How to contribute

The Azopan Photoarchive is a non-profit civic initiative, we welcome any help to expand and maintain the collection. This can basically be done by lending or donating images / negatives, or by providing financial support.

Donate picture/negative

Do you have any old pictures/negatives made with analog technology that might be interesting for the public, and would you like to show them? Lend or donate them to us if you want to unlock your story to the world, or if you feel you no longer have need of them. We will digitize and publish them in the Azopan Photo archive.

The pictures published to date come from private collections and have been taken by amateur photographers, but we also collaborate with renowned photographers to process their photographic heritage.

If you already have your old photos digitized in good quality and would love to share them with us, please write us.

Technical requirements: .jpg format and long side of the image should be at least 4000 pixels.

Are you a museum or owner of a larger collection? Contact us and we will help you implement a joint digitization project.

Conditions to accept your photos into the collection:

The donor certifies that they have the appropriate rights to share or submit the photo and that the image does not infringe on any third party rights.

By uploading the image, the donor provides a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to the Azopan Photoarchive, and allows public disclosure, display and archiving of the content in accordance with the Creative Commons license.

Financial support

To date, this project has been implemented entirely through volunteer efforts, and by calling in favors from the friends and families of the volunteers. But to ensure the longevity and continued growth of the project it is imperative to raise financial support from the community. If you like what we are doing, please consider helping us with a one-time or subscription-based donation to contribute towards our operating costs. You can do this through bank transfer, but you will soon be able to also donate online.

The administrative background of the project is provided by the Transylvania Heritage Foundation, bank account number: IBAN - RO19RNCB0188131211790001, Banca Comercială Română.
