Your photos — On BBC.com

How does the BBC cover the ice storm in the Midwest? With reader photos, uploaded to bbc.com. The BBC makes it easy and includes some posted photo guidelines, including this:

Each picture will need a caption.

Who, what, why, where and when is a good place to start when gathering
information for the caption, but where possible quotes from those pictured and a
description of how you are feeling will help bring the essay to life.

We don’t need many words – no more than 40 per picture.

They use reader-submitted videos, too.
