See the notes below about submitting photos.
* Project documentation: Please provide as much detail as possible. Items of interest include when it was built, how long it took, materials used, what tools/processes were used, special problems encountered and how overcome, working features and functions, overall size (length/width/height), weight. If you are the builder, please answer the questions that most people ask you about the project.
** Builder documentation: Items of interest include the builder's training and background and his approach to a project (does he draw detailed plans or visualize each part in his head, does he have a lot of sophisticated tools or a few basic ones, how many hours a day does he work on a project, etc.). Date of birth, schooling, work experience (whether related or not related to project), goals for future projects and personal thoughts on craftsmanship are also good items to include. If details about the builder's shop and the tools used are available, please include them as well.
Digital: Please provide the highest quality photos of the project possible. Photos in electronic format are preferred (digital camera or scans). Please send in .jpg or .tif format if possible on diskette (PC), 100 MB Zip Disk (PC), CD-ROM or by e-mail to craig@CraftsmanshipMuseum.com. Photos should be at least 600 x800 pixels in size, 72 dpi. Larger files are OK.
Prints, negatives or
transparancies: If photos are in print, negative or
transparency form, please mail them to
the Foundation for scanning. They will
be returned after scanning if you
provide a postage paid return envelope.
Do not write on the front or back of
photos. If notes must be attached,
number each photo in the upper left-hand
corner of the back in a small number
using a pen like a “Sharpie” that
can mark on photos without smearing. As
an alternative, use a small
“post-it” note attached to the back
of the photo with a reference number. Attach a sheet with
explanations of each photo referring to
the photo number. Another good method of
organization is to place each photo in a separate
and write the details on the envelope.
Preferred format for all text files: Microsoft Word (PC) or e-mail (Word files can be sent as e-mail attachments.) Handwritten or typed copy is also acceptable, but electronic files are preferred as it saves retyping.
