The State of Delaware is starting a new photography program called the 302 Fellowship! The goal of this program is to build an image library for our digital presence that highlights our beautiful state, showcases Delaware’s hidden gems, and supports local photographers. We are building a pool of up to 8 photographers from all three counties who will submit photos from all over our beautiful state. The program will run for a year and members of the fellowship will send in pictures on a monthly basis and will be compensated on a per photo basis.
We are looking for portfolios from talented photographers from all over the state. Portfolios should contain 30 photographs minimum. We are looking for images that are high resolution and high quality. In your portfolio submission, we have a preference for large images that are not already owned. We would love for portfolios to include a variety of pictures that are themed around all things Delaware for example including things like Delaware landscapes, Delaware cityscapes, buildings/sites that are iconic landmarks, or fly-over bird eye views of Delaware. We don’t want to see wedding photos, corporate/business events, family photos, inappropriate content, or overly-staged pictures of people within your portfolio.
You will need to fill out the substitute W-9 form on the Division of Accounting’s website, to get set up in the state accounting system.
We are looking for photographers to submit photos through Dropbox on the first Monday of the month. A general guideline brief will be provided at the start of the fellowship that will give photographers an idea of the types of photos and photo locations that we are looking for. Fellows are encouraged to keep the guidelines in mind, but we will give consideration to every photo that our fellows submit. After Fellows submissions, we will go through and select individual photos that best suit our needs for that month. We will pay for the rights to those pictures in order to use them throughout all Delaware.gov websites and subdomains and across Delaware’s social media accounts. Any photos containing people must be submitted with a signed release for both adults and minors (with parent/guardian consent). We are generally looking for photos that celebrate the natural, historical, and cultural beauty of Delaware and its communities.
Each time we select a photo to purchase, the Fellow will submit an invoice to us on a monthly basis for the photos we’ve chosen that month. We will pay through the preferred method you specify in your substitute W-9 vendor form (direct deposit, paper check, or credit card).
