Drag to set position!

MAStapleton ADMIN January 14, 2016
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 52 Weeks project on Flickr. After four successful years, we've decided to stop at 2015 and not continue into 2016. We hope you've all enjoyed the project.
Thanks to everyone who posted such incredible photos and shared their lives with us.
Best wishes.

Group Description

Following the success of our end of year gallery showing iPhone photos of 2011. In 2012 we started the project 52 weeks: Photos of 2012 for those wanted to share images which mark big events, personal stories or world news in 2012 - at the end of the year we could look back and reflect on the moments which made up 2012.

To take part in the project, post one photo a week to mark your year in pictures tagged '52weeks' (no quotation marks). Please don't post more than two pictures per week unless you are catching up. You also need to tag your image with the number of the week and the year ('1:2012' '7:2013' etc). Weeks start on Mondays and end on Sundays.

If you're interested in iPhoneoography you can submit photos only taken on an iPhone (with hipstamatic effects) - but the 2011 group was created in this way because these types of photography apps for mobile phones really marked the way we took and shared photos that year. What will be the big development of the next year? We don't want to keep the scope of this group too narrow, but we'd like to continue to explore how photos are taken as technology progresses - so help us by writing descriptions to go with your photos on what apps they use and how they were taken. You can also start discussion topics to help others.

We also have the Guardian Camera Club for those interested in getting involved in a photography group which sets monthly assignments to help you develop your skills.

We may feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers. By posting your pictures here you a) acknowledge that you have created the pictures or have permission to do so; and b) grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, free licence to publish your pictures as described. Copyright resides with you and you may reuse your pictures however you wish. You will be credited and paid if we make other uses of your pictures. It would also help us if you make the pictures downloadable in case we use them in a Guardian gallery.

Group Rules

This group is to showcase pictures which represent moments important to you or big events in the news in the current year. It also explores the way we take and share photographs by experimenting with new effects and mobile photography apps.

You can also participate in our 52 weeks project by aiming to submit one photo a week tagged 52weeks and with the number of the week in the year (for e.g. 1:2012 or 50:2013). The number of submissions is there for limited to one a week (although we'll push to two a week if you need to catch up). Your photo must also be taken in the current (which is marked clearly on Flickr in the caption or the photo info).

This group is also for pictures only so no videos or illustrations please - and please use the caption and geolocation options to tell us more about your photo.

We may feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers.

By posting your pictures here you a) acknowledge that you have created the pictures or have permission to do so; and b) grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, free licence to publish your pictures as described. Copyright resides with you and you may reuse your pictures however you wish. You will be credited and paid if we make other uses of your pictures.
