Group Description

The Library of Congress would like to see images of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your life and community in the United States or its territories. We invite you to join COVID-19: American Experiences by contributing photographs or graphic arts to this Flickr group. Library staff will review submissions and may acquire images added to this group to preserve in its permanent collection.

Group Rules

The Library of Congress invites you to join COVID-19: American Experiences by contributing up to 5 photographs or graphic artworks to this Flickr group. The images should represent how the pandemic has impacted your life, your community, or life in the United States at large.

Please contribute only images that you have created. By adding your photo to this group, you are giving the Library of Congress permission to add your photograph/ graphic artwork to its permanent collections and to display them on its websites. Adding photos to this group will not count toward the photo's group limit. Please do not upload videos; accepted content types are limited to photographs or graphic artworks categorized as Safe.

We encourage you to consider assigning your images a Creative Commons license such as “Attribution-NonCommercial” that would enable the Library of Congress to display them in larger sizes on its website if selected for acquisition (this is not a condition to participate in this group). Otherwise people will need to visit the library in person to access the full size image. The Library will not select images for acquisition that have watermarks or photographer credits embedded in the image.

Images selected from this group for the Library’s permanent collection will be shared in Galleries from the Library of Congress Flickr account and ultimately you will be able to view the images selected for acquisition on the Library's website.

The Library of Congress will apply its comment and posting policy to comments made in discussion topics within this Flickr group.
