This means that uploading photos to “The World’s largest Photoglobe” is double worth the effort: users can win great prizes, and their photos will be at photokina 2014 which opens its gates from 16 to 21 September in Cologne. In passage 4/5 the photokina visitors will find “The World’s largest Photoglobe” with its gigantic six meter diameter as well as an enthralling Sea of Photos with thousands and thousands of pictures.
This is what you need to do
True to the motto “175 Years of PhotoMoments” you can join in the initiative “The World’s largest Photoglobe”: by uploading your photos from the present and from the recent and distant past on the portal www.photoglobus.de/en. Obviously, you retain the rights to these photos. Just one more thing: please assign one year to each photo that you upload. Step-by-step this creates a journey through time covering “175 Years of Photography” – and also a mirror of societies and their development across all continents.
Celebrating “175 Years of Photography” and photokina 2014, the founders of the joint initiative are asking you for your support – to create a time journey through many decades of photography … a journey that has never been traveled before in this way. There is general agreement that technical progress has increased the variety of photo motifs and the way of getting them into focus. Every period has its own preferences for certain motifs but also allows experimentation. With your photos, this will be clearly visualized in the joint initiative “The World’s largest Photoglobe” at photokina 2014 and at the portal www.photoglobus.de/en. We are counting on you!
