Event Description


About 94toGram [nahyn-tee foh-toh gram]

We are celebrating the 94th birthday of Nelson Mandela by compiling and promoting a digital photo collection of portraits with personal birthday messages for him.

The collection will be published online and made freely available for download on tata Madiba’s 94th birthday on Wednesday, 18 July 2012.

It’s a simple initiative and it’s open to all registered volunteers to participate. The blog post announcing this initiative is here!

To participate, you will need to

  1. Choose a portrait subject, complete the model release, take a photograph and ask your subject to write a birthday message for Nelson Mandela;
  2. Merge your photograph and the message into a single image;
  3. Upload your image [and a copy of your model release] for inclusion in the collection.
