BowerBird wants to ensure anyone who can download images for your projects has gone through a verification process. This means that we've checked they are associated with a publication and are genuinely interested in publishing your work.
This ensures that when someone downloads images from your project, it will most likely result in you getting published.
Verified Journalists have been manually assessed by the BowerBird team to ensure they meet our strict requirements and standards.

If you would like someone who isn't a verified journalist to be able to download images, you will need to give them access using Access Control.
