What is it? Crowdsourced Sundays is a collaborative project made up of contributions (in the form of photos) from followers of this blog, Twitter users, Facebook users and anyone else who happens to get caught up in it.
What’s the point? There isn’t one. I’m not trying to make one. However, from a germ of an idea I wondered if it were possible to bring together social media users simply by asking them to quickly and simply contribute something. If so, we could create a weekly focal point for everyone taking part. No one would be left out, neither the tweeters who don’t blog, the bloggers who don’t tweet, nor the Facebook users who do neither.
How does it work? Every Friday I give you a theme. You take a photo in keeping with the theme and either Tweet or email it to me. On Sunday all the photos submitted will go on display for all to see.
Why such a short time to contribute? I want the contributions to be as spontaneous as possible. I want contributors to take the theme, run with it, and get their submissions back double quick.
Can I submit more than one photo? No. Publish and be damned!
How will I know what the theme is? A blog post announcing the theme will be published on Friday evenings. It will also be tweeted on my Twitter account (follow the hashtag #crowdsourcedsundays) and posted on this blog’s Facebook page. Easiest way to ensure you never miss a theme announcement is to subscribe to the blog!
I look forward to seeing your contributions to Crowdsourced Sundays!
Rules are for squares, right? But nonetheless: the photos posted as part of this project are not protected from sharing or downloading by third parties. By sending an entry you are agreeing to publication. This is no place for anonymity – contributions with no name associated will be discounted. My decision on what is included is final. Any submissions deemed unsuitable or inappropriate will not be used.
