PhotoWings tent activity sample

We’re honored to partner again with Photoville for our 4th year! You’re in for another rich, unique and personal photographic experience. We’ll miss our tent with all our activities but we will be replicating some of them virtually. Our collaboration with Photoville and Smilebooth will bring you a virtual photo booth as part of the 2020 festival, inviting you to share stories about photographs that have taught you life-changing lessons.


Think about a personal photo which illustrates a life-changing lesson. Have it ready to be photographed. Also write on a piece of paper why it is important – and have that ready! Now you can take your photos!

Share your Personal photo which illustrates a life-changing lesson.

Write down and tell us why it is important?

Once you receive your complete photo, share it to the world and tag #photowings #photovillenyc and we will share the best stories each week!

PhotoWings’ mission is to highlight and help facilitate the power of photography to influence the world. We help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. We are dedicated to utilizing the power of photography to further deep thinking, communication, and action.

Our extensive online content and PhotoWings Outreach Program has a myriad of educational applications and possibilities, including Flash Grant awards that cross disciplines, generations, and cultures. We also create toolkits/curricula for replication, adaptation and/or inspiration.

PhotoWings has supported the documentation of the Photoville Talks for the past three years, to expand the ways the global community can be a part of these important dialogues. Explore the collection of Photoville Talks today!
