The world today from the point of view of the population.
We are @igersbonn, the Instagram community from the Bonn region in Germany, and this is the website from the worldwide project to which we would like to invite you: The coffee table book "#photographers_ww - The world through the eyes of the people".
We want to bring together people from all over the world whose hobby is photography - regardless of ethnicity, religion and especially politics - in one big book. Join us and show us the greatest sights of your country, the landscapes of your region or the life of the people in your culture. With this project, we want to celebrate the diversity and beauty of the world and showcase the creative possibilities of photography. We want to create a picture of the world together with you, show how we live today, how we see the world.
Every participating country in the world will be represented, with one or more pages, depending on the size of the country and the images submitted. We will decide on the size and format when we know how many of you are taking part. If there are a lot of entries per country, we will have to make a selection, for which we are currently putting together a jury.
What's in it for you?
By participating you will be part of this wonderful project and part of a world heritage. It is an opportunity for photographers to see their images immortalised in print. Once completed, we will make it possible for the book to be ordered worldwide in our shop www.gutesausbonn.de
What do we get out of it?
First of all, a lot of fun and joy when looking at your pictures. We work for this project on a voluntary basis and without payment. With the proceeds from the sale we hope to be able to cover the printing and production costs. If there is any profit left over, we will donate it to a worldwide non-profit organisation (e.g. UN Refugee Aid, HELP e.V.).
What about the image rights?
Of course, all image rights and rights of use remain with you. You only grant us the right to use your picture in the photo book and to use reproductions of the book pages for press and advertising purposes.
How can you participate?
Upload your pictures on this website, give us some information about the photo (what, when, where, with which camera) and write us a short text about what moves you about this picture. If you like, you can include your name, place of residence and age.
Please tag your photos with
to be featured.
Everyday we repost the picture of the day.

Minimum requirements for the pictures
- we need pictures taken with real cameras (mobile phone pictures are usually not sufficient): the shortest page should have at least 1,500 pixels at 300 dpi, which corresponds to a camera resolution of about 4 megapixels.
- please do not submit extreme cut-outs.
- make sure that the important parts of your motif are really sharp.... unless the blurriness is what makes the picture appealing.
- Are there recognisable people in your pictures? Then we need a declaration of consent from the person(s).
We would be very happy if you would become part of this great project! Please spread this message to all active Instagrammers you know. We are looking forward to a large, global participation and great networking.
