Contacting us about the churches and castles photo galleries
The 'Churches of the World' series of photo
galleries and short features has aroused considerable interest and
many contributions. To make things easier for anyone wishing to send
in their own photos or audio files, we've put together a few
requirements for you.
At this point, you can either carry on reading, or
skip to the contact form!
If your photos are suitable, they will appear
in one of the galleries of church or castle photos. Historical information
about the building will be included alongside them. Two or three good
(landscape) photos for each
church would be ideal, plus its name and location and
any relevant details and dates for the description. Landscape photos
work best, but portrait shots are also acceptable. You will be
fully credited for whatever we can use.
If you have audio recordings of church bells to
go with your photos, these can be used on all gallery pages. AVI or MP3 formats
preferred. Video material can also be used on feature pages.*
The page formats come in three styles, and your
photos will apear on whichever is most suitable for them:
General gallery page: a gallery page
of six or ten photos, usually with one or two individual images of each
place of worship, along with
historical notes on the building. This requires two or three good
photos, but always take more if you can so that we can select the
best for use. Please note the name of the church and its location,
so that if you don't wish to write your own notes, we can do it for
you. Audio recordings can be added to the page.
- Cathedral gallery page:
a gallery page concentrating on one particular cathedral (or castle,
manor house, palace, or even church).
This requires between six and ten useable photos, so please take as
many as you can so that we have a good choice to select from. Again,
you can either write your own notes for each photo, or we can do it
for you. Audio recordings can be added to the page.
Feature page: you can write an article, either
long or short, concentrating on a single building. This will also
carry a few of your best photos of the subject alongside the text.
Video or audio can be added to the page.
