Taking a photo a day is a huge undertaking with big returns if it’s done with intent. The 365 photo challenge is a popular concept that motivates the photographer to shoot one photograph a day, striving to look for something fresh and different day to day, and tell a compelling story after compiling it into a full year long project–and that’s what Mission: Pic is trying to take to the next level.
Mission: Pic aims to re-introduce the 365 photo challenge with a twist. While the traditional 365 photo challenge is mostly a solo project, Mission: Pic is a mobile App (iOS devices only) that allows you to play with your friends through photography missions every day. Every one gets the same new photo challenge each day, you take a photo that fulfils the challenge’s criteria, and then the community votes on the photos, creating a leader-board of amazing photography. Now here is the exciting part, the daily winner will be sent a prize, which is the print of his winning photograph embossed with the winning seal and a handwritten postcard of congratulatory notes.
Mission: Pic team has also released simple to understand videos on Youtube to help improve general photography. You can check out their first video on Rule of Thirds here.
