IU Press seeks Hoosier photos of ‘One Day in May’
May 11, 2016
To capture a day in the life of the Hoosier state, IU Press is asking residents to take part in a photographic celebration of Indiana’s bicentennial.
On Friday, May 20, IU Press invites Hoosiers to take photos and submit them from all 92 Indiana counties for a new book titled “One Day in May: 24 Hours in the Life of Indiana.”
“This is an unprecedented and exciting undertaking. Hoosiers and Americans alike will have the opportunity to glimpse a typical day in the life of an entire state,” said Gary Dunham, director of IU Press and Digital Publishing. “Even better, it will be through the eyes of Hoosiers themselves, who know this state as so much more than corn and auto racing.”
Whether the photos are of people, city streets, farmyards, offices, homes state parks or campuses, IU Press wants submissions of photographs taken throughout the day on May 20. No professional equipment is required. The book will be arranged chronologically from midnight to 11:59 p.m. and will be released this fall in honor of Indiana’s 200 years.
Participants may submit one picture per person. All photo uploads due by at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, May 22. Photos should include a caption, the time taken, the city and location, a description, and the photographer’s credit. Get more information about how to submit photos on the IU Press’ website.
