NEW: Eclipse Glasses Redistribution Program
Astronomers Without Borders will be announcing a program to collect eclipse glasses for distribution to other countries for future eclipses. Hold on to your glasses! Ask the company or organization you got them from if they will be taking part. We will announce details soon after the eclipse. We have corporate partners who will be receiving and processing them for us. Please DO NOT send them to AWB! Sign up for our newsletter for more details or follow us on Facebook.

Calling All GAM Attendees

In preparation for the upcoming 2015 GAM, we are putting together a promotional video trailer. And we need YOUR participation!

If you have photos or videos (less than one mintue clips) of events in your locale of previous GAMs, please send them to us. Your photos can be featured in the 2015 GAM trailer that will be put out on all AWB website and social channels.

Global Astronomy Month each April is the world's largest global celebration of astronomy, bringing together cultures worldwide under the motto "One People, One Sky."
Hundreds of events are held all over the globe, and we would love to showcase your efforts from 2014 and the years before.

Send us your GAM-pictures of your community and of participants in past GAM events, and we will choose the best ones to appear in a GAM promotional video for 2015! Even we will use some video-sequences if you can provide video material.

Here are the requirements:

Show people having fun at GAM, whether looking through a telescope, admiring art, or whatever your community was doing;
Include a caption with each photo explaining what is happening, and identifying who is in the photo (if you can);
Also tell us who took the photo. (Please, before you send, ensure that we have permission to republish this photo on the AWB website and related materials.)
Ensure photos are in JPG format, at a minimum resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.
Provide your videos (maximum duration about ~ 1 minute) in mp4 format: minimum resolution 720p (1280×720 Pixel) better 1080p (1920×1080) – Please send a download link in your e-mail!


Send entries to: [email protected]
Deadline: Saturday, 1 Nov. 2014.
Please attach, if possible, a download link - this is better than attaching images directly to the e-mail.
For providing your video material a download link is mandatory.

Before sending your pictures and video, please, have a look at GAM 2014 and GAM 2013 trailer to see which kind of pictures were used:

Show people having fun at GAM, whether looking through a telescope, admiring art, or whatever your community was doing;

Also, send nice night landscape images, as possible as with people under the starry sky!
We are interested to have contributions from all over the world, from different places from our planet, with different sky conditions, activities and local symbols: normal urban and rural areas including people and/or buildings, exotic places, desert, arctic areas, etc.

Keep in mind: One People, One Sky!
