Today, we’re pleased to announce two important updates that deepen Flickr’s commitment to our members and to the worldwide photography community.
We recently met with Ryan Merkley, CEO of Creative Commons, to talk about common goals, reflect on the history of our communities, and discuss future challenges and opportunities.
We are very proud of the The Flickr Commons photos uploaded by galleries, libraries, archives, museums, and governmental institutions. These photos won’t be deleted as a result of any of our announced changes. Photos that were Creative Commons licensed before our announcement are also safe.
The time has come again, #FlickrFam, to band together with photographers around the world for a global photowalk. This year’s Worldwide Flickr Photowalk theme is “Monuments and Historic Places” and we’re working with our friends in the Wikimedia community in support of the Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 (WLM) photography competition in September.
We’re happy to Welcome the Liberaal Archief of Belgium to the Flickr Commons. Read more about their collection here.
