FMoPA Presents Project: One Day Tampa Bay 2012
The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) wants to create a photographic time capsule of one day in the life of Tampa Bay. Project: One Day Tampa Bay 2012 will take place on Saturday, September 22, from 12 Midnight-11:59 p.m. All photographers, professional or amateur are invited to take part by taking photographs depicting life in Tampa Bay. Photos can be of any subject.
One hundred photos will be selected to for the full color The FMoPA Project: One Day Tampa Bay 2012 book. The photos will be arranged in sequential order to reflect the day. “The project will be a yearly event, and we hope it will become a photographic time capsule of life in the Tampa Bay area,” explained Joyce M. Zevola, museum manager. “Imagine in 10 years seeing all of the books side by side and reflecting on the changes the Tampa Bay area has experienced not only in the city but in the lives of the Tampa Bay residents,” added Zevola.
Participants are asked to register. A fee of $15 will be charged, and participants will receive a participation badge that will give discounts at area restaurants for the day, and $10 off the book purchase and free admission to the book launch in November.
Photographers are asked to take high resolution photos and submit them by Saturday, October 6, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the time the photo was taken, the location and the subject. Selected images will be announced on Friday, November 2. One lucky photographer will have their photo selected as the cover of the book. “We hope to receive images of people and their activities from a little league baseball game to a major sports event. One of our board members is getting married that day and we hope to get an image from his wedding,” said Zevola.
