Drought photograph campaign continues
AUSTIN -- The “What does your Texas drought look like?” statewide photo project has received hundreds of compelling photographs documenting the devastation caused by the ongoing drought. The coalition of state agencies, including the Texas Department of Agriculture, overseeing the project announced Oct. 1 that Texans have an extra month to submit their photos. Additionally, the coalition is asking Texans to share photos showing the other side of the drought by documenting innovative water conservation methods and positive drought responses. The new deadline to submit photos is Thursday, Oct. 31.
Additionally, the coalition will display some of the most compelling photos in an exhibit at the Texas Capitol from Monday, Oct. 28, through Friday, Nov. 1.
Photographs and videos may be submitted to the Flickr group, “What does your Texas drought look like?” at www.flickr.com/groups/texasdrought. This is a public webpage that anyone with an Internet connection can view, even those who are not members of Flickr.
Photographs also may be posted to Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #txdrought when sharing photos. The campaign’s Instagram account is texasdrought. Tag photos with date, location, and a short description. Additionally, you can email up to three photos to TexasDrought@yahoo.com, and the coalition will post the pictures to the Flickr page. All user-submitted photographs must be original content.
