The Guardian on Flickr ADMIN June 8, 2011
We'll feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers. By posting your pictures here you a) acknowledge that you have created the pictures or have permission to do so; and b) grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, free licence to publish your pictures as described. Copyright resides with you and you may reuse your pictures however you wish. You will be credited and paid if we make other uses of your pictures.

Group Description

Camera Club is a new page on the Guardian.co.uk website dedicated to still photography. This is the Flickr group for Camera Club.

FAQs

The Guardian Camera Club page is the main place to find information concerning the Guardian Camera Club. Please check the page regularly if you are interested in participating. On this page you will be able to see:

a. Blogs (including tips and thoughts on monthly assignments).
b. Reviews of portfolios and assignments which have been submitted through flickr.
c. Videos relating to monthly assignments.
d. Photography tips and camera reviews.

Upload your portfolios here and one of the Guardian's picture editors will select the best to review. There are two categories you can get involved in:

Portfolios. These should be 6 pictures and should be a representation of your work. A portfolio could showcase one subject or cover a variety of different pictures. However, as a set, they should hang together stylistically. Please mark your images with the same tag, for instance yournameportfolio (eg. johnsmithportfolio). This allows us to easily view your submission as a set.

Monthly assignments. The monthly assignment is an opportunity to create a fresh set of images which fulfil a specific brief therefore we won't consider any pictures which have been taken before the assignment was announced. 6 pictures should be tagged, for instance, yournamesubjectassignment (eg. johnsmithsummerevents). Each month you have an opportunity to enter a photograph in a competition. This competition ties in with the monthly assignment and your entry should be a single image from that set of pictures (and is therefore bound by the rules of the assignment). New assignments will be announced on the last Friday of the month.

Group Rules

Welcome to the Guardian Camera Club.

There are two categories you can get involved in:

Portfolio reviews. This is a submission of six pictures which you believe showcase your work. They could be on varying themes but a good folio tends to hang together well because of continuity of style or content. We will choose our favourites and review them via a gallery on our Guardian Camera Club page. Please mark your images with the same tag, for instance yournameportfolio (eg. johnsmithportfolio). This allows us to easily view your submission as a set. You can submit one portfolio each month

Assignments. This is a submission of six pictures which respond to a set brief. Again, we will choose our favourites and review them via a gallery on the Camera Club page. The idea for this is that you respond to the brief with new photography (we will remove any pictures which haven't been taken in response to the brief). The pictures should be tagged, for instance, yournamesubjectassignment (eg. johnsmithgraphicshapesassignment). Assignments will be set as and when the opportunity arises, and may last a weekend, or a whole month - please check www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/series/camera-club for more details

Photoshopping. Please use only darkroom type techniques, which is the rule we apply when using picture in the paper or on guardian.co.uk.

We'll feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers.
