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

What message would you like to send to David Cameron, Nick Clegg and their parties as they enter into government together in May 2010?

A greeting?
A warning?
Some sage (or silly) advice?
An idea?
A request?

We invite group members to create and hold up messages to the camera, to tell the world in a variety of creative ways what they want to tell the new coalition government.

We'll feature some of our favourites on guardian.co.uk and maybe in the newspaper version of the Guardian as well. By posting your pictures in this group you agree to let this happen (though copyright remains with you at all times).


Group Rules

This is important. Please read before joining!

Three things you should know:

ONE: This group is ONLY for pictures of people's personal messages to the new coalition government. Unfortunately, this means that any pics which AREN'T personal messages will be removed from the pool.

TWO: Keep it constructive. That doesn't mean your message has to be positive or even nice, but please try and keep messages appropriate for a diverse audience. Avoid being very offensive if you can help it. There are loads of other places on Flickr (including your own photo stream!) where you can doctored photos of the party leaders, your opinions of the election, parties and so on, but this group is not for them. Sorry.

THREE: Keep it legal. Please don't upload any material which you don't own the copyright to. It's simplest if you take a picture of yourself holding a message of your own making.

Here's how you can get involved:
1. Write your message on a bit of paper (or an envelope, or a post-it-note, or a napkin, or your hand...or anything at all) - write it clearly so we can read it
2. Take a picture(even the crappest camphone or photobooth/isight shot will do)
3. Add it to the group.

Got it? Yes? Good. Let's get on with it.

PS if you persistently remove and reinsert your picture into the group pool in order to keep it on the front page, it will be removed altogether. Be nice.
