Positively Aware magazine released the trailer for the second annual A Day with HIV in America campaign. The national campaign features an online photo essay project focused on destigmatizing and demystifying HIV.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LIVE WITH HIV?
Positively Aware magazine wants you to think about that question. Because, whether you’re positive or negative, we are all affected by HIV.
On Sept. 21, take a snapshot of a moment from your everday life. Use your digital camera or cell phone camera, and capture a scene: Getting ready for work. Hanging out with friends. Spending a quiet moment alone. Caring for someone with HIV. The idea is to come up with your own response to the question, What does it mean to live with HIV?
TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT
Once you’ve taken your picture, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name (and the names of anyone else in your photo) and phone number (so that we can call to verify you are who you say you are), your HIV status (if you want), and a caption describing the scene, giving your location and the time you took the picture. Also, please indicate whether you want your name and HIV status included in the caption we publish.
Photos can be in JPEG, TIF, or RAW file format, and must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi at 4 x 5 inches. They can be color or black and white photos. Cell phone camera photos are acceptable, provided that they meet resolution requirements.
Submit your photo by Sept. 26 to email@example.com.
Selected photos will appear in a special section of the November-December issue of Positively Aware. Additional photo submissions will be available for viewing at www.ADayWithHIVInAmerica.com.
