About the Student Showcase
Do you have a talent you want to share with the world? Are you the next Jay-Z or is your band the next Parlotones? Are you a photographer, or is your jewellery business just starting to take off? Whatever it is you do, we want to hear about it! And you can earn Yebo Credits for telling us!
If you’re not particularly artistically talented but you want to share a great story about what happened on campus last week, let us know! We want to hear from you, student journalists and reporters, about what’s happening in your part of the world. (Also, being published online looks great on your cv!)
As with all things, there are a few simple rules. We’ve kept them to a minimum to allow you to express your creativity, but still ensure that everyone gets what on earth you’re talking about.
- Keep it clean. No offensive language, please. No pictures or videos that can be even vaguely interpreted as pornographic. If you wouldn’t be comfortable with letting your little sister see it, then don’t send it.
- Use correct grammar. And spellcheck. We’ll help you out with editing etc. before we publish, but at least we need to know what you’re saying in order to do so.
- For musicians, we recommend first uploading your audio files to Soundcloud and then embedding them in your Yebo Students showcase article…e.g. [soundcloud url="http://soundcloud.com/meat-katie/meat-katie-vs-friends-of-mine-are-you-looking"]. See instructions for getting the soundcloud link.
- Featured images should be greater than 620px in width to avoid quality loss. Don’t make them too big though. Images with an aspect ratio of 16:9 work best. Attachments should be no more than 2mb.
- Make sure if you use any images or sound clips that you are either the owner of the media (i.e. you took the picture or made the sound clip yourself) or that you have copyright permission to use it. No grabbing pictures off Google Image. That ish is just not kosher.
As much as we love you and want you to express your creativity, if you send in lazy work, or work that we feel doesn’t meet publishing standards, we’ll send it back and ask you to work on it a bit more. This isn’t school, but likewise we want your website to have interesting content of good quality. I’m sure you understand.
So, what are you waiting for? Submit content. Do it. Do it now. Then tell all your friends. And your grandma. But you may have to teach her how to use the internet first.
