Curator qualifications

As a judge and author on the following paper: BMC Ecology image competition: the winning images (BMC Ecology 2013, 13:6 doi:10.1186/1472-6785-13-6) I would like to become a full curator in order to submit a number of these excellent ecology images to EoL. The species in these photographs (plus background text) have been verified by researchers in the relevant fields, who have also provided ecological information (e.g. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bmc_ecology/8591713625/in/pool-imaging_ecology). All these images are released as CC-BY-2.0 images. I have also been attempting to solve a small EoL technical issue with Cyndy Parr (e.g http://eol.org/forums/8/topics/21), who is likely to be able to vouch for me.
Curation scope
Evolutionary genetics/phylogenetics, statistics, programming using the EoL API.
