Welcome to our new website!

You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

Flickr photo groups

Submit your photos

Our Flickr photo groups are about sharing what makes Southwark a great place to live in, work in and enjoy. The groups may invite topics covering the borough as a whole, or may ask for photos on a more specific topic.

By joining this group you agree to the Terms and Conditions set out on this page.


In short the terms state that:

  • You must own the photo you are sending us and have full copyright and consent (e.g. from any individual featured in your photo) for use in the group.
  • By posting your photo to this group you give us permission to use the photo without any cost, fee, liability or charge to Southwark Council on the council website and in other publicity materials and work. Where we use an image we will endeavour to credit it to the photographer.
  • Photos submitted to the group will be moderated by Southwark Council. Any photo that breaches Southwark Council’s policies or conflicts with its legal obligations will be removed.

Terms and conditions

The following terms and conditions apply. Southwark Council reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time.

We reserve the right to moderate all images and comments submitted to the Flickr groups managed by Southwark Council for any reason. In particular, any submission that we consider:

  • to be obscene, offensive or otherwise unsuitable in any way; or
  • conflicts with Southwark Council policy or any legal obligation placed on it;

will not be included.

When moderating all submissions to the Flickr groups, Southwark Council will also consider its duty to have regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and to advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between people who have a “protected characteristic” (such as disabled people, people of different ages and people from different ethnic and religious backgrounds) and those who do not.

If you require further information, please contact the Southwark Council Digital Communications team at ecomms@southwark.gov.uk

Comments and images posted on Flickr and images submitted must not defame, compromise the trade secrets or violate the copyright or other intellectual property rights of any third party. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Southwark Council harmless from any fees, claims, losses or liabilities based on a violation of the foregoing representation.

Southwark Council reserves the right to cancel any membership from any Southwark Council operated Flickr group without prior consent or notice. Any photos that have been previously submitted (by the member/s whose membership has been cancelled) shall remain subject to these Terms and Conditions.

By submitting a photograph, you are confirming that the photograph was taken by you and that you have the express consent of all individuals featured in the photograph for it to be posted on the website and made publicly available. By sending us a photograph which features any individual under the age of 18, you are also confirming that you have the express consent of their parent or legal guardian. 

Please do not send us any photographs unless you are sure that you have this consent. Please note that should a complaint arise or consent be withdrawn at any time we reserve the right to remove the corresponding photo from the website.

By sending a photograph taken on private property, or of any subject matter in which a third party owns rights, you are confirming that you have the permission of the property or rights owner as appropriate to take the photograph, posted on the website and made publicly available. 

Please do not send us any photographs if you are unsure of whether third party rights subsist or unless you are sure that you have the requisite permissions. Please note that should a complaint arise or consent be withdrawn at any time we reserve the right to remove the corresponding photo from the website.
