After the event, photographer select their best pictures taken during the event and submit their final 24 photos to www.24hourproject.org. Photos then become selected to travel exhibitions and are part of conferences, workshops and photoboooks.

History

The 24HourProject was cofounded by two photographers, Renzo Grande and Sam Smotherman, in 2012. The idea began with a personal project to document and compare two different cities for one full day. That same year, other photographers got interested and on the first edition of the project there were 65 world photographers documenting 24 cities. In 2015, there were 2030 photographers in 650 cities from 101 countries.

The global collaboration of the project lead to gallery exhibitions in Finland, Venezuela, Italy, Australia, United States, Iran and Mexico.
