Flickr Donation Programme Launch


Tell Your Story With Photos: Flickr Donation Programme Now Available On The CTX Programme 

May 22nd, 2008

The Flickr photo sharing service has teamed up with TechSoup/CTX Programme to offer premium "Pro" accounts to individuals within eligible organisations. Flickr is a new way for organisations like yours to tell your story. By requesting a package of two or five Pro accounts, you can showcase and chronicle your organisation's work through your own photography.

 

Flickr To celebrate the launch of the Flickr Donation Programme in the UK, we are offering the first 20 qualifying organisations that place a donation request for either a two or five Pro licence package one free place on a Flickr Masterclass to be held on the 20th June 2008 in London.



Flickr is a Web site for photo storage, sharing and organisation, making photo management an easy, natural, and collaborative process. Flickr stores over two billion photos taken by members all over the world. Communication tools let you add comments, notes, and tags to your photos. You can also post photos to a blog, share them, and more.

Learn more about how to place a request for a package of Pro accounts, made available to the nonprofit community thanks to a generous donation from Flickr.
