Photographic image keywording

A combination data entry with photography. This project would suit an observant indvidual with:

- an interest in photography

- a good command of English

- the ability to think creatively when decribing what they see

- a patient and methodological approach

- Microsoft excel skills

Working for a freelance photographer, you will be emailed an Excel spreadsheet and given a web site location to download a number of low resolution thumbnail images. Observing each image individually, using the spreadsheet, you will be required to create and enter a number of relevant keywords that describe it in a number of different ways:

- location (provided)

- broad categories (provided)

- literal

- interaction

- attributes

- concept

Seperated by semi-colons, all keywords would then be added to one field in the database. The process would then be repeated for each image. Please see the attached sample image and spreadsheet for more information of what is required.

The amount of key words required will vary from image to image, but typically you may expect to create or capture around 65 words per image. From experience, this can take approximately 10 minutes or less.

Total images to be keyworded will be approximately 2000 initially and the project would need to be completed within 2 months. This is calculated on an average of 50 images a day and 250 per week, although, if mutually agreed and quality is not affected, a faster rate would be considered.

Subject to successful keywording and business needs, the project could develop into a long term requirement, with future images requiring keywording on an ongoing or adhoc basis.

Clearly the successful applicant would need to demonstrate the ability to provide appropriate key words for an image. This would be established with the provision of a number of keyworded images as examples and three trial images to key word, for which no money would be paid. These will be sent by email together with a spreadsheet to interested applicants offering a competitive rate. Further to that, based on the rate bid, the relevance and coverage of the keywording, the best applicant(s) will be offered participation in the project.

Once the project has started, the images requiring keywording and Excel data would be made available to download from a web site at defined intervals. Initially, an updated keyword spreadsheet would be required to be emailed back on a daily basis, for feedback/guidance to be provided as necessary. Any amendments required would be expected to be made within the agreed cost per image, i.e. no extra cost will be provided for amendments.

After the first week, if the quality of the keywording is acceptable, only requiring minor changes and amendments in general, then provision of new images and spreadsheet data to keyword would be made available and return expected on a weekly basis. A weekly review would be made to check on keywording quality, with any feedback and amendments required prior to the commencement of the following week's batch.

Clearly the task will be open to some level of subjectivity. However, it would be hoped that the required quality of the keywording would be established through ongoing feedback and guidance. However, if the quality or quantity of the work provided is deemed unacceptable at any point, then the project will be terminated immediately. At the same time, if the project needs to be stopped for any reason, or the applicant no longer wishes to continue the project, then the agreement can be terminated at any time. In either event, the agreed rate will be paid for each image keyworded acceptably up to the point of the termination of the project.

Payment will be made once a week, by Paypal in US dollars, based on the number of images acceptably keyworded that week. Bids therefore would be welcome based on a cost per image in that currency.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
