F.O.A.W (Friends Of Aqueduct Walk), a community park group for the people and a catalyst group supported by Partnership For Parks whose mission in part is to maintain, up-keep, and restore the beauty of Aqueduct Walk, has joined forces with Photoville, a non-profit that works to promote increased access to photography for all, to produce a public art project along Aqueduct Walk on E. 183rd Street.
Email submissions to [email protected]
Please make sure your submission is high resolution, so they can be printed on a banner!
Alongside your image files, you will need to provide:
* By submitting this photo, you acknowledge that this photo belongs to you or your family and you’re granting permission for it to be displayed in the Friends of Aqueduct Walk storytelling project.
Ideally you have access to the original photo, either as a physical snapshot, or the digital file.
For digital files:
Did your file come straight from your camera or your phone? If so, it should be good to use. Avoid taking photos off of Facebook, the internet or social media. Those platforms compress photos to a resolution that’s too low to print for public art.
For physical snapshots:
Use a camera, or the camera on your phone to take a photo of the snapshot. Do this during the daytime when you can place the snapshot in an evenly lit area, so you can avoid using flash or a lamp, which can cause a glare in your photo.
Submitted photos will be collected in two ways:
When you upload your photos, you may include a photo credit or stay anonymous.
You may submit any image file (JPEGS, TIFF, etc). The most important thing is that the file is high resolution so it can be printed on a large banner.
All photos will be added to Friends of Aqueduct Walk’s community archive which may be used in the future.
