USA Rice Launches Flickr Account: Get Up Close and Personal with USA Rice

Feb 27, 2015

ARLINGTON, VA -- Ready for your close up?  The USA Rice Federation is launching its Flickr account, a popular website designed to optimize the process of sharing photos publicly.
 
"Flickr is an effective way to organize pictures into photo albums based on location and event," explained Michael Klein, USA Rice's vice president for marketing, communications, and domestic promotion.
 
"We're going to provide a structured platform for USA Rice members, the media, and nutrition professionals to access and download high resolution images that depict the many dimensions of the rice industry."
 
USA Rice's Flickr account debuts with an extensive array of pictures from the recent Government Affairs Conference and will be frequently updated with pictures of USA Rice conferences and events.  Flickr will also serve as an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the rice industry that will keep our members informed about everything that is happening at USA Rice.
 
Klein added he's looking forward to including images of rice production to help tell the industry's story, and members are encouraged to submit pictures from their rice operations for inclusion.
 
To submit images for consideration, email Colleen Klemczewski at cklem@usarice.com.  A link to the Flickr account will be added to the USA Rice website in an effort to make it easily accessible to USA Rice members and the public.
