The Clip Art Project

Terms and Conditions for Submission of Clip Art to the SIP 011 Project

1. All images should be taken and stored as still images in JPEG format.

2. Higher resolutions are better for image processing. Images should be photographed in the highest possible resolution.

3. Please ensure that you have necessary permission to take pictures of people or places. Ask people before taking a picture of them. Ask for permission before taking pictures of places which may be private property or which may be identifiable as a specific company or business.

4. Images supplied to the SIP 11 Clip Art project will be collated and circulated to other participant schools and later to other schools and interested parties. Copyright will remain with the original owner of the image (which will be presumed to be the relevant SIP 11 school unless otherwise indicated). Submission of the image to the SIP 11 Clip Art project is on the understanding that it may be used freely SIP 11 members and by other education users.

5. The SIP 11 Clip Art project may distribute its resources to other users on the specific understanding that they will not be used for sale or reward or in any commercial or profit making context.

Categories

My School: Images in this category should include self explanatory images of school and school life.

My Town: Images in this category should include self explanatory images of your town and surrounding area.

My Hobby: Images in this category should include self explanatory images of your favourite hobby or leisure pursuit.

Seasons / Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter

Images in this category should include self explanatory images of seasons in your area.

Sports: Images in this category should contain self explanatory images of sporting activities.

Guess What? Images in this category should include shots of commonplace objects taken from unusual or unfamiliar angles, for example in close up. These images should provide a useful stimulus for a quiz activity. Perhaps the picture should include internal clues which would enable the viewer to work out what the image or object actually is.


Story Boards: A story board is a sequence of between four and six images. They will have been taken in such a way that they will tell a story in a clear and obvious manner. The viewer should be able to work out a story from them without confusion.

Story boards can be used as a stimulus for narrative writing. The typical activity would be to present the story board along with this instruction: 'Look at these pictures carefully. Then write a story suggested by them.'
