Take a photo and tag it on Instagram or Twitter with hashtag #samksmile (or in Finnish #samkhymyhuuli). Alternatively, you can send the photo to SAMK Communications: viestinta.samk@samk.fi

Act during this week, that is during 30 September – 6 October 2019.

A nice photo can be anything: there may be people but there´s no need for people – don´t think too much. The photo can be a small detail or a comprehensive one, taken by mobile phone or systems camera, posed or non-posed, filter or no filter. You can edit the photo or send it as it is. The photo can also be a max. 8-second video clip.

You can send the photo in two ways:

  • Send the photo by email. Add your name (photographer) and your contact information (email address and phone number) to the message, with subject line samksmile.
  • In Instagram or Twitter add hashtag #samksmile (and #mysamk)

Tell something about the photo that would be nice for the others to know: why does it make you smile – and maybe what, where, who etc…. We will use these photos in an article on our webpage.

We obey certain crowdsourcing rules of play, check them here.

If you need further information, please contact: viestinta.samk(at)samk.fi

The photo above is from the crowdsoursing photos on a afternoon in February 2019.
