New York Times Calls on Inauguration Attendees to Submit Their Photos

In much the same spirit as its Polling Place Photo Project, the New York Times is calling on attendees of this week's inaugural events to submit their photos for publication: wants to publish your photos related to the inauguration of President-elect Obama, from the preparations through the main event and after-parties. Whether you’re in Washington or taking part in inauguration-related events elsewhere, send an e-mail to with your full name and the location where the picture was taken, and attach your photograph(s). The photographs will be presented in an online readers’ album.

Consult this page for additional details about formatting and rights for the New York Times.  You also can upload your photographs to Flickr, which provides an option to license and share your photos under Creative Commons.

If you're interested in participating, our Guide to Documenting the 2009 Presidential Inauguration can help you document the inauguration while complying with the extensive security regulations that will be in place.  It also discusses tickets, permits, and credentialing requirements that may impact what non-traditional journalists and other attendees can do to document the events.
