* Project documentation: Please provide as much detail as possible. Items of interest include when it was built, how long it took, materials used, what tools/processes were used, special problems encountered and how overcome, working features and functions, overall size (length/width/height), weight. If you are the builder, please answer the questions that most people ask you about the project.

** Builder documentation: Items of interest include the builder's training and background and his approach to a project (does he draw detailed plans or visualize each part in his head, does he have a lot of sophisticated tools or a few basic ones, how many hours a day does he work on a project, etc.). Date of birth, schooling, work experience (whether related or not related to project), goals for future projects and personal thoughts on craftsmanship are also good items to include. If details about the builder's shop and the tools used are available, please include them as well.

Photo documentation

Digital: Please provide the highest quality photos of the project possible.  Photos in electronic format are preferred (digital camera or scans). Please send in .jpg or .tif format if possible on diskette (PC), 100 MB Zip Disk (PC), CD-ROM or by e-mail to Photos should be at least 600 x800 pixels in size, 72 dpi. Larger files are OK.

Prints, negatives or transparancies: If photos are in print, negative or transparency form, please mail them to the Foundation for scanning. They will be returned after scanning if you provide a postage paid return envelope. Do not write on the front or back of photos. If notes must be attached, number each photo in the upper left-hand corner of the back in a small number using a pen like a “Sharpie” that can mark on photos without smearing. As an alternative, use a small “post-it” note attached to the back of the photo with a reference number. Attach a sheet with explanations of each photo referring to the photo number. Another good method of organization is to place each photo in a separate white envelope and write the details on the envelope.

Text files

Preferred format for all text files: Microsoft Word (PC) or e-mail (Word files can be sent as e-mail attachments.) Handwritten or typed copy is also acceptable, but electronic files are preferred as it saves retyping.
