Object Not Found is soon to become open to the public. Currently we're Accepting members on an invite-only basis, but if you are really keen to get involved, drop us a line and I'm sure we won't say no.
We're opening the site up to anyone with found objects to post them to the site.
This can be done in a number of ways:
If you have only one or two images and wish to submit them, then you can upload these to the site via the "Send Us An Image" link at the bottom of this page. Please include a brief description of the image and a bit of context as to where and when you found it (if you can remember - I often can't).
You may also wish to become a member of the site if you have more than a couple of images, or if you would like to become a regular contributor. Sign up using our login form below and follow the prompts. All new Users are moderated so please be patient while we activate your account (generally this won't take more than 24 hours).
There are a couple of (fairly loose) rules as to what sort of content we're looking for.
Generally, we're looking for images that have been found on the street or in some sort of public environment. If you bought the image, it probably doesn't count as found. Likewise if the images are a family heirloom of some sort, then there's a genealogy at play there and the images don't really count as found. But there's always exceptions - for instance if you find some photos hidden away in the back of your grandmother's photo album of some dashing young man that is not your grandfather behind other fairly innocuous images, then obviously this is kind of interesting and would count as a candidate for the site. Basically we're looking for images and notes where the origin can't be traced and the story and surrounding context has been lost.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in contact with us. Once you upload content, you can modify and delete this content at a later date, but the content will be live as soon as you press submit, so try and make your posts fairly publishable, and most of all have fun and enjoy and welcome to the community.
