So glad to see the project is still going strong :)
About the Weekly Photo Project 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Weekly Photo Project - it's open for all levels of photographers and you can join at any time!

The idea of the project is to have fun, whilst learning more about photography and your camera.

The idea is simple: each week you will try to take a new photograph based on a theme, executed any way you feel fit. The list of themes for the year and the copy / paste tags for each theme can be found in the Community

Try to take the photos weekly if possible (it is more fun that way - we don’t check exif data but “stockpiling” images in advance or raiding your archive would not be in the spirit of the project). The Project should not be a source of stress though: if you’re late then you’re late, if you miss a theme then you miss a theme, so what and no worries.


1) This is not about the camera or having expensive kit or being skilled at post-processing. Take all your photos on your phone if you wish - it's about your photo taken anyway and anyhow.

2) The project is not just for experienced photographers but for anyone who wants to have fun taking pictures.

3) Don’t feel intimidated or that you’re not good enough. This is designed to be a friendly place for all of us to enjoy.

Don’t just share your photos, comment and “plus” the photos of other participants as well, so that we can all learn and enjoy the process. We can no longer share a “Participants” circle as we have done in previous years due to changes in G+. If you want to keep up with other / non-project work from the Participants then you will need to add them individually to a circle. Please post your images Publicly as well as to the Community ( cannot be done at the same time unfortunately ) and please ensure all photos are tagged with the tags for that theme / week ( available in a section on the Community )

Please, share only your own work, as we cannot promote pictures from others than you! And it would be nice to avoid pictures with text, just your copyright or signature if you wish.

You can find the Community at

I'm afraid the changes in G+ have alienated me from the service for a while. Let's see where the wind turns.

G+ Weekly Photo Project - a history

The project was started back in 2012 as +Project52-2012 by +Giuseppe Basile and +Kate Church and was a resounding success.

For 2013 we saw the creation of +Weekly Photo Project 2013 curated admirably by +Andrew Willard, +Iain Harley and +Tiina Niskanen. Once again a very successful year.

2014 saw +Weekly Photo Project 2014 with a larger team of curators consisting of +Andrew Dobrucki +ben wong +Bernhard Rembold +Francesco Scaglioni +Maurice Loy +Navin Upendran +Robyn King +Samantha OBrien and +Thomas Gillingham. Great fun was had by all and the the project seems to have been a success.

For 2015 we once again had an extended team for +Weekly Photo Project 2015, some of the 2014 curators have moved on to concentrate on other work and new members have joined so we now have +Alen Ianni +Bernhard Rembold +Cliff Loresco +Francesco Scaglioni +Heather D +Ken Fowkes +Matt Crace +Navin Upendran +Robyn King and +T.E. Smith.

2015 has been a great success. The sense of growth and camaraderie among the participants has been tremendous. The submitted photography has been amazing and impressive.

For 2016 there need to be some changes. The new Google + interface has required a rethink. Thus, with the loss of the ability to share circles the project has moved from a “Page” to a “Community". + Apart from that very little change. Images uploaded to the specific month section of the Community and tagged with the relevant tags ( also available in a Community section ).

For 2016 there have been further changes in the curation team with some moving on and new volunteers stepping forwards. Thus for 2016 the team is :

+Alen Ianni +Alicia Smith +Bernhard Rembold +Byron S +Francesco Scaglioni +Grandma Snyder +Mary Wardell +Navin Upendran +Rob Masters +Robyn King and +Tim Kennedy 

Lets us hope that 2016 can be the best year so far.
