We are looking forward to receiving your ideas and proposals!
Article guidelines for written content
Article guidelines for images or audiovisual content
- You are free to provide pictures or audiovisual content to your article.
- A picture should have a width of at least 650 pixels.
- Sources: We need the copyright information for any picture you send us. That means if you provide a picture that is not your own, please state the source. If you found a suitable picture on the internet, make sure that you are allowed to use it in terms of copyright. Here are some suggestions where you can find unrestricted images and audiovisual content:
- UN: www.un.org/photos or websites retrieved from UN agencies’ websites.
- Norden: www.norden.org/en/news-and-events/images. The majority of the images may be used without restriction provided that you mention the image source (e.g. NN - norden.org), but check the individual image for information on rights.
- Flickr – make sure you thick the box “only search within Creative Commons-licensed content”.
- Google Image Search: In the image search results, click on the 'Options' button (the 'black wheel' in the upper right corner above the results), go to 'Advanced Search' and under 'usage rights' choose 'free to use or share'
- You can also use pictures you have taken yourself.
- If you would like to crop or edit a picture you want to add to your article you can use pixlr.com. This is an online tool, similar to Photoshop, free of charge and without the need to register.
- Audiovisual material on YouTube and Vimeo is always subject to the Creative Commons agreement, so you are free to use it or link to it.
- As with the articles, pictures provided will need the 'green light' from the editorial team.
