TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image

Join Us For Philly Photo Day, Sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal On April 5th, 2024!

After nearly a decade, Philly Photo Day, sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, is back! You’re invited to take a photograph in Philadelphia on Friday, April 5th and help us shine a light on the city. Grab your camera or phone and join us. Then what? Submit your photo via submittable by April 14th 11:59 EST and it’ll be included in our Philly Photo Day exhibition in our Project Space. An opening reception will be held in conjunction with our annual celebration and fundraiser InVISION on May 18th! Meet other lovers of photography, celebrate community, enjoy entertainment and light refreshments, and support TILT with a $25 ticket for students and artists (including participating artists) and $75 for general admission. Children under the age of 18 are free so bring your family, friends, and colleagues! If you can’t make the opening reception and InVISION event, you can check it out any time during the Crane Art Building’s business hours.

For Philadelphia, this will serve as a diverse record of the city through the eyes of those who inhabit, visit, work, or have fun in the city we love at this moment in history. No moment is too big, too small, or too mundane. Share Philadelphia from your unique perspective!
