Philly Photo Day.

On October 10, 2014, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) will hold the fifth annual Philly Photo Day, a day of educational outreach and engagement when PPAC invites everyone in the city to take a photograph using a phone or camera. The only restriction is that it is taken in Philadelphia on that day. PPAC then prints and hangs every single image – thousands – for a vast exhibition presenting an uncensored reflection of Philadelphia from countless of diverse lenses.

This year photographs will be displayed in a gallery exhibition in November and December, billboards through out the city, and a groundbreaking inaugural outdoor exhibition in the newly revitalized Dilworth Park at City Hall in Spring of 2015.
