To add images of insects taken during National Moth Week, upload them like normal but put "nationalmothweek" in the Remarks or Identifier field. Images don't have to be of moths! Note that these will not appear immediately in search results but will eventually as the search function picks them up.

Images of people, places, and non-bugs do not need this tag identifier since they will all be posted directly to Images tab of the page you are currently reading. To add a picture of National Moth Week 2020 activity, go to the Images tab and then click "add image".
