The Entertainment Industries Council, a National Recovery Month partner, encourages you to help the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration highlight National Recovery Month 2011 and the events dedicated to recovery. Show your support for recovery by uploading photos and entering the Recovery Month Flickr Challenge.
To enter the Challenge, upload your photos to Flickr and use “Recovery Month 2011” to tag each photo. The winner will be determined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration based on the most photos tagged and uploaded by one Flickr account by October 31, 2011. The winner of the Challenge will be announced on SAMHSA’s Recovery Month website and social media properties, and will be recognized at the January Planning Partners meeting.
By uploading your photos on Flickr and using the “Recovery Month 2010” tag, you will help show the importance of events, raise awareness of Recovery Month, and show that recovery is possible.
SAMHSA encourages you to post the photos with the “Attribution Creative Commons” license to allow for future use of the photos by Recovery Month and SAMHSA. By using the “Attribution Creative Commons” licensing, and including the name, date, and location of your event, your photos may be highlighted and used in the Road to Recovery programming or other Recovery Month materials.
For detailed instructions on joining Flickr, uploading photos, and tagging photos as “Recovery Month 2011,” please visit the Flickr Challenge page on SAMHSA’s website .
