PROJECT TOGETHER 2020

The time to fight the global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus is difficult for all of us. We, photographers, also felt the effects, often losing overnight assignments planned for months.

However, we are able to do a lot for the world, showing how it looked in these difficult moments.

Together 2020 is a call for all photographers! All people who managed to capture in the pictures what Poland's reality looks like during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Send us your work illustrating what an epidemic threat looks like: life on the streetssport in times of pandemic and the opportunity to practice it, how cultural life looks like, how regular life looks like, or profesional life looks like.

Finally, the jury will select the best photographs that will be placed in a Book Album commemorating current events. Total revenue from the sale of Album Together 2020 will be allocated to support artists.

The creator of Together 2020 is the Scena Babel Association.

Oczywiście! Musisz jedynie dostarczyć zgodę opiekuna. Zeskanuj taki dokument i wyślij go nam za pomocą formularza znajdującego się poniżej.

ZDJĘCIA

Co powinno być na zdjęciach?

To tylko zależy od Ciebie. Ważne jest tylko to, byś nie narażał swojego zdrowia, ani zdrowia bliskich. Przestrzegaj obostrzeń panujących na terenie kraju. 
A co na zdjęciach? Pokaż świat tak jak go widzisz, Twoimi oczyma. Każdy z nas jest świadkiem jakiegoś wycinka rzeczywistości, a razem stworzymy pełny obraz.

Jakie zdjęcia są preferowane? Kolorowe, czy czarno-białe?

Absolutnie nie mamy preferencji.

Czy są jakieś wymagania techniczne co do przesłanych zdjeć?

Tak. Aby wysłać zdjęcie, musi być ono w formacie JPG, mieć maksymalnie 5MB, a maksymalna szerokość i wysokość nie może przekraczać 2000px.

PRAWA AUTORSKIE

Co oznaczają w regulaminie zapisy o przeniesieniu praw autorskich na Organizatora?

Przeniesienie to jest obwarowane warunkami i tyczy się tylko i wyłącznie przeniesienia praw do zdjęć, które pojawią się w drukowanym Albumie Razem 2020 i dotyczy tylko tego jednego nośnika. Co więcej, obwarowane jest to również ograniczeniem, przeznaczenia zysków na cel charytatywny. Innymi słowy, nie mamy prawa korzystać z Twoich zdjęć w żadnych innych przypadkach, o ile nie zawrzemy dodatkowych ustaleń.

Czym jest sublicencja?

Próbujemy wydać album z pomocą jednego z profesjonalnych wydawnictw (przy zachowaniu charakteru non-profit, warunków do przekazania zysków na cel charytatywny). By to było możliwe, również wydawnictwo musi mieć prawną możliwość wykorzystania zdjęć, to właśnie zapewnia sublicencja. Tak samo wygląda kwestia organizacji wystaw: tu też udzielimy sublicencji organizatorowi.
