The '''Fedora picture book''' is a project of the [[Marketing]] team. The goal of this photo project is to communicate what Fedora means to us and our communities. Images should show a Fedora contributor doing something Fedora- or free software-related and should include a short description of 250-500 words (their "story") of how the subject uses Fedora and free software and how this photo demonstrates one of the four [[foundations]] (freedom, friends, features, first).
#REDIRECT [[:Category:Picture book]]
Photographers are open to interpret this theme as concretely or abstractly as they like. For example, you could choose to photograph something as straightforward as a teacher you encouraged to use Fedora in the classroom holding an apple with a Fedora sticker on it, or you could have someone photograph you holding a personal item that symbolizes what inspired you to join the project. Feel free to brainstorm for whimsical ideas as well, such as a developer covered in peanuts (because you have to be "nuts" to work for free, right?). Group photos are also acceptable, such as a group of ambassadors holding stacks of live media to be distributed or XO's in the wild.
== Image requirements ==
Images should be of high quality. You don't have to be a professional photographer, but composition, focus, and lighting are vital to communicating a strong message. If in doubt of your photography skills, feel free to ask a friend or post your idea to to see if we can find someone in your area who's willing to help.
Images must contain at least one person doing something Fedora-related.
A release form must be signed by each person in the photo and the photographer. The release form allows the subjects' likenesses to be used in the picture book and releases the copyright of the image to Red Hat under the CLA.
=== Submitting your image ===
{{admon/warning|Please don't submit images right now|We're working on these instructions.}}
* Make sure you have a FAS account with a signed CLA and access to the wiki.
* Confirm that you have: the image (in a high enough resolution — at least 5" on both sides at 300dpi, putting the minimum dimensions at 1500x1500px), release forms of everybody in that image, and a "story" to go with that image.
* [[Special:Upload|Upload your image]].
** '''How to name your image:''' If there is one person in the shot, Lastname-firstname-####.jpg is the template. Use a four digit number (zero pad if necessary) starting with 0001. If there is more than one person in the shot, iterate the last names from left to right to produce Lastname-lastname-lastname-####.jpg. If you have questions contact [[User:Ianweller|Ian Weller]].
** Include the following in the image description:
*** Names of the people in the image, from left to right if applicable
*** Necessary information about the photo (perhaps it would help to have context of where the photo was taken, or FAS account names of subjects if applicable)
*** Individual "stories": use [[Template:Picture book story]] for ''each'' subject like so: <code><nowiki>{{picture book story|</nowiki>''Subject's name''|''Story''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code>
*** Release form check templates: use [[Template:Picture book release form check]] for ''each'' subject like so: <code><nowiki>{{picture book release form check|</nowiki>''Subject's name''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code>
*** <code><nowiki>[[</nowiki>[[:Category:Picture book photos]]<nowiki>]]</nowiki></code> at the end of the description. Ensure that you have added the photo to that category, because we won't ever see it if you don't.
* After uploading your image, be sure to click the "watch" tab at the top of the page, and confirm that your [[Special:Preferences|preferences]] will send you an email if a watched page is changed. This will help you keep track of release form approvals and other important information.
* Write the name of the image in the appropriate field on the release form.
* Mail your release form to [[#Release form mailing addresses|the appropriate location]].
== Release forms ==
The release form is available at [[Media:Picture book release form.pdf]]. ''Use only this release form for Picture Book photos.''

== Submission and distribution ==
Photos will be uploaded to this wiki. For the first book, enough photos will be selected to produce one book (approx. 80–100 full-color pages). Striving to provide full cover of the entire Fedora community is necessary. See [[#Requirements|the requirements]] for information on what your photo needs and how it is to be uploaded.
The books will be published through [ Lightning Source] and whatever profits are left will benefit internal Ambassadors and Marketing efforts or will be donated to well-deserving non-profits.
