About 24 Hours in New Zealand - Your chance to have your photos published in this amazing book!
Project 2017-04-10 02:37:38 UTC
24 Hours in New Zealand is set to be one of the largest photographic projects undertaken in this country!
Shot entirely in a single day - completely by the people that live, work, play in and travel New Zealand! An amazing compilation of images giving a minute by minute snapshot of this country from top to bottom over 24 hours.
New Zealand..We need your images to publish in a book!
On JUNE 21st 2017 we want to document New Zealand from top to bottom using your photographs to create a stunning snapshot of a day in the life of this country. These images will be used to create a visually amazing book with 380 pages of photos in glossy full colour and black & white..Thats 1440 photos to represent the 1440 minutes in a day. We want to see your New Zealand - from professional photographers to amateur photo enthusiasts - to anyone with a cameraphone...and everything inbetween.
It is a chance for anybody that takes photos in this country at any level to be published and be a part of this amazing photography book.
It seems that everyone has a camera or phone on them at all times these days, constantly documenting their lives and surroundings, yet 99% of these images never get printed. By supporting this PledgeMe campaign you can bring this book to life and become a published photographer at the same time!
There will be 1440 images in this book, one for each minute of the day and each Pledge of $40, $60 or $80 will guarantee you 1, 2 or 3 images published in the book as well as receiving a finished copy of the book.
When we have 1440 images covered, the campaign will switch to book purchases only so that anyone can own and enjoy this fantastic compilation. What an awesome present for friends overseas or an amazing resource for schools or photography clubs! Leading up to JUNE 21st 2017 there will be updates, tips and progress reports on how the campaign is shaping up!
THE SHOOT DAY...JUNE 21st 2017
Why June 21st you ask? Well, it's the shortest day of the year, it's winter and if this campaign is successful then we plan to release another book documenting Dec 21st 2017.. or the longest day Summer Edition. The contrast between these 6 months would make for amazing photographic comparisons...
The shoot begins at 06:00 WEDNESDAY JUNE 21st 2017, runs for exactly 24 hours and basically there are no rules! We want you to capture how you see your day - your way! Take 20 photos or 1000, but make sure you are happy with your shots and you are shooting in a high resolution so that we can produce your images with the best quality. Candid shots are always better than posed and while we encourage you to be honest and real with your photos, there are images that can fall into the category of "objectionable material" and therefore legally we would be unable to print them. EVERY photo will be assessed on context and considered, as we are hoping for the widest range of subjects and content..some comfortable and some uncomfortable.
Make sure to record the times of your photos to the closest minute they were taken.
AFTER THE SHOOT.... THE TECHNICALS.
Pledgers will then be asked to upload their 15 best images of the day within a week to our website, email or Dropbox along with details of the exact times of the images. We want to assign a photo to every minute of the 24 hour period.
Final layout and image selection will be at our discretion based on the best asthetics for the book. Each contributing photograph will either be placed on a page of 2, 3 or 4 images maximum. Each photo will be titled with the exact minute, the location in NZ and the photographers name or Business name provided. If people or children are the subject of your photos then the appropriate release forms must be signed and returned. We will send these to you if necessary.
A standard form with the photographers signed consent that their images are able to be used in this publication titled "24 Hours in New Zealand - Winter Edition 2017" and also in any associated promotional marketing online for the book will also be required.
The main cost of this project is the high material, set up and manufacture costs needed to produce a minimum of 1500 full gloss colour, 380 page photography books. We will be working closely with a Christchurch based printer that has years of experience producing quality books of this nature. The money also will go toward postage of the completed product. There are PledgeMe fees to cover and also payment to our graphic artist who has the responsibility of finalizing layout of 1440 images before final print. A small part of the money will also be used for online marketing through social media during the campaign.
Here at "24 Hours in New Zealand" we are very excited about the size and scope of this campaign and we cant wait to see your support. We will be doing everything possible to get as many people involved and to make this book a reality!
Cheers New Zealand!
Note: This campaign is not at all related to Auckland Festival of Photography Trust or their Photo Day.
The People Behind 24 Hours in New Zealand - Your chance to have your photos published in this amazing book!
My name is Ryan, I have been a professional photograher both here in NZ and overseas for years. The idea to do this book came from the fact that virtually everyone has a camera on them at all times now and are constantly documenting their lives, fun, family and the land around them . Unfortunately most of these images never make it to print. This book will hopefully be the most comprehensive photographic overview of our diverse country in print if we can make this project a success! A photobook of every minute for an entire day from top to bottom of New Zealand shot entirely by the people of New Zealand!
