Photo Archive for UNDP Zambia Country Office
Draft Terms of Reference for the Photographer
UNDP Zambia country office is planning to contract a photographer for
something like two weeks to a month to shoot a digital photo archive for us.
This is to avoid the hassle with having to hunt after good photos every time
we make a publication.

To create a digital photo archive for United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Zambia Country Office. The archive will consist of photos covering the three UNDP focus areas in Zambia (Good governance, Environment and natural resources, HIV/AIDS), UNDP staff at work, plus general photos illustrating the country, Zambians and human development.

The archive is needed to have a stock of high quality photos to be used in different communication and advocacy materials.

Possibly, the UNDP photo archive project could be combined with another photo project at UN in Zambia: Taking pictures for a series of 8 posters illustrating UN work towards the Millennium Development Goals in Zambia.

The photographer has be able to work independently, deliver a sizeable stock of good quality photos in short time and understand the visual ethics related to development advocacy work. A CV and portfolio as proof of these capabilities is needed. Knowledge of the country and the local languages is considered as a big asset.

The photographer will have to bring his/her own digital equipment. Apart from shooting she/he is expected to do the editing required and write captions. To facilitate this, UNDP will provide the photographer with a workstation with PhotoShop.

UNDP responsibilities
UNDP help the photographer in choosing locations, making contacts etc. However, the photographer should feel that he/she has free hands to pursue his/her ideas and work independently in the limits of the assignment.

Copyright for the photos taken under the assignment will be assigned to UNDP but the photographer’s name will be credited each time a photo is published.

Hi :
Um, I really do have a problem with the part about “assigning copyright to client”. THis, IMHO is unethical and in my country (France) is also illegal. The copyright ownership of photos is an unalienable Artist’s right and cannot be changed by this kind of request no matter what. So what goes with the U.N.? Do they think that they are better than the law?
Thanks for listening to my rant,
Tom Craig
