On October 9th, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center invites you and EVERYONE in the 11 counties of Greater Philadelphia to be an artist for the day. Share your vision with thousands of others so together we can create a portrait of everything beautiful, historic, weird, and amazing about Greater Philadelphia. Join in the fun!
Show us your family, your rooftop, your best handstand or your best friends - anything - EVERYTHING! Share your story - Celebrate Greater Philadelphia. What inspires you? When you send us your best picture of the day, we will print and exhibit it in a huge gallery exhibition, a book, and online along with thousands of photographs by thousands of people like you.
Everyone is included PLUS three winning photographs will be chosen for city-wide display on regional rail posters!

Risks and challenges
This is the 6th year of Philly Photo Day and we know that together with your help we can do it! The exhibition, workshops, transit posters, photo-wrapped car, and many other aspects of the event will take lots of community partners, and people like you collaborating to make photo magic happen for thousands of people in and around Philadelphia.
PPAC’s biggest challenge this year comes in 2 parts. One will be getting the word out and encouraging all 11 counties of Greater Philadelphia to take a photo. The other is printing, exhibiting and publishing the THOUSANDS of additional photographs we hope to receive by including the whole region from New Jersey, to Eastern PA, to Delaware!
This massive undertaking will require an extra push and more community participation to make it happen. We are working with art centers and community groups in each of the 11 counties to help make it happen, and with the support of PNC Arts Alive, we now have a PR firm to spread the word about Greater Philly Photo Day.
You can help too - tell your friends to join in and take a picture with you on October 9th!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
