From June 1 to June 30, New York's Urban Archive is collecting photos shot in New York City for their "My Archive" project, which documents scenes from all around the city.
As the website explains:
New York, dig into your family archives and join us in telling the story of our city! For the entire month of June, we are once again collecting personal histories and photographs of New Yorkers captured on city streets across the five boroughs.
Submissions will be accepted between June 1 and June 28. All photographs that meet the selection criteria listed below will be added to our permanent, citywide archival collection.
With the help of our esteemed panel of Quintessential New Yorkers, we will also pick 25 stories from the submission pool to highlight in Urban Archive and feature on LinkNYC kiosks in proximity to where the photographs were originally taken. Selected submissions will be announced on July 12, 2019.That panel of "quintessential" New Yorkers includes actor Debi Mazar, Gothamist publisher Jake Dobkin, artists James and Karla Murray, artist/entrepreneur Dave Ortiz, and.... us! So if you have a photo taken in New York City before 2005 and have a story to tell, visit
to read the official rules and submit! We're looking forward to seeing your images.
