IVV Photo Gallery

Walk .... Discover .... Enjoy .... then Share!

Share your passion for Volkssport through the photos you have taken at IVV-sanctioned events where you live or have travelled. Your participation will help promote your Association's / Federation's walks, illustrate the variety and richness of our walking experiences, and attract new walkers to Volkssport.

Photo Guidelines

1. Use only photos taken by you while doing an officially sanctioned IVV

     event;

2. Due to the pandemic this year, you may also submit pictures taken

     previously in 2018 and 2019;

3. Please do not upload photos of easily identified individuals, especially

     children.

4. Pictures submitted must be posted ONLY on (1) an individual FaceBook

     page, (2) the Facebook page of a local, regional or national Volkssport

     organization (as a member or with their previous permission), or (3)

     the IVV Photo Gallery FaceBook page. Photos may also be submitted

     by using the '#hashtags' (??) below on an individual Instagram or on a

     Twitter account.

5. There is no limit to the number of pictures submitted, but they must fall into

     the categories indicated below, along with their appropriate '#hashtag'.

     Photos may then be searched and grouped for consideration by gallery

     visitors who may be interested in only one or two categories, but not all.

     In the FaceBook 'Write a post ...' text entry box, please enter (1) Your

     name, (2)  a short photo description, (3) the location of the photo, and

     (4) the appropriate '#hashtag'. Then (5) add your photo to your message

     by clicking on the Photo/Video button below and navigating to the

     chosen picture on your computer or other device. The descriptive text

     may be in English, German or French. The appropriate '#hashtags' for

     each gallery theme are listed below.

Example:   Graham Fawcett - Haida totem poles - Victoria, BC CANADA -  #ivvculture2020

6. The same picture may be submitted for any two of the categories listed

     below by adding two of the '#hashtags' to the same picture, but no more.

     All photos will be approved daily by the Moderator before they

     appear on screen. Occasionally the approval can take 24-48 hours.
