About Us

The Big Picture Photography Education Fair, taking place in Times Square and seeking to make photography accessible to 10,000 people and fundraise for 100cameras. 100cameras gives cameras to marginalized children around the world and teaches them how to tell their story through photography. 100cameras then shares their photos with a global audience, and 100% of the is used to meet physical needs in their community. It is their voice that raises awareness and creates positive change to brighten their own future.

The Big Picture Photography Education Fair will consist of interactive booths where visitors may bring their cameras to learn various concepts about photography, such as brightness, aperture and shutter speed. At each booth, attendees will capture beautiful images by learning how to use their cameras and apply these concepts. Each participant will leave the fair with stunning pictures and a newfound knowledge about how their cameras work. Upon exit, cityHUNT will host a photography scavenger hunt in Times Square for those interested. Participants will be eligible to win raffle prizes. There will be no cost to participate in the fair. The Big Picture goal of the Photography Education Fair is to bridge worlds together by empowering creativity for both the attendees of the fair and underserved children across our globe. The Big Picture seeks to raise $250,000 to enable 100cameras to teach photography to more children who would otherwise not have access. Learn more and RSVP at www.thebigpic.eventbrite.com.
