A Visual Diary: On July 1, 2019, I...
THE PROMPT FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT IS SIMPLE: SHARE YOUR TWO BEST PHOTOS TAKEN ON JULY 1, 2019. If your submission does NOT meet this one assignment criteria, you will NOT be selected for the final story. Deadline is July 2, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
I hope you will also recognize these visual diary assignments as an opportunity. What I love about these monthly visual diary assignments is that anyone can participate and every community member has the same chance to receive an Editor’s Favorite, Editor’s Note, and be published in the final story. Whether you are a professional or an amateur, these assignments require you to submit new photos. However, there are too many Your Shot photographers submitting images that do not meet the one prompt for this assignment.
To reward those that follow the prompt of the assignment, one community member published in the final story will receive a portfolio review. I will use one of two ways to verify the date your photo was taken:
- In the photo details section, the “Date Taken” field reveals your submitted image was made on July 1, 2019.
- If the “Date Taken” field does not appear in your photo details section, your submitted image must also include the following language in your caption: This photo was taken on (EXACT DATE – month, day, year) in (CITY, COUNTRY). By including this language in your caption, I am trusting that the photo was taken on the date you write.
The submission deadline is July 2, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. ET. See you on July 1st.
