project mcp long banner13 Welcome to Project MCP: Develop Your Skills as a Photographer

You know what they say, “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!”

Today, Project 12 officially becomes Project MCP. As a faster-paced, challenge-filled project, Project MCP is sure to inspire, teach and get you taking more photos.

What is Project MCP and how will it work?

Project MCP is designed to push your creativity, improve your photography skills and help you capture images and memories to last a lifetime. Beginners, hobbyists and professional photographers are all invited to share in the journey.

On the first Saturday of each month, the Project MCP Team will offer up four, or five, challenges; one for each week of the month.  The challenges might be a theme, technique or inspirational. Complete all, or just a couple. Take your photos in  one shoot or in multiple sessions. This way you can fit Project MCP into your schedule and your life.

To keep you motivated, each Saturday you can check back on the MCP Actions Blog to learn more about the challenges, see other photographer’s work and learn new techniques.

Where to upload your images:

You spoke, and we listened!

Submit your Project MCP photos by uploading your images to the Project MCP Flickr group (formerly known as the Project 52 Flickr group) or on the MCP Actions Facebook page.

  • You can upload five images to the Flickr group for each set of challenges posted.
  • Important: When posting your images to our group or page, tag them with the project name, month and challenge number. For example: Project MCP, March, Challenge #1.

How to participate in Project MCP:

  • Comment below and let us know you are on board. There is no timeline, so you can feel free to join anytime. The project is flexible; you can complete as few or as many of the challenges as you would like. Photos must be taken specifically for this project and within the time-frame indicated.
  • Join the Project MCP Flickr group and/or our The MCP Facebook Page, take your photos and upload your images.
  • Visit our Blog on the first Saturday of each month to find out the new challenges.
  • Bookmark this page: http://projectmcp.info – this will help you find the posts each month.
  • Remember, you can share unedited or edited images, iPhone, point and shoot, or SLR photos, anything goes. If you edited with MCP Actions, we’d love you to indicate what you used.
  • Spread the love – Everyone likes praise. Visit the Project MCP Flickr group and the MCP Actions Facebook page to view submissions and leave comments for your fellow photographers. Please only give constructive criticism if asked for. Remember many participants are non-pros and are just looking to have fun.  If you want detailed feedback and critique, indicate that.
  • Spread the word – Share on Facebook, Twitter, your blog and photo forums all over the web. The more participants we have, the more we will learn from each other as photographers and the more fun it will be. Grab a Project MCP Banner here.

A few guidelines:

We would still like to keep things as relaxed as possible for 2012, but to help things run smoothly we will stick to these guidelines.

  • Photos need to be taken in the within the noted time period and fit the challenge requirements. Do not use old photos which happen to fit a theme.  You will be cheating yourself.
  • Photos on the Flickr Group will be moderated. It make take up to 24 hours for your photos to appear.
  • Collages fitting the topics and time-frame are welcome. You can use tools like our Blog it Boards to display these.
  • No pornography, nudity, violence or any content deemed illegal by the United States Government. MCP Actions and its designees reserve the right to remove any photos  deemed objectionable.
  • Images must be taken by you.  You cannot submit images from another photographer.
  • By uploading to our project, you maintain copyright, but give us permission to use the photo on our Blog/Facebook, in the context of Project MCP. If we want to use a photo for any other purpose, we will contact you and obtain permission in writing. Please consider watermarking and branding your photos using tools like our Finish It actions  or Free Facebook Fix Photoshop actions.
  • Most importantly, have fun!

We hope that you will participate in Project MCP. We truly appreciate your feedback regarding Project 12 and hope that Project MCP is a change in the right direction. See you Saturday for the first challenges!

    I was in for Project 12 and I will most definately take this challenge and see if I can produce a picture every week! I wanted to do a Project 52 at the beginning of the year but thought that it would be too much with a full time job I work at almost 50 hours a week and raising a 4 year old but I really enjoy photography so I would like to give it a try!

    Sigh. I was so excited about the one-theme-a-month; it just worked for me. I’m willing to give this a go too, though.

    • 142.1

      I’m with you, Christina. There are tons of these time-intensive projects out there. I was looking for something that would fit with my busy schedule and allow me to explore one theme thoughtfully, on my time.

    • 142.2

      Christina, the other project was not very well received so we changed it – we are listing 4 themes and people can do all or just one. And submit 1 photo for each – a few for 1, or just do 1 theme. In a way this should make everyone happy.

      We are open to feedback but there was too much lag for most in a once a month project, so we decided to make it so it could go either way depending on the person.

      Sorry you are disappointed. Jodi

    Ugh. I shan’t be participating in this new project. I was really excited about the full-month, single-focus challenge. The reason I joined it was because I don’t have time to devote to these weekly or highly social-media driven project. Shame you threw the baby out with the bathwater on that.

    […] This past weekend, I got the opportunity to shoot some pictures at a nearby park. My friend and her girls ended up going with us. Her daughter .J. proved to be a very willing poser and I got some great shots of her on a spontaneous photo shoot. I used the one above for the natural light challenge. […]

    I’m going to try it, but I still doubt that I’ll do more than one challenge. I don’t mind so much the way that the assignments have changed because it’s really left up to us, as it is… but rather the uploading method. I very much preferred the link-up. That was the appeal for me. I’m in though…

    I used to follow along while we were living in Japan, but since leaving after the earthquake and us having twins…well time has been a a premium. I also merged everything to a new flickr account. So slowly emerging again and hope to start back on some of the challenges as time permits…you may remember our crazy hairless kittehs :-)

    Glad to be back.

    I am seeing uploads to the Challenge that do not fall within the scope, either time wise, for instance on is there now from September 2011, or that do not follow the theme.

    I am confused how these entries are getting approved and what is the point of the rules the rest of us are trying to follow.
    thank you!

      Hi,
      The Project MCP Team has been working very hard to moderate each and very photo, unfortunately, sometimes a photo or two slip through the cracks. We are pretty liberal in the moderation, as the challenges are open for interpretation. We hope you will continue to be patient as the team works towards more closely moderating the photos posted for each challenge!

      Thanks!
      Trish
