24 Hours of Flickr

“What happens around the world in one day?” asks Flickr, the global photo community. “Life,” they say. In celebration of life, and the vast number of Flickr users around the world, the team behind-the-scenes has organized the first day-long global photo project called 24 Hours of Flickr.

The idea is you, the Flickr user, venture out into your daily life on May 5, 2007, and capture what you see — chronicle your day in pictures. Then join the group created for the event, 24 Hours of Flickr, and post your best single photo to the group. Then, according to the group notes, “the event will be commemorated by a companion 24 Hours of Flickr book, which will contain a selection of photographs chosen from the group.”

If you plan on submitting a photo to the celebration, please also feel free to submit it to the Gadling photo group on Flickr. It might be chosen for our Photo of the Day in addition to being apart of 24 Hours of Flickr.
