We have to make it easier for participants to upload the photos and
release them under CC. Commons upload tool is too complicated for a
novice. Flickr copyrights photos by default. People forget to set the
copyright to CC or tag them correctly.
My suggestion would be to setup a Facebook fan page and allow user
uploads. We can add a text on the page mentioning all uploads will be
automatically treated as CC. This is similar to text that appears
below Wikipedia edit box.

Count me in! But coordinating something like this
at the national
be easy. Ahh, this is exciting :)
While emulating Britain Loves Wikipedia and involving museums and
cultural institutions will be a huge task, using online social media
will be much easier.
Articles on famous colleges like NMIMS, popular dishes like Dal Baati
and notable companies like Indian Express Group don't have a
photograph! There are a number of young Indian internet users on
Facebook and Twitter. We just want them to catch a snap of their
college, company, the food they eat... That shouldn't be difficult.
All we need to do is reach out to them. This can be done through
Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, blogs and other media.
