Photo project wants to capture the world in a day

Last year's "Life in a Day" asked people around the world to submit videos shot on July 24, 2010, to be compiled into a film that would show what the world looked like on that day.

Similarly, is asking for photographers the world over to submit photos taken on May 15, 2012 to be included in an exhibition and book.

According to the website, "All images will be displayed online for you and everyone to explore. Some of them will be selected for a book, A Day In the World, to be published in November 2012, others shown in digital exhibitions. Every single one will be saved for future research and inspiration. The photos will never be used for commercial purposes. They will always be treated with care and respect. Should your photo be selected to feature in a book, we will try to contact you beforehand."

The site also offers ideas for what type of images people should shoot, how to upload them and additional insight as to why this project matters.

It's an interesting concept and perhaps a little easier for the average Joe to participate in than having to submit a filmed piece of work (I assume more people are comfortable with a point-and-shoot camera than a video camera but maybe that's just me).

Will you submit any photos? It would certainly be exciting to have a few personal snapshots be part of something so big.
