24 hours in Ireland: Capture a moment to be remembered for generations
Published 09/04/2016 | 02:30
100 years ago there were very few photos taken on the opening day of the 1916 Rising.
A century on, you can help create an archive from the anniversary of that seminal event.
Sunday, April 24, marks the 100th anniversary to the day of the start of the Rising, which sparked the birth of the nation.
As part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme, the Irish Independent and Independent.ie are inviting Irish people at home and around the world to capture this historic 24 hours in time from 12 noon on Sunday, April 24 to 12 noon on Monday, April 25.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
The most captivating images will appear in a commemorative magazine, which will be published in the Irish Independent on Saturday, May 7.
Plus, a wider selection of images will appear in a commemorative gallery on Independent.ie as a digital record for future generations.
Running from 12 noon to 12 noon allows every aspect of Irish life to be covered.
Photos can be of anything within that 24-hour period, from sitting down to Sunday dinner to taking a walk with your family; from going to work to learning at school; from relaxing at home to working hard.
The object of the exercise is to capture life as it happens as normal in this 24-hour period.
And the emigrant community abroad are specifically included to allow those making their life away from home to be part of this commemoration.
