After the Moment occurs, upload your photo, location, and a short description of your Moment, to the Worldwide Moment website www.WorldwideMoment.org
. 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
