The Print Your Year Photo Challenge

As the calendar marks a new year, we're quick to look ahead, setting intentions, crafting resolutions, giving our imagination to all that awaits. But in this eagerness for the unknown, we overlook a simple truth: The advent of a new year marks the conclusion of another. And while we have plenty of reason to look to the future with bright eyes, so too do we have an imperative to take pause — to reflect on and honor the many moments that shaped a year of experiences.

So as we make way for all that's to come, we're making it our resolution to save space for all that has happened. For every goal, a milestone… for every intention, a celebration… for every step forward, a look back. And with the help of some close friends, we're adopting an exercise of reflection — a photo challenge to give permanence to those moments otherwise gone.

Join us. Let's find those photos that shaped the year.

Let the photo challenge begin...
