The Grids for 2018 are all listed in the forums -- please refer to the appropriate map and remember that photos must be taken inside the month and inside the grids.Please remember to add your photos to the Flickr map so that we can have an idea of where the photos are taken inside the grid. If you are not sure how to do this check out the FAQ

Group Description

Victoria Grid Project. Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr

This is the Victoria Grid Project.
We are a group of photographers / people who like to take photos / people who own cameras / urbanists who have come together to document both the mundane and the spectacular areas of our city - Victoria, BC.

The idea has been taken from the Portland Grid Project in which once a month we randomly choose a 1 km grid from our map and document the area in any way that we can.

In our flickr group, this means photography.

In order to participate, we hope that you can follow the rules and be an active participant in the selection process. This means that each month there is a chosen grid area of the city for us to document each month.

Even though you may have an excellent photo of the grid, if it's from a different time frame it cannot be included. We suggest that if you can, go back and frame your photo once more in the same spot.

Post-processing is limited. We have decided that this group is mainly for documentation purposes. The challenge is to take a photo within the grid and month without changing the photo afterwards. We want the power lines, the dead leaves, the cars rushing by and the funny little kid sticking out his tongue. Please don't erase these later on. As well, please don't add objects to your photos of the grid - a bush, a dinosaur or the colour of the building.

To be able to come back to your photo three years from now, when we re-shoot the grid and see what things were truly like is our aim. If you alter the photo, we cannot know how things were. If you want to "clean up" your photo, please don't post this version to the grid.

Since the group, while large, has been quiet, we have removed the limit on photos per month or per grid. We do ask that you not post photos that are too similar to each other (seven photos of the same house from the same position, for example) but rather to try and get a good sample of what the grid looks like.

There aren't many rules, but it would helpful if everyone read them and stuck by them, okay?

Okay!
