The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center’s (PPAC) Philly Photo Day received a staggering 900 submissions, triple last year’s total. Every photo will be printed and displayed at the Crane Arts Building, 1400 N. American Street. Opening reception will be Thursday, Nov. 10th from 6-9 PM. Buy a print of any photo for $25–it’s a heck of a deal and supports a great cause in PPAC. And check out a second round  of great photos we’ll publish Monday.

Peter Woodall is the co-editor of Hidden City Daily. He is a graduate of the UC Berkeley School of Journalism, and a former newspaper reporter with the Biloxi Sun Herald and the Sacramento Bee. He worked as a producer for Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane and wrote a column about neighborhood bars for PhiladelphiaWeekly.com.
