Looking for article contributors
We are looking for cycling enthusiasts who would like to contribute event based text and multi-media articles. This is purely a volunteer type of activity. We know that one person cannot be everywhere all the time, so we will be considering a few of you that want to help. Really try to get this going for the cyclo-cross season. Some specifics for article coverage and submission:
- You are not only representing yourself but are a representative of the CCA. Professionalism is paramount.
- Write with clear understandable language so that the public and novice riders can understand.
- Be unbiased. Do not favor one club or organization over another.
- Be objective. Opinions must be based on facts. If not sure then get clarification from an onsite official or specific person as necessary.
- Be comfortable asking questions and doing interviews with riders, event promoters, officials, and spectators alike.
- Photos and media require being original from you or authorized by the source with contribution credit(s) to be included from the source unless they want to remain anonymous.
- No advertisements, links, unless they are to official USA Cycling or our own CCA organizations.
- No promises to your sources or others that you cannot guarantee fulfilling yourself.
- No compensation offered, paid or bartered.
- No posting of html code.
- All articles must be approved by the board and may be edited for content before publishing for public view.
If not already registered on this website, you will be required to do so. For those selected, your permissions will be updated as needed to be a contributor. If you are not comfortable using the web interface then you will be able to submit articles via email to Robert. Any attachments like photos must be included as attachments with a preferred size not to exceed a resolution of 800-800 pixels. If you have videos that you want to submit, we would like to put those on the CCA YouTube channel which will be activated very soon. We can also support other videos posted to other YouTube channels and Vimeo but written (hand or email) permission must be obtained from an authorized source.
If you have any questions on this initiative, please contact Robert by either posting a comment on this article or via email. Be sure to include all your contact info as well.
