In the next few weeks 365 Project will pass the 1 million photos uploaded milestone. I almost can't believe it myself, but we're growing fast!

To celebrate our milestone, the lucky uploader of the 1 millionth photo will receive a Years Free Ace Membership and US$50 worth of Amazon gift vouchers to spend as they wish.

It's been really exciting to watch the site grow over the last few years. A big thanks to everyone that has uploaded in the past, and good luck to everyone just starting their projects for 2011 and beyond!

To enter just continue to upload your daily photo as normal. The lucky contributor will be contacted in a few weeks time.

I'm finding myself reflecting on the last few years a lot more thanks to this site, how has the site affected you and your photography?

WE thank you Ross for creating this amazing site and to keep it so good. The community here is so nice and you're our king!

Well done Ross, I was at a bit of a loss with my photography hobby,I had tried other sites, then I found this site, it gives me a reason to go looking for shots, and the encouragement that one receives from other members when contributing to the project is immense. All in all ,no matter your ability, this is a great place to post your pics, get ideas, and make friends all with the same goal in common, to finish the 365.
Love it, great work Mr Ross Scrivener, I salute you.

It made it much simpler to keep up with the project.

Many, many thanks to you for maintaining this site. This has become a Huge part of each day. I so enjoy the community here and the motivation this has given me to improve skills, to learn my camera and most importantly to view my world from a much different perspective.
posted February 2nd, 2011
Ross, this is amazing!! All I can say is that you are one awesome guy! How did you come up with the idea for 365? And why did you make it public, and not just a blog to post your images on? We can't thank you enough for maintaining the site and letting us upload our photos every day! When I read about Project 365 on Matador, I thought it's mostly for professional photographers. I had no idea that people look at and comment on your photos. In a moment of confidence, I joined, and I couldn't be happier! My photography has improved tremendously, I've been learning so much from everyone on 365, and most importantly, I have many new friends from all over the world! 365 is more than a community of photographers, it's a family that welcomes you with arms wide open! Thank you again so much for keeping the site up! You are our hero!!! :-))

Oh dear, I have learned SO much, and continue to improve my photography every single day because of this site. Well, I had the interest before, but since starting this project, and learning from so many different people, my skills and drive to learn more have grown tremendously. It has been such a treasure to have this forum where people are as excited as me about photography. The people are truly something special, as this community is so helpful, united, and encouraging. I get more inspired as soon as I log on; there is so much talent and varied styles on here. I feel very lucky to have joined this community, and I thank YOU very much for starting (and maintaining) it all!

I've become completely addicted to this forum, and I think you are doing a wonderful job maintaining this site! I've purchased a new DSLR, just so I can become a better amateur photographer. If I'm not the one millionth upload, then I will be purchasing an ACE Membership. But I'm going to hold out until the contest is over. Great job, Ross, you are amazing!

Wow, the one millionth photo, that's absolutely amazing :)

I'm a month into my project now and it has re-ignited my passion for photography. I was stuck in a rut, mostly taking snapshots of my two young children. Now I see photo opportunities all day long and always have my camera at the ready. This has made my days more pleasant :)

Wow, the site has changed the way I look at the world. I mean I have always loved taking pictures, and I am a lifelong photography student, but now I dream about taking pictures almost every night and it seems that everything I look at I wonder whether it will make a good photo.

Thank you for that!

I'm a newbie to 365... just started on January 1, and want to thank you for hosting such a wonderful community! Congratulations on the upcoming 1 mil photo! What an accomplishment!

Being a part of 365 has rekindled the creativity in my life, and I get excited every day wondering what will be "today's photo." And sharing in the photography of others is equally inspiring. All the world is a photo just waiting to be captured. Increasing my creative thinking about photography has also made me think more creatively about other parts of my life and work... and it feels good.

Thank you, Ross, for this amazing site and inspiring community!

posted February 3rd, 2011
I've taken pictures for quite sometime and have found many now sit in envelopes and bags never to be seen again. This site gives me a place to share my pictures with others who also have a passion for photography. To grow as a photographer. To learn what others are doing and how it may be used in my own work. To see my photos published locally. To be creative in ways I never could before without a darkroom. To see my life in a photo a day is probably the most important aspect of this site. It really shows me those things that have made an impression on me one way or another during the year. These are the things that make this site a blessing to me and has helped to make my life a great adventure through photography.
posted February 3rd, 2011
Thank you. I think the most important thing about this site is the kindness of the members and the generous sharing of knowledge. I have learned so much since I started a few months ago. I look forward to the months ahead, hoping I improve my photography.
posted February 3rd, 2011
Congrats, Ross!!! I love being part of this project. I used to tell people that I just wasn't creative - I never did crafts - never felt like I could draw, etc. But since I've started this project, I believe I have found a little bit of artistic ability within myself. I'm very happy and surprised with a few of my photos. For my new found confidence, I thank you!
posted February 3rd, 2011
Thanks and many congratulations, Ross. This site has meant a lot to me, seeing photos from all over the world, getting to know the people and sharing my efforts. It gives me something to look forward to everyday, and a reason to get outside more often than I used to, especially during the winter.

Thank you so much for creating this perfect site for us. I only joined for three months now but this is just what I needed. I love how I can see the photos of people living their own lifes all over the world and I love being inspired by them. I also love how this community is so kind to me as a new face. I didn't fit the lines that social media made me and my friends try to follow. I am happy to say I almost don't use Facebook anymore and starting using this site as a much better and healthier replacement. Instead of looking at people showing off, I look at normal but very talented people loving to take pictures and sharing positivity around. Thanks again and the best to everyone being so nice! Have a wonderful week y'all

I've been taking photographs for a long time, but there wasn't much direction in them. I started 365 project January 1 2018. The main aim is to document my kids and everyday life throughout the year.
This website has made the whole project such a joy, I love seeing the completed calendar at the end of each month, and the positive feedback is just so encouraging! What I've gained most about this project is discovering my style, I'm not such a fan of posed photos anymore, I'm not much good at landscapes or still life, I'm looking for those everyday moments and hunting up interesting ways to capture them, and convey the feeling.
I love seeing other members images and reading their stories through their photography, its a marvellous eye opener.
