Tomorrow is Greater Philly Photo Day
Get your camera ready, Philadelphia. Tomorrow is Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC)’s Greater Philly Photo Day, an initiative to capture what 24 hours living in Philadelphia looks like in photo form (and a way to have one of your pics included in a real-life exhibition—no matter what your skill level).
Taking part is easy-breezy. Just snap a photo between midnight and 11:59 pm on Friday, October 9th, and upload it to PPAC’s website. The only rules are that you have to capture the photo on October 9, 2015, and you have to have taken it within one of the 11 counties making up the Greater Philadelphia Region. You have until October 14th to upload it onto PPAC’s site here.
Once PPAC has all submissions, they’ll print out the photos and include every single one of them in an exhibition at their space in the Crane Arts Building on November 12th.
You don’t have to be an amazing photographer to join in, just be a Philadelphian—or in Philadelphia on October 9th. The best part of the whole thing is the variety of shots they’ll get—from the blurry selfies at LOVE Park (go easy on those, people) to some arty fall foliage shot from a trail in the Wissahickon. Just be you, even if that means sending in a cheesy selfie like the one above.
Feel free to share your photos and look at others’ throughout the day by using the hashtag #PhillyPhotoDay on Twitter or Instagram. See you there!
