Current Photo Challenges:Not Quite Right, Near | Far , Photo in Photo

Group Description

Join The Glocal Project and help us create the world's largest contributive artwork. This is a group for photo-innovators - people who are moving the boundaries of what can be done with image by hacking, experimenting and creating. Together, we're building the foundation for a major art peice that will be shown both online and in galleries, museums and festivals around the world.

We have built a set of software, hardware, and conceptual toolkits designed to help you rethink the way you take photos. We are also running innovative weekly photochallenges that will allow members around the world to explore new ideas and come together to discuss art, photography, and culture.

We ask our members to post photos that are unique and innovative - we reserve the right to remove images that do not fit with the project goals. All contributors to The Glocal Project will be fully credited - this is a chance for all of our members to be a recognized part of a high-profile international artwork.

Group Rules


1. Please read the discussion thread about setting the license on your images to Creative Commons - this is the only way your contributions can be used in the Glocal Project artwork. Eventually, images not set with a CC license will be removed from the pool. Photos with signatures will also be removed.

Also, images must be tagged "glocalproject" to show up in the final artwork!

2. If you contribute to the project your work becomes an integral part of the artwork shown in galleries and festivals around the world! All submissions to the Glocal Project will be fully credited and never used for anything even resembling a profit. You are free to remove your images from the pool (and the project) at any time.

3. Visit The Glocal Project Website or read our information thread for more information about the project.
