The Boost Your Photography 52 Weeks Challenge (#BYP52Weeks) is an opportunity to grow in your photography by committing to take and share one photograph a week for a year. Though the challenge began in May, you are welcome to jump in at any time.

* Update: We are launching a 2015 version of #BYP52Weeks starting in January! *

You can join the BYP 52 Weeks Google+ Community via Google+ to share your weekly photograph and see what others are capturing. It's a great way to make a commitment to grow in your photography and to receive comments and feedback from other photographers. Join here: BYP 52 Weeks Google+ Community or join the January 2015 reboot.
