Positively Aware Magazine Announces "A Day With HIV in America" Photo Essay Which Will Illustrate a Day in the Life With HIV
CHICAGO, Ill. - August 30, 2010 - To commemorate World AIDS Day, Positively Aware magazine
is compiling a photo essay entitled "A Day with HIV in America." On September 21, people from all across the country, both
HIV-positive and negative, care providers, lawmakers, advocates, families, and friends will take a snapshot of a moment from
their everyday life.
The photo essay hopes to present a portrait of our world and
to put a face on HIV/AIDS in the U.S., in an effort to de-stigmatize life with HIV. 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 . Social media users can join
others who are involved in the project on the Facebook group "A Day with HIV in America," and also
take part in the conversation on Twitter at www.adaywithhiv.com/twitter
Using a digital camera or cell phone, the photos will 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 the person's own response to the
question, "What does it mean to live with HIV?"
Photos are to be submitted by September 23 to firstname.lastname@example.org . Submissions
must include the person's name (and the names of anyone else in the photo), phone number (of all participants), HIV status (optional),
and a caption describing the scene, giving the location and time of day the picture was taken. Signed release forms will also be
required for submissions to be considered.
Photos can be in JPEG, TIF, or RAW file format, and must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi at 4 x 5 inches. Photos can be
color or black and white. Cell phone camera photos are acceptable, provided that they meet resolution requirements.
