About the Oregon Project Dayshoot 30th Anniversary Event

On July 15, 2013, photographers and videographers from around Oregon, in partnership with the Oregon Historical Society, will participate in a 24-hour project to capture a single day’s worth of images across the state. This historical event will take place 30 years to the day after the original Project Dayshoot, in which 92 Oregon photographers collected thousands of photographs. This year’s event will include many of the same photographers who participated in the original project.

The public is also encouraged to participate on July 15 by posting photos to Flickr, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the tag #dayshoot30.
