Today's Task: Review Photos

We collected 200 pictures from 7 people in 4 communities. Thank you for submitting!

Next steps:

  1. Now: continue collecting photos
  2. April: committee review of photos to approve/reject
  3. May: sort into categories
  4. June: publish online
  5. June & beyond: promote online gallery once published

I need your help with step #2, reviewing pictures. Click the link here or the button below to access an online Google survey. Click "approve" or "reject" below each picture or provide details with "other."

Things to consider might be:

  • Is this reflective of rural culture or lifestyle?
  • Is this photo appropriate or inappropriate?
  • Is this something people might find useful?

Can at least 5 people to review photos before they are published? Deadline: April 30.
