Bring out your smartphone cameras and dust-off your digital point-and-shoot! It's time for the Genealogy Photo Challenge for World Photo Day 2014. Once again, The Family Curator challenges genealogists and family historians to celebrate World Photo Day by combining the past and present in a single photograph -- recreate an old photo, merge past and present Dear Photograph style, or present a Then and Now retrospective.
Participate by posting your photograph and descriptive caption on your blog or social media page. To be included in the Genealogy Photo Challenge Gallery, do any of the following no later than 6am Pacific Time, Saturday, August 23, 2014:
- send the link or photo with caption to The Family Curator
- share your Facebook post or post your photo on The Family Curator Facebook Page.
World Photo Day began in 2010 as an online gallery celebrating worldwide photography. This year, World Photo Day celebrates 175 years of Photography with the anniversary of "the first practical photographic process patent in 1839." Photographers from around the globe will participate in the online gallery August 19 through 26, 2014 at www.WorldPhotoDay.org.
Join the Genealogy edition of World Photo Day by creating a Present is Present Photo to share.
