Knipsclub is a digital platform on which children can publish their own photos and share them with others within a moderated community.

Thanks to its animated films, photo tips and tools for image editing, Knipsclub offers the opportunity for children to learn how they can realise their own photo ideas. Within the moderated community, uploaded photos can also be commented on and evaluated. As a result, users are also informed about how to deal with and conduct themselves on the internet and, especially, learn about Web 2.0.

This online content allows children to share creativity on a secure and appealing platform: making pictures and dealing with photographs is a basic media experience. Knipsclub is designed for children and is an attractive offer with playful elements.
