Picture Fishing submissions
(For lack of a better workflow, at this time, this form requires that you be signed in to a Google Account. If this is a problem, shoot us an e-mail.)

Thanks for your interest in this project; we're extremely excited by all the wealth of collaborators.

Use this form to submit your contribution. Please make one form response per "submission." A typical submission will entail up to five images (no more than 10mb per image) plus a textual treatment. There's plenty of scope for going beyond that but we need to have those conversations individually; in case this bulk submission form doesn't capture your needs, just contact us.

We also welcome multiple contributions from the same person(s), so long as each submission captures a different "theme," idea or content.

Please read through the FAQ and additional documentation at picturefishing.com. Remaining unanswered pre-submission questions or post-submission clarifications should be sent to ajadhav@berkeley.edu.

Please include "Picture Fishing:" as a prefix in your e-mail subject in all cases.

Details submitted here can certainly be changed at a later date, though we'd prefer to have everything as "correct" as possible.

Name of contributor(s) *
Full name as you would like to be identified in any publication (web or otherwise). If a submission comes from more than one contributor, please enter names in the order they should be credited. When in doubt, include an explainer in the "Other notes/comments" field below.
E-mail address of corresponding contributor *
E-mail is the primary way we communicate with the group of interested collaborators at this stage, so please include an address that is checked with regularity. If a submission has than one contributor, designate one address for correspondence.
Organizational affiliation of contributor(s) *
Enter secondary descriptors for each contributor. Use full proper nouns and make clear which name (in case of more than one contributor) goes with which organization: E.g. Jadhav: University of California at Berkeley.
Hyper-brief description of the submission *
We're looking for a short phrase to describe the submission in a list. E.g. "Traditional fishers' river festival in Aghanashini," India; or "Long-distance 'artisanal' shark fishery of South India;" or "Fisheries science bureaucracy in Alaska."
Title of the submission *
This is to be distinguished from the shorter descriptive phrase you previously entered. Consider this a headline or part of the frame/analytic for your submission, likely to appear on the web with your images/text. Need not be a complete sentence. Subtitles should be broken by a colon; titles should nonetheless be reasonably succinct.
Descriptive tags/keywords for submission (six to 10) *
Enter individual descriptive tags or keywords for the submission. Separate tags by semi-colon; please limit individual tags to a maximum of three words. Tags should refer to the submission and provide context and categorization. Be creative but also include tags for scale, content and geography. Try to pick tags that might be applicable to other potential submissions (such as "SSF" or a species or a concept). Example set of tags: crabs; estuary; mangroves, SSF; India; Aghanashini, labor; subsistence, seasonal, caste-based
Geolocation most appropriate for submission *
This gets tricky but we ask contributors to exercise their best judgement. Consider what place marker best associates with the specific images submitted (not simply the fishery in question) and decide where you would drop a SINGLE PIN or place marker on a map to geolocate the subject of the submission. This might be an area at sea, a specific estuary, a village, a worksite or another proxy geography. When you have that location in mind, FIRST, go to Google Maps, zoom to an area/extant where you can clearly see said place. SECOND, right/control-click on an empty cell (i.e. not an already labeled feature) and select "What's here?" from the pop-up menu. A small grey pin will appear where you just clicked and a new label box will appear in the bottom of the window with a geographic label and a set of coordinates in decimal degree. THIRD, click on the set of coordinates in this new label box. The grey pin will turn to a red pin and the left-hand sidebar of the window will now show descriptive details for your pin. FOURTH, click the share icon in the left-hand sidebar and select copy link from the resulting pop-up. FIFTH, paste the new link (which directs us to your chosen place marker) into this form. If this is confusing, see the geolocation example below. Note: You can get coordinates for your submission in any method you use but request decimal degree format.

Draft of short textual treatment (or at minimum a conceptual note) for your submission. *
At this stage, we are open to a wide range of styles of text to accompany images. Ideally, contributors will submit a well-drafted version, but at minimum we expect a kind of formed concept note for text to enhance the story or provide basic context/conceptual framing of the images submitted. This text might be akin to an extended caption in that it primarily describes further the content of the image(s), but contributors may also offer analysis, theory or argument regarding image content — perhaps implying why the image(s) were submitted — and its relation specifically to fisheries diversity. Brevity and clarity will be paramount as textual treatments should be limited to 800 words (shorter is better) and should adequately address/explain/invoke all images submitted. Write as though your submission will be read in isolation; it should NOT require reference to the existence of the larger project. We also prefer third-person voice, though recognize there may be important, arguable exceptions. This text should include citations as needed in parenthetical in-text (author date) format, with a full reference list at the end (reference list doesn't count toward word count). Use the following file naming convention: YOURLASTNAME_GEOGRAPHY_SINGLEKEYWORD.extension Example: JADHAV_INDIA_MANGROVEFISHING.PDF
I certify that I a) have permission to submit these images from any clearly identifiable subjects of private or individual images, and b) have given sufficient ethical consideration to the reproduction of public, landscape or group images. *
There's only one option here. If you can't answer affirmatively then we can't accept your images. We're happy to discuss this — the ethical question surrounding the image — but we expect contributors to have also engaged this before submission.
Will you be at 3WSFC in Thailand in October 2018? *
Would you like to have your contribution considered for inclusion in the Too Big Too Ignore network's Information System on Small-Scale Fisheries? *
You can see more of the ISSF at https://issfcloud.toobigtoignore.net; TBTI/ISSF is a partner of Picture Fishing and therefore we envision adding our contributions to the "Experiences" layer.
Other notes/comments
Add any specific comments or explanations to be directed to us, the Picture Fishing organizers. This could be clarifications or other ideas for modes of engagement, concerns you have about the process or your contribution or suggestions for us generally or specifically.
Upload images *
Maximum of 5 image files per submission. We encourage a diversity of shots, angles, emphasis, etc., in line with good photojournalistic practice. We prefer the highest quality image you have (with the caveat that files can be no more than 10MB each). Ideally, submit a TIF or low-compression high quality JPG. Camera specific RAW formats are not needed. Use the following file naming convention: YOURLASTNAME_GEOGRAPHY_SINGLEKEYWORD_serial#.extension Example: JADHAV_INDIA_MANGROVEFISHING_1.JPG
