New York Times Lens Blog Launches Global Social Experiment

The New York Times’ Lens blog is attempting a project similar to the worldwide 4am project we covered recently.

A Moment in Time is an attempt to capture a slice in the history of the world by allowing readers to submit photographs taken at Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 hours (U.T.C.).

While the photographs don’t have to be taken exactly at the specified time, they ask that you try to stay within minutes of the target. Once you’ve taken a photo, submit it through submit.nytimes.com/moment.

The submitted photographs will then appear on both the Lens blog and on NYTimes.com, and notable photographs will selected and featured more prominently on the blog.

If you’re interested in participating, mark your calendar and be ready with your camera on May 2!
