Philly Photo Day – October 26!

Philly Photo Day 2012 will take place on Friday, October 26 — help capture a day in the life of Philadelphia!

On this day, everyone in the city is invited to take a photograph of whatever you like.

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) will print and hang every single picture for a unique exhibition. The exhibition opens on December 6th at PPAC. Check out this video to see what local WHYY radio personality Marty Moss-Coane has to say about this year’s event.

This year, the PPAC is also reaching out to local community centers, providing cameras and teaching artists to a wide range of people.  These artists will teach photography basics like lighting and composition and help participants select their best photos and submit them to PPAC, bringing broader access to the community.

Select images will be placed on SEPTA buses, trains and even on billboards for an entire month.  One of those images could be yours!

There are three rules to Philly Photo Day:

1. The photograph MUST be taken on October 26, 2012.

2. The photograph MUST be taken in Philadelphia.

3. You may only submit ONE photograph per person.

You’ll upload your photograph right onto the PPAC website, on October 26.

Enjoy —  I can’t wait to see the results!
