This WikiProject's primary aim is to encourage the contribution and improvement of photographs on Wikipedia. The project seeks to act as a focal point for photographers, photo editors, and digital artists such that requests to improve articles with photographs and the photographs themselves can be dealt with in a timely manner. Hopefully this project will act as a noticeboard for photographers and interested editors. We hope to raise CC-by-SA media related to Assam in the internet through Wikipedia, as such media is very less in the internet compared to other parts of our country. We believe this would act as vehicle to showcase natural and cultural heritage of Assam internationally.
A descriptive title of the photos in English is preferable for global usage. For example, if you are uploading a photo of paddy fields of Nagaon, you should replace the default title such as .DSC002.jpg with View of a paddy field in Nagaon.
There is no need to put a creative or imaginative name to the photographs.
Once uploaded, all images will automatically come under CC-by-SA (Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike) license. The uploader cannot revoke this license in future course of time. The images may be used in various wikiprojects as required.
The image cannot be a selfie and the photographer must not be seen in the frame either fully or partially.
Photos promoting defamation, nudity, discrimination or bearing any such 'socially unacceptable message' are not acceptable. In this regard, decision taken by the judges are final and binding.
Digital effects that compromise the originality of the photograph are not welcome.
Images should not contain any watermark, copyright mark, photographer's name, caption, date and time stamp or any other artifacts added during post-production. Be considerate while compressing an image so that it does not reduce necessary details.
First five prizes shall only be distributed if there are minimum ten (10) participants. In this case, consolation prizes would not be given.
Images may be considered for prizes on the basis of quality and rarity.
