We’re looking for a few big, splashy photos that help tell the global Mozilla Webmaker story. Got a favorite you don’t see included below? Please post your ideas as comments to this post — or tweet them to me through @OpenMatt.
Places to look:
- Our current Webmaker Flickr favorites
- Maker Party search on Flickr
- Amira’s Maker Party stories and spreadsheet
- the Webmaker blog and Tumblr
- scattered across the interwebs…
Splashy, diverse and global. With a story attached.
The photos can also be combined with a bit of extra data — like the place, some of the details, and maybe a quote or sentence to help bring them to life. We’re looking for photos that are:
- Diverse and global. We want to tell a story about Webmaker around the world.
- Work in high resolution. They’ll need to look good at least 600 or 800 pixels wide.
- Human. Emphasizing that this is a global community getting together to teach and learn the web.
- With a big of context or a quote. Just a sentence or two.
Check out these below, and let us know if you have ideas for more…

“At our first Webmaker party, the students were seeing a laptop for the first time in their life. I decided to go there regularly and teach them how to use computers.”
–Mahboob ur Rahman, Webmaker Mentor
“Watching, understanding then adopting and changing is quite similar to the web — where you look at code, understand it, and change it, bringing about something new.”
“I hosted an all-girl Maker Party in Manila where women can learn how they can teach the wonders of the Web.”

“I love sharing knowledge and skills. I love Webmaker because it helps me teach about the web to more people, especially students.”

“Webmaker shows how malleable and sharable the web is — helping people not only use tech, but also become creators of it.”
“We’re learning how to not only use the web, but also how to make and share it.”
“We remixed our favorite stories using digital media and the web.”
–Story Maker party, Brooklyn
Popcorn Hack Jam, Toronto, Canada — July 2013
“We went from watching videos to creating them. It’s the chance to learn a new skill in a project-based way with other people. It’s about making, experimenting, and playing around!”
The image above is from Mexico — does anyone have any additional context or quotes for it?
It would be great to have a quote from a Mozilla Rep explaining how Webmaker is helping them do their work.
Localization? Plus we also want an image and quote that helps the localization and translation story behind Webmaker right now. Got something? Please let us know.
“We made paper circuits, stop-motion animations, digital beats, web pages, digital posters and more!”
