I've been quite silent on Google+ for the past few weeks (at least on the public feed).
But I've been commenting and participating in communities, both public and private.
2013 is here and new projects will begin: "PLUS ONE COLLECTION 2012" is the first!
I was lucky enough to have one of my photos featured in last year's edition… I will submit one again, but all-in-all, what matters most is the money that will be raised through the project.
Just check the video to find out more about it all… and do not hesitate to submit your own photo!

ANNOUNCING PLUS ONE COLLECTION 2012 + Image Submission + Fundraising Campaign
Alright, let's do this thing! The publication of Plus One Collection 2012 is officially under way. Read on for details, watch the video, re-share it, and get on the train before it's too late.
Who can contribute a photograph for the book?
Anyone. Send us your best image you took in 2012 and it'll get published in one or in all forms – in print, in ebook, and in our online gallery.
What's the theme?
Same as last year – your best photograph you made in the year just ended, 2012.
How else can I help?
Re-share this post with your circles. Invite friends and family to participate. This is a photography community publication, and we want as many submissions as we can get. Everyone should hear about this. Remember to tag your posts with #PlusOneCollection2012
When is the deadline?
Image submission is open from now until January 16, 11:59pm California time. In other words, don't wait and send us your work today.
How do I submit my photograph?
All details and submission form is here – http://plusonecollection.com/submit/
Will we be able to see what's being submitted?
Yes. Once submissions start coming in, I will setup agallery where you can see all that's being sent to us and you'll be able to find your image too.
How will the book get published?
The book will be printed and bound professionally through Oddi in Iceland. They're known for working with photographers and for their great quality of printing.
How can we afford a print run?
To afford the cost of publication, we launched a crowdsourcing campaign through Indiegogo ("Kickstarter" that allows charitable causes). There are all levels of contribution there, so take a look – http://igg.me/p/305566/x/2020311
How do I pre-order a copy?
Just like last year, for limited time only, you can order Limited Edition of the book that will ship numbered, signed, and with a fine art print. The only way to order it this year is through Indiegogo campaign that will run through January. These copies will ship first and before book officially goes on sale. So again, don't wait and chip in today!
When will the book ship?
We're shooting for the same time frame as last year – so sometime in early spring.
What cause are we supporting this year?
We are very proud to have teamed up with the Kilgoris Project. In short, we will use any proceeds from the sale of the book and buy digital cameras for underpriveledged children in the school in Kenya. But it's a much bigger project than that. Please watch the video!
Who made this video?
We proud to be still working onwho made this video is our chief designer for everything pixel related.
Ivan, why are you not smiling in the video?
I'm Russian. We never do. But I'm always smiling inside.
Kmm. I still want to help.
