Project 52: p52 FAQ

p52 project52 my3boybarians.com

What is p52?

Project 52 is a 52-week photo challenge. There will be weekly photography assignments – chosen by me and inspired by your input. Want to suggest future assignments? Head over to the m3b Facebook page and leave your ideas there. There is a topic already started. If it’s already scrolled, feel free to leave ideas on my wall.

Who can participate in p52?

Anyone with a blog or Flickr account is welcome to join.

How does it work?

Each week, you will take one photo based on that week’s theme.

**update** p52 has been moved! >> http://kentweakley.com/blog/

On Fridays I will have an inlinkz linky on my blog. Please post your weekly assignment photo on your own blog or your Flickr stream. Copy the permalink of that post or photo and paste it into the inlinkz form on my blog. You will be prompted to choose a thumbnail. The thumbnail of your image will appear on my blog and will link everyone back to your photo.

You may interpret the weekly assignment with whatever artistic license you wish to employ, but images that are abusing the good nature of the project will be deleted. Inappropriate, offensive, or duplicate links will be deleted. Please link only 1 image per week.

As a courtesy for hosting, I ask that you please link back to p52 or the weekly challenge to help encourage others to participate and grow the community. Thank you for helping spread the word!

Be the encouragement you wish to receive! Please visit other photographers and encourage them to stick with p52 and comment on their images.

The link will go live at 12 midnight central time zone (Chicago). This is late Thursday evening / early Friday morning in most time zones. Linky stays up for 7 days. Plenty of time to participate.

Why was my photo deleted?

I reeeeeeally don’t like playing bad cop. So if your images was deleted it was likely because:

  • you linked to the blog URL or Flickr stream instead of the permalink
  • you linked duplicate links
  • someone found your image distasteful or offensive. I get the final call on this.

Do you have buttons for us to use?

But of course!
