IA INSTA-CURATOR GUIDELINES

Thanks for signing up! The purpose our Instagram account is the share and promote the diversity of our members and the profession/work of interpretation more broadly. It is also an opportunity to network and meet other members and professionals. Here are some guidelines and tips to get you started:

  1. Log in using the username & password provided.
  2. Do not change or adjust any of the Instagram settings.
  3. On your first post please introduce yourself and provide any info about what we might expect to see/experience/learn during the week.
  4. When posting photos: 
    • preferably, only post photos you have taken yourself.
    • if you’re reposting other people’s photos ensure you credit them.
    • photos can be existing ones.
    • avoid posting stock footage or memes.
    • they can be photos of your work, your weekend, your garden, your pets, your holidays, your hobbies, hilarious signs, gorgeous scenery or street art. Anything really, as long as it relates to interpretation, so get creative!
    • always include a short caption with your photo. Remember, Instagram is about image sharing, NOT information sharing.
    • remember you are representing IA so consider how your posts might reflect on the organisation.
