As part of the ongoing #itsgreatoutthere campaign, the coalition has teamed up with Unsplash, a website where over 60,000 photographers contribute their work openly and for everyone to use freely. The two organisations are curating a collection of inspirational images that showcase what the outdoors means to people around the world and are asking the public to contribute.
The Unsplash #itsgreatoutthere collection will be created from submissions made by outdoor enthusiasts. Members of the public can enter as many photos as they like between now and 11:59pm (EST) on Friday 26 January. All images will be reviewed by the Unsplash editorial team and those that are approved will appear on the #itsgreatoutthere collection page. In addition, the Unsplash and #itsgreatoutthere teams will select 10 photos from that collection, which will then be showcased on #itsgreatoutthere’s social media channels as well as Unsplash’s own Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. They will also feature on the Unsplash homepage, which gets viewed more than the cover of the New York Times.
