EU project “SAY CHEESE!” invites photographers to take part in the online survey
How familiar are photographers from Belarus, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia and Azerbaijan with each other’s works? How do photographers deal with infringement of their copyright? Are photographers familiar with stock photography standards? Which photography-related topics need more coverage in photographic communities of the Eastern Partnership? In order to get answers to these questions, EU project “SAY CHEESE!” is launching an online survey in six Eastern Partnership countries.
The survey aims to analyze the state of photography development in Eastern Partnership countries, to define most relevant topics and areas of interest for amateur and professional photographers, to assess their educational needs and to find out whether photographers are interested in the revival of creative links with their colleagues from other Eastern Partnership countries. Results of the survey will help project partners to better adapt the project’s events, such as round tables, seminars, common online photo school, business forums, photo contests, open-airs, to the needs of Belarusian, Armenian, Ukrainian, Moldovan, Georgian, and Azerbaijani photographers.
If you care about the development of photography in your country and if you would like to participate in the project’s events in Belarus, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, and Azerbaijan, we invite you take part in our online survey. The survey will be available online until February 28, 2013:
