A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS – INTRODUCING A 12 MONTH PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT TO GENERATE AWARENESS AND MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES AROUND THE WORLD
…a collection of photographs created and shared by a group of photographers; amateurs and professionals
Every picture tells a story – what is yours?
Each month, starting in May, 2015 we will be hosting a year-long photographic project to generate awareness about various causes around the world. Creative, Colourful, and Black and White photos from professional and amateur photographers – all styles and all issues welcome. Contribute every month or just once, or twice.
Gillian and I will be collaborating on the cause of ‘Animal Welfare.’
Photographs must not show any person(s) or animal(s) to be under duress; in real-life scenarios of danger. Any photo of an animal or person that seems to be in distress or an unsafe situation will not be included, and the submission will be forwarded to authorities.
The idea is to create images that draw the viewer’s attention and peak their curiosity, generating awareness for your cause by captivating your audience. Sadly, the vivid and graphic images of ‘real-life’ situations are too much for most people. They shut down and look away. We want to create a platform where people will take notice and learn how they can help, how they can become a part of the movement. Be creative!
SUBMISSIONS AND GALLERY FEATURE
Submit your photo by email, no later than the last Friday of the month prior. In the subject line include the month for which you are contributing and in as few words as possible, the name of your cause (i.e. May – Domestic Violence). Each month we will create a gallery of submissions and share photographs relating to your chosen cause, based on the theme ‘Sins & Virtues.’ If you are a blogger or photographer with a website, please include a link and I will happily share.
