24-hour ‘Dayshoot’ announced

The Oregon Project Dayshoot 30th Anniversary event seeks photojournalists and videographers to participate in a historic 24-hour project on July 15.

Between midnight and midnight on July 15, photographers and videographers from around Oregon, in partnership with the Oregon Historical Society, will collect images that show a “day in the life” of Oregon. The goal of the project is to record and preserve a portrait of the state as seen through the lenses of its working journalists.

These images will be displayed online and in a physical exhibit, and will become part of the permanent collection of the Oregon Historical Society.

This historical event will take place 30 years to the day after the original Project Dayshoot, in which 92 Oregon photographers collected thousands of photographs between midnight and midnight on July 15, 1983. This year’s event will include many of the same photographers who participated in the original project.
