the Get Involved section of the project you'd like to contribute to.

7. No image watermarks
Images watermarked with the photographer's contact information, company name and/or contact details will not be published. Contributors will not be notified if their image is not published due to it containing a watermark.

8. No images identifying persons under 18 years
Due to moderation restrictions, we cannot accept images featuring people under the age of 18 via Flickr. If you wish to contribute images featuring those under 18 years, you must upload your image directly to the relevant ABC Open project.

That's all there is to it. Easy! Thanks for joining.
