Your report should include the following information:

- At least three comments (50 to 100 words) from team members on their experience working on this project and interviewing elderly people.

Using the Heritage Detectives website

- Please fill in the Optional Information box with the team leader's name and email address. Don't worry it's for internal use only and won't be published on the Heritage Detectives website

- If you think your project doesn't fit in one of the categories suggested on the Heritage Detectives Website, email

- In order to submit your report, you'll need to pinpoint a location. Try to make it as precise as possible. If your project mentions more than one location, choose the most important one for your project.

For pictures, remember

- that to allow us to publish them in Young Post, we need high resolution images. The Heritage Detectives website on which you should submit your reports and images won't allow you to upload images bigger than 2MB. So please resize your images so that they are between 1.8MB to 2MB.

- to add a caption which names everyone in the photo

- to tell us who took the photo/s

- if the photos are given by a third party, tell us who they are, and what they want the photo credit to say. Eg: The Anderson brothers, from left, Wayne, Brett and Craig, pose outside their home in Klerksdorp South Africa.

Include similar captions and credit information for any additional material you are submitting (video, recording, illustration, etc)
