Photo Day: October 9, 2015
Exhibition Opens: November 12, 2015


Philly Photo Day, where photographers of all sorts are invited to snap images of what life is like in Greater Philadelphia over a 24-hour period, returns for its sixth year in 2015.

This picture-perfect event is open to people of all skill levels, whether you’re a pro with a high-end camera or a civilian with an iPhone in your pocket.

To participate, just snap a photo on October 9 and upload it to the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center‘s website by October 14.

Every image that’s submitted will be included in an exhibition that will truly represent our city. The final project will be on display at PPAC starting on November 12.

Plus, the three best images will have the honor of being featured on SEPTA platform posters.

If you want to get technical about it, the following eleven counties are included under the “Greater Philadelphia” umbrella: New Castle County in Delaware; Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Mercer, and Salem Counties in New Jersey; and Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania.

To help your efforts, consider attending one of the many free, three-hour hands-on photography workshops taking place throughout the day.
