National Museums Scotland ADMIN February 24, 2010
Welcome to our SnapScot 2009 photo project. Thanks to everyone who took part over the Homecoming Scotland weekend. You can still submit your contributions and be part of our project and share your ideas and inspirations with us.

Group Description

SnapScot Photography Project 2009

As part of the Year of Homecoming Scotland 2009 we asked who or what inspires you about Scotland. From your Scottish music idol to your granny, your favourite object in the Museum to a special place in Scotland that you love to visit, we invited you to capture your inspirations in photographs and share them with us in the group pool.

All submissions received before the Homecoming Scotland Finale Weekend at the end of November were shown on plasma screens at the National Museum of Scotland, alongside photographs of visitors who participated in the project at the museum over the weekend itself.

How to take part

The main project and a chance to take part at the museum itself are now over, but you can still submit your photographs to the Flickr pool:

1. Take a digital photograph capturing what inspires you, based on one of the two SnapScot categories (see below).

2. Tag it with ‘snapscot09nms’.

3. Join this group and add your photograph to the pool.

4. Add the ‘small’ version of your photograph to the ‘What inspires me about Scotland’ discussion thread along with a short description or explanation.

All submissions are featured on the SnapScot project pages of our National Museums Scotland website.

By uploading photographs to this group you consent to your images being displayed at the National Museum of Scotland and on the National Museums Scotland website. National Museums Scotland is operating this project in line with Copyright and Data Protection legislation.

SnapScot Categories

a) Submit a photograph of yourself holding up a sign saying who or what inspires you (see group pool for examples from museum staff).
