Cool Photography Games to Play

Head over to Photojojo for a list of really fun photography games to play. Here's an example of one.

Mission 24

What Is It? Mission 24 sends you on a mission to illustrate a given word. The intervals between missions are random, to keep you on your toes, and you have 24 hours to complete your assignment.

What are the Rules? The mission begins when Mr. X gives you a word and the countdown starts. Interpret the word as a photo and upload your two best attempts within 24 hours.

Only photos taken after the mission starts are allowed- no recycling from your archives. No naughty pictures, either, although there’s a more, um, “adult” sister group called M24:Diesel.

How Do I Play? Join the Mission 24 group on Flickr and give them your email address so you can get the updates. They promise they won’t spam you.

Why Would I Bother? Creative interpretations are encouraged, so it’s a good way to practice the ol’ non-linear thinking. Plus the short deadlines are an incentive to carry a camera everywhere and start incorporating photography into your daily routine.

Sounds like fun dontcha think?
