We are excited to give the Flickr community a great way to gain exposure for your photography. Flickr and Yahoo have partnered with Alcatel, one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies, to showcase the best photography from our community to Alcatel users on their smartphones.
Specifically, Alcatel is looking to promote photos from Flickr members on their smartphone wallpaper and lock screens. The Flickr photos they choose from their Flickr groups will get wide visibility on phones throughout the world.
Similar to previous activations like the Yahoo Project Weather group, Alcatel has created an open submission group, where Flickr members can upload their photos for possible inclusion on Alcatel phones. They have set the limit to 5 photos per week and are specifically looking for quality images across ten categories, including Art, Architecture, Black & White, Food & Drink, Cars, Nature, Pets, Space, Travel, and Urban (streets, architecture, etc).
Photos should meet the basic size minimum stated in the group and should not contain watermarks, borders, signatures, logos, or time stamps. Be sure to tag the photos with the proper category for easier curation by the Alcatel group admins. Flickr members will be credited on the lock screens with links to your photos on Flickr.
From the open submission pool, Alcatel will then invite their favorites to a select group curated specifically for the activation. As always, read the rules of the group and understand the license you would be providing as part of the activation.
We hope you’ll join the groups and we look forward to hearing your feedback in the group discussions.
