Tips on writing descriptions

These are not requirements - but are great tips to make your submission as useful as possible.


Spelling & Grammar

Because Geograph is used as an educational resource it's important to consider factual and grammatical correctness. This means you may receive suggested amendments to your images in this regard. Please note this is done in the interest of making the site as useful as possible and not to highlight mistakes for the sake of it. Don't worry if written English isn't your strong point; you're not alone!

Finally note that descriptions aren't final. You can amend them at any time after they have been submitted. It is even possible to leave the description box blank at the time the image is submitted and add the description later.
