This looks fun! Go… participate!
May 2013 marks the first anniversary of e-codices Flickr Project. To celebrate this event, I would like to invite you to participate in curating an exhibition called My Manuscript Journey using the e-codices images present on Flickr. This could be a good way to find out what interests you and a good opportunity for you to express yourselves visually by creating a gallery with e-codices content. The most popular manuscript images will be used to create a set of 20 images that will be printed and used for the exhibition. The exhibition will take place in September 2013 at the premises of e-codices office at the University of Fribourg, in Fribourg, Switzerland. As a reward for the contribution, on the day of the opening, 10 names of the participants will be drawn and they will receive a copy of one of the printed images that will be sent to them by post. Here is how to participate: First of all you will need a Flickr account. If you don`t have one, you can create one easily using your Facebook or Google account to sign up on the Flickr homepage(www.flickr.com). To create a Gallery just go to one of the e-codices manuscript images (www.flickr.com/photos/e-codices/) that you want to add and within the Actions menu click the “Add to a gallery” link . From here you will create a new gallery , with the title My Manuscript Journey. Add 10 of your favorite images from e-codices Collections on Flickr (Top ten only, please , and no videos). The best approach would be to access directly the collections: “Themed journeys” and “The treasure”. (Images from “Behind the scene” collection are not eligible for this exhibition). It would be great if you could explain the reasons for your choices beside each image. The time frame to create your gallery is May 1 - May 31, 2013 I have created the following discussion topic: “My Manuscript Journey” where all the additional notifications will be posted and where you can also submit the link of your created gallery. In case you need some more clarification, feel free to e mail me on the following e-mail: email@example.com Thanks in advance for your participation and I am looking forward to see where this “Manuscript Journey” will take us.
