where do I put resources (images, audio files) when I wrote Python program?

I write a Python program. It will contain some images (in .png format), some
audio files (as .ogg) etc. Now I think where should my installer put these
files and how should I access them. What is the normal Python way of doing
that? I think about puting these files in /usr/share/myprogram and then
reading it the normal way (so the path "/usr/share/myprogram" would be just
hardwired in my program). Is it the way one usually does it in Python
program or is there any more sofisticated way?
