Love Photography? Check Out The Girl Project

The Girl ProjectIf you’re a budding photographer and want the opportunity to share your unique, visual perspective with the world, you need to know about The Girl Project.

Through The Girl Project, founder Kate Engelbrecht is sending thousands of disposable cameras across the country to girls ages 13-18 and asking them to document themselves and their view of the world around them. The collection of images will be edited into a cohesive body of work to be viewed in book and exhibition formats – each revealing unseen truths about teenage girls and our culture.

Here’s the scoop from The Girl Project website:

Participation in The Girl Project is FREE. All we need from you is your time and creativity. Your photographs tell the story. Shoot what and who you want. Shoot close-up or from far away. Use the film to photograph 1 or 36 subjects. Take pictures of people, things or landscapes. Take self portraits. Use the camera to express your feelings and thoughts – happy, sad, angry or indifferent. Be thoughtful or careless, formal or informal, traditional or experimental, literal or symbolic. Photography is a visual way to communicate your ideas and opinions to the world.

To participate in The Girl Project, email Kate at and include the following information:

    That is so cool! :)

    My mom said she’ll look at it and then, hopefully, I can do it. Thanks! :) :)

    Work @ the Lower Keys of Florida Boys and Girls Club…We spotted your girls project but I did not see the age limit until I had already got my girls age 8-10 interested in the project. Was wondering any consideration??? I will also communicate with Fuji and see if there is any disposable cameras that my girls could use as they were very interested in the project…

    Thank you for your time and consideration…

    Thanks for your note Constance… I would connect with The Girl Project directly and see if there is any flexibility with the age restriction: . Good luck!
