Instructions for Posting a Google Doodles Waymark:
Criteria 1: The object/location you want to waymark must be the same object/location depicted as a Google Doodle. For example: if you want to post a waymark with the Google Doodle of the Golden Gate Bride, San Francisco, California, USA, the waymark has to be at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, USA in the real world!

Criteria 2: The object/location you want to waymark must be directly related to the topic of Google Doodle. It doesn't matter where it is located in the world. For example: if you want to post a waymark with the Google Doodle of Goethe's 226th Birthday, the waymark in the real world can be the house where he was born, his grave or any monument dedicated to him! Please be creative! If you use this Criteria, you have to describe the relation between the Google Doodle and the real world location in your Waymark description.

For both criterias you will need at least two pictures of the object/location. One should be a general view and one should be a closeup view of the object/location you want to waymark. More pictures are always welcome! Please add some infomations about the object/location and, if you use criteria 2, in which way it is directly related to the topic of the Google Doodle. If there is a plaque at the object please include the text to your description. Please add a picture of the plaque to your waymark's gallery.

The Google Doodle waymarked item must be permanent and open to the public (pieces found in secure areas of airports, train stations, etc., are not open to the public and not waymarkable). Please no paintings in a museum or an advertisement at a wall. Please cite your sources. The bulk of the text in the long description must be left black. If the post is not in English, it would be very nice to have an English translation - though this is not required. While the criteria for approval of a Google Doodle Waymark should be clear, the decision of the leader/officers will be final.

Dublicates: Sometimes a real world location fits to more than one Google Doodle and the other way round: one Google Doodle fits to several real world locations. This is no problem! But please: Only one Google Doodle Waymark for the same real world location by the same person. You may post a waymark of a particular location that ANOTHER person has posted if you use a DIFFERENT Google Doodle. You can also use a Google Doodle more than once if you use ANOTHER real world location. This will open up some more creative possibilities.

Please do not add a picture of the Google Doodle to your waymark. This is for copyright reasons. But you have to enter the URL to the Google Doodle at the variables.

Naming convention: Please name your waymark in a way that makes it clear what your are waymarking. For example Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco, CA, USA or Goethe Monument - Vienna, Austria.

Last but not least: Please be creative! If you're not sure your real world location will fit the requirements of this category, feel free to contact one of the officers and ask.
