Remember, you can make plans ahead of time, but SPS images should be captured during the week of the “event” (from the previous Monday through that Sunday). You can shoot for the theme, but also feel free to share any off-topic images you create, as well. <3

Rules for all SPS Event Weekends:

Everyone is invited to share an image – join us in capturing a current self portrait!

Interpret our themes however you like, or just ignore them. 😉

If you would like to share an image that doesn’t match the theme, that is fine, too. As long as it was captured within the qualifying timeframe.

You can post your “self portrait sunday” image whenever it is Sunday where you live, during this weekend’s “event.” That photo should be taken during the event weekend, or the week prior to the event. Your photo can be taken from the PREVIOUS MONDAY up through the event weekend.

As always, have fun creating! <3
