We need im­ages of our region's to­ur­ist attractions, natural wonders, and local history, to help us pro­mote Albany as a prime to­ur­ist destina­tion.

We also need story's that tell the rich herit­age of our historic first settle­ment, how it affec­ted our lives and shaped our future.

In return, we credit you as the author or photo­grapher, with a link to a short bio about you and how to con­tact you if you wish. Un­fortun­ately, we don't pay anyth­ing.

Article Guidelines

We're look­ing for articles that tell an inter­­est­ing story.

Firstly, what happened, when, how, and who to, followed by what is there now, how it evolved and why it's inter­­est­ing.

Create the desire for a visitor to want to see things for themselves, ex­peri­­ence it, find out how the story ends.

We may edit your article to make it fit, enhance the story, correct factual errors or add mis­­sing info­rma­tion.

Y­our article should...

  • Be your own work, not down­loaded from a website.
  • Include acc­ur­ate facts where facts are used.
  • Tell a story such that a visitor would be inter­es­ted to find out more.
  • Be less than 1900 characters and pre­ferably spell checked.

Photo Guidelines

We want photos that look real, and repres­ent what a visitor would norm­ally see if they went there.

We're not inter­es­ted in artistic im­ages that use filters, wide angles, zoom lenses, have long ex­posures or show once off events.

We may use all or part of your im­ages, and crop or adjust them as required. An image may appear in several places in our website.

Y­our photo should...

  • Be your own image, not down­loaded from a website.
  • Be a clear image of some­thing in particular, pre­ferably with­out you in it.
  • Be of some­thing that is always there, or happens regularly, like once a month, or every year.
  • Be a natural look­ing image. Your phone is okay if it has a good camera.
  • Be left as it is. Please don't crop, re-s­ize, filter or man­ipul­ate it.
