On May 15th, the creators of A Day are asking that we all pick up our cameras and capture our daily life. Their aim is to inspire perspectives on humankind, today and tomorrow.
This is an event for everybody everywhere, whether you’re a professional photographer or an amateur one, even if you just capture the odd shot with your cellphone. The more people that get involved the more interesting the project becomes.
From May 15th to May 22nd you’ll be able to upload your shots to their website. To make sure they don’t get lost in the database there are three categories to upload to: Home, Work And Connections, with subcategories for each.
You could photograph your house, your newly decorated living room, or what you’re having for dinner.
You could photograph your colleagues, the commute to work, or a view of your desk.
You could photograph your family, your friends or how you spend your spare time.
Anything that reflects your life on May 15th is perfect for the project.
All the images uploaded will be displayed online for everyone to explore, some will be selected for a book “A Day In the World” and others will be displayed in digital exhibitions. Every single one will be saved for future generations as an insight into what life was like on May 15th 2012.
You can find out everything else you need to know about this awesome worldwide project over on the A Day website :)
