Snapshot of the World

On May 2, 2010 at exactly 15:00 hours (U.T.C.), the world will…

We don’t know yet. But the New York Times is offering a pretty cool opportunity for us to find out. They’ve extended a global invitation for amateurs and pros alike to take out their cameras, and attempt to “capture this singular instant in whatever way you think would add to a marvelous global mosaic; a Web-built image of one moment in time across the world.” (nytimes.com) Once you have taken your photograph (and they ask that you do it as close to the time as possible!), you then upload the image to the Times link that will go live at 15:00 hours (U.T.C.). This is not a photo competition. EVERY photograph will be hosted on their site for the entire world to see. Still, the LENS blog will highlight their favorite snaps.

” What matters more than technique is the thought behind the picture, because you’ll only be sending us one. So please do think beforehand about where you will want to be and what you will want to focus on. Here are the general topics:

Religion
Play
Nature and the Environment
Family
Work
Arts and Entertainment
Money and the Economy
Community
Social Issues”

Seems pretty inclusive.

The e-party is sponsored by the LENS blog on the New York Times Website. Definitely check it out! Read the official invitation at lens.blogs.nytimes.com
