365 Days; 365 Photos. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then we’ve got 365,000 words to tell OUR story!
What is Project 365?
Beginning January 1 and continuing for the entire year, there will be a new photo from Armstrong County posted here every day. 365 is a big number, so we’re going to need your help. You can submit your photos of Armstrong County for consideration. Read through our submission guide, and start uploading!
Why Project 365?
To capture a real sense of place in Armstrong County – who lives here, what are we about, what do we stand for, and what should everyone know about us?
How Do I Get Involved?
Here are some tips for participating:
- Take Your Camera Everywhere – Yes, everywhere. Get in the habit. Grocery stores, restaurants, parties, work, and school.
- Vary Your Themes – Try to capture the day’s events in a single photo. Perform photographic experiments. Take a photo of someone important to you, an event you attended, your favorite place to visit, or a new place you discovered. Take a photo of something that made you smile. (This is, after all, supposed to be fun. And it won’t be on the final, we promise.)
- Tell A Story – Use your photo description to explain what’s going on in each photograph. It’ll help you remember down the road, and it gives readers following along a better appreciation of why you took the photo you did.
- Submit - Submit your photos to us. Include a short, descriptive caption and a 50 word or less description that answers the question: How does the person/place/thing depicted in this photo represent something special about Armstrong County? Submit a Photo Now
Your photo may be selected as a “Photo of the Month”, making your photo eligible for a grand prize (to be determined).
