The Faversham 365 photo project will launch again this year, exactly a decade since the original.
From July 1 2007 to June 30 2008, thousands of pictures were taken across the town, capturing how each photographer saw their beloved Faversham – and 10 years down the line, it’s time to click away once again.
The project, organised by Kent Creative Arts, will choose one photo for every single day of the year and display them in an exhibition and hopefully a book.
It will be the fourth Faversham 365 project after its launch in 2007, and there have since been similar ventures in Sheppey, Canterbury and Whitstable.
In Whitstable, more than 3,500 pictures were submitted, and Kent Creative Arts director Nathalie Banaigs hopes that this Faversham version will be even more successful.
Nathalie, who is based at the Alexander Centre in Preston Street, said: “I can’t believe it but it is exactly 10 years and we are very excited to be launching it again. After talking to people in the town, they can’t wait either.

“People and things in the town have definitely changed in the last 10 years.
“New developments, shops have changed, babies will have grown into children.
“But we don’t necessarily have to focus on the changes.
“We want this project to be a fresh one.”
Nathalie hopes that they will be able to exhibit the pictures during the Hop Festival 2018, and – with the benefit of some financial support – she hopes there will be a book like last time.
Artist Bob Lamoon, who is also involved in the project, said: “I am very excited about the 10th anniversary of Faversham 365 and that we are marking the occasion with another exhibition and book.
“I have always seen these 365 projects as not merely artistic photographic ventures but more that they will become valuable historic records of people and place.”
The Faversham Camera Club will also be involved.
