Worldwide Moment - Simultaneous Photo Shoot for Peace

Can you imagine people from every country in the world participating in a simultaneous moment of peace?

Can you imagine the photographs this moment would produce?

Can you imagine the impact? ... We can... Please join us.

Worldwide Moment is a non-profit arts organization which encourages people around the world to celebrate peace and international collaboration by taking simultaneous photographs and sharing their stories. 2009's Moment occurs when the time is Wednesday September 9, 2009 at 9:09AM in the +09GMT time zone, or 09.09.09+09GMT@09:09.

So that means when it's:

* Wednesday morning September 9 at 9:09AM in Japan and North Korea
* Wednesday morning September 9 at 3:09AM in Darfur and Iraq
* Tuesday evening September 8 at 8:09PM in New York and Chile
* Tuesday afternoon September 8 at 2:09PM in Hawaii...

...all you have to do is take a photograph for peace. Nearly 1,000 photographers from 65 countries have pledged to participate.

After the Moment occurs, upload your photo, location, and a short description of your Moment, to the Worldwide Moment website The photo collection will then be available online, in a book publication to benefit international charities, and will eventually premier in-person at a soon-to-be determined gallery. If you are a gallery owner or representative interested in showing the photos please contact us.

Whether amateur or professional, film or digital, Polaroid or camera phone, young or old, this is for EVERYONE. All you have to do is take a photograph at the specified Moment. And for those who want to participate but don't have a camera? WE WANT TO GIVE YOU ONE. Contact us.

To see Worldwide Moment's 2008 exhibit of 270 photographs from 20 countries visit our Gallery.

Thank you very much for your support. We hope you'll join us.

Clic on "" ... it is hélàs as i said before in french BUT ... the idea to come out dressed in white and march onto the main place in town, in your village ... elsewhere ... sounds to me a good idea ........ ;)) !

I will be at a Peace event held in the Maryhill Stonehenge Memorial, in WA state. I'm sure it will be documented by better photographers than myself. It is 1 pm our time and synched with England's original Stone Henge event too!

One by one, reaching out. Touching the hands of love around the world, we become One. Pure love in peace, no judgment, no fear, a world healed.

A Moment of Peace Around the Whole World!

What a GREAT idea. I would like to suggest that each person submit two photos. One of their most cherished symbol of Love and Peace, and a second of themselves or their home, nature, hometown, garden, friends hugging, etc.

For me, that would be a photo of a beautiful white dove with intelligent eyes; a common, but for me very personal symbol of the holy spirit and of the spirit of peace. And secondly, a photo of "Bard's Delight" which is a beautiful and peaceful rustic wooded homestead in the hills of the Western New York southerntier.

"Bard's Delight" is a physical place and a spiritual place that represents the best of where we are now, and the Best of where we wish to Be.

"Bard's Delight" = Unity, Equality, Word-Wide Brotherhood, Liberty, Love, and of course, Peace.

Someone once said that God answers prayers with opportunities for learning and betterment.
Thanks for helping to provide this opportunity for all of us...
