Photographs Wanted

Old Archival Pictures

Such pictures often complement descriptions of costumes and performers.

Home Page Picture Suggestions

The picture on the Folk Play Home Page is changed from time to time. Although the picture is often drawn from articles in Traditional Drama Forum or a recent seasonal picture gallery, we also encourage submissions of images from other websites. Full acknowledgement is given, and a hyperlink is provided to the original source website. We give preference to images of traditional performers and long-standing revival groups. Home Page pictures must be in landscape format.

Please send photographs by email as file attachments to the webmaster. It would be appreciated if you would send a preliminary message first, warning of your submission, so that your attachments are not mistaken for computer viruses!
