On October 28th the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center will invite everyone in the city to take a picture.
Participants then select their favorite image and send it to PPAC. The images can be painstakingly planned or a spur of the moment decision; regardless, PPAC will print and hang every single photo for an exhibition showcasing a day in the life of Philadelphia.
Pictures can be of any subject and can be taken with any kind of camera, even a cell phone! From point and shoot users to professionals, we want everyone!
Philly Photo Day is free and open to the public. In its inaugural year in 2010, PPAC received nearly 350 pictures. We plan to double that number this year through media sponsorship, advertisements, social media platforms and through word-of-mouth.
While Philly Photo Day is free to participate in, it is far from free to execute. What we are asking for in this Kickstarter campaign is just a small portion of the overall cost of the event. Specifically, these funds will get the show up on the wall. $3,500 covers the cost of ink, photo paper and space rental for the whole run of this show.
But we can raise more than $3,500 too! Any donation beyond our initial goal will be used to cover the costs of advertising Philly Photo Day and executing the opening reception. Your donation helps to ensure this is an all-inclusive community-wide event.
