FAQ – Photos
So what is your visible hope? We are collecting your images, photos, illustrations, of things that bring you hope! Hebrews 11:1 say, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Sometimes hope can be hard to understand, because we cannot see it. But perhaps we can try to show others the images in our life that help us feel hopeful even when dealing with chronic illness or pain.
What kind of images are you looking for?
Your images of hope may include a photo of your dog, a photo of a flower, the beach, a ladybug, a big ice cream sundae, or your grandchild playing in the sprinkler. It may even include a photo of shoes you would rather not be wearing or a wheelchair, but they give you hope because they help you be mobile.
Your submissions should be of photos you have taken yourself or that you have permission to share.
What else should I post with my photo?
- Please include a sentence with your photo explaining why is gives you hope or how it makes you feel hopefully when you look at it. If you are emailing us the photo, the e-mail subject will become the caption.
- If you want to post them anywhere else (like your own blog or Facebook or Flikr for example) you can help us spread the word by adding the following line and code: Images of Hope is a campaign of Invisible Illness Awareness Week #iiwk12. See more images of hope here.
- If you know what a hash tag is and want to include it, great! our hash tag is #iiwk12. Other helpful hash tags are #invisibleillness and #imagesofhope
Where do I post these images?
Our MAIN site where we are collecting photos is at DropEvent. You can upload photos there or you can also email your photos to email@example.com . If you do not post them here, they are not an official part of our campaign, so don’t miss this step!
You are also encouraged to post them anywhere to share, for example, with your Facebook friends or on your own blog, and add the following to it: Images of Hope is a campaign of Invisible Illness Awareness Week #iiwk12. See more images of hope here.
We will be randomly selecting images to post to our Facebook Invisible Illness Week Page and Pinterest Invisible Illness Week page that we find on the at the DropEvent website. You will not be notified if we choose your photo, so be sure to check out these additional photo pages every now and then.
How many images can I share?
There is no limit, and we are hoping you will join our challenge to find one thing each day to feel shares your hope! Join our challenge and get your camera ready and try to post something at least five times a day.
We also appreciate diversity. For example, 20 photos of the same hummingbird may not be very interesting. Tey to find some things that other people may not even think of that reminds them, “oh yeah, that makes me feel hopeful too!”
It should be real, but that doesn’t mean it must be totally serious. We aren’t looking for just life-altering things. If a big iced-coffee gives you a bit of hope that you can make it through the day easier despite the pain, share it! Just share in a sentence why you chose that image.
Can I submit a video instead?
Yes, we would love videos, however they need to be uploaded to an online service already like YouTube. Once that is done, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the link and we will upload it to our Pinterest site and perhaps our InvisibleIllnessWeek.com web site.
