BBC Look East were kind enough to feature 365 Project on the evening news last week. The show went out on Friday (21st Jan 2010) to around 500,000 people.
Some of the lucky 365ers from the region got their photos highlighted on the program. You can view the full conversation on the discussion boards here

Below is the video, featuring a short interview with me and an overview of the site from Mike Liggins a local journalist. Mike has started the project at http://365project.org/mikeliggins/365 so be sure to follow and encourage him to keep taking photos!

If you've seen 365 Project mentioned "in the wild" I'd love to hear about it. Being from the UK I only really know what's happening with it over here. Also feel free to tell your local news and radio stations about the site, it's really exciting to be featured in the "mainstream" news for a change!

You Rock Ross....you've always been so helpful and encouraging ~ the community you've created here has literally changed my life ( for the better :) of course), I will catch up with my project I hope soon but it has been such a wealth of strength for me during this season of my life, I can't thank you enough.

January 29th, 2011
Congratulations 365 and Ross!!
January 29th, 2011
This is so cool!! Congratulations!
January 29th, 2011
Ross, do you ever sit back and think about the fact that you’re just a really young guy from a town in England that had an idea, and it has grown literally to global proportions? If you’re not amazed, I am! I’m glad you thought of it. I love every second I spend here. Congratulations!
January 29th, 2011
Well Done Ross You are a star and I love 365 x
January 29th, 2011
3 cheers for Ross! You have created something really big here and we all appreciate all the work that goes into it. Until one is a participant, one can't possibly understand that this is so much more than just a photo a day. Not only have I made friends all over the world and improved my photography skills, I have come to appreciate and understand more about different countries, cultures, geography, religion, history, plants, animals, and just life in general. Finally, I have to emphasize what a supportive group of people this is. Mark Zuckerman may have his FaceBook,, but Ross Scrivener has the 365 Project and now word is getting out! Thank you, Ross...and you'd better start thinking of who you want to have play you when they make *your* movie! Have a great day!
January 29th, 2011
Ross, I am glad you shared this with us. Thank you for the site, I really enjoy taking my photos.
January 29th, 2011
YOU ARE ADORABLE, ROSS!!! What a fun piece!
January 29th, 2011
