Save Your Photos Month 2021

Every year during the month of September, photo managers, companies, and photo retailers work together to raise awareness and educate people about the benefits of safeguarding their photos. We do this through online and in-person events and social media campaigns.  Last year we held our first Save Your Photos Summit and over 5000 people viewed the mini-courses we made available.  This year we are planning to triple those numbers. 

If you enjoy sharing your expertise, we are looking for 20 professional photo managers to pre-record a short class that we will feature as part of Save Your Photos Month.  Please review the details and weekly challenges and submit your proposal.  The submission deadline is July 15th.
