Contributing & Contact

Donation & Digitization Program

The Archive gladly accepts any material that furthers our mission in providing access to historic Korean images. All donated material is scanned to U.S. National Archives standards, properly stored for posterity, and published on our website where relevant.  As a part of our digitization process we provide HD digital scans of any donated material to their original owners free of charge, giving donors continued direct access to their images.  We currently accept & process:

  • 35mm slides
  • Negative film
  • Film reels (8mm, 16mm, 35mm)
  • Photo prints
Please fill out a Donation Form if you are interested in donating, and we will quickly be in contact to learn more about your images, how they will best fit in the Archive, and provide mailing instructions.

Monetary Donations

We accept monetary donations via PayPal (one-time donations) and Patreon (monthly donations) to help cover the Archive's expenses.  Donations are used towards:

  • Website, domain & email hosting
  • Image processing software
  • Hard drives & cloud storage
  • Archiving material

Identification & Volunteering

We welcome any additional knowledge visitors can share regarding images on our website. 
Please fill out and submit an Image Identification form with information you'd like to contribute, and we will update our records.

Image Licensing

Though Korean Image Archive is not a stock photo business, some of our images are available to license for commercial and non-commercial use.  Please email us with Photo IDs or the type of image you are interested in licensing and how they might be used, and we will respond as soon as possible.  Images in our "Commercial Images" gallery and Digital Repository are not available for licensing.
