Photography is more accessible today than ever—and that’s something worth celebrating. MoMA Photo Club (MPC) is a Webby Award–winning participatory social media initiative launched in May 2021 in conjunction with the exhibition Fotoclubismo: Brazilian Modernist Photography, 1946–1964. Engage with photography themes from anywhere in the world inspired by exhibitions at MoMA, artists, artworks, art movements, and more.
We’re excited to invite you to join the MoMA Photo Club. Share your photos on social media using #MoMAPhotoClub. Scroll down for our latest challenge.
Curator Sarah Meister and mountaineer Conrad Anker invite YOU to get outside and get creative with our first photo challenge: Abstractions from Nature.
By tagging photos using #MoMAPhotoClub, you grant The Museum of Modern Art (“MoMA”) (and those authorized by MoMA) a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, sublicensable, non-exclusive license to publicly display, distribute, reproduce, and create derivative works of such photos, in whole or in part (including, but not limited to, any associated captions and handles), in any media now existing or later developed, for any purpose, including, but not limited to, advertising and promotion, and inclusion on MoMA’s website and social media channels.
Nothing in the permissions we ask for takes away your rights to your tagged photos. These permissions, or license, do two things: acknowledge your rights to your photos, and make it possible for us to share your photos with the world. We won't sell your photos, or seek or receive any compensation for promoting your amazing submissions to the #MoMAPhotoClub challenges.
