Here are a couple of great ways to share beyond just social media. First, the Guardian newspaper is now running a regular photography assignment on a weekly theme. You can send them your photos and they’ll publish their favorites in Guardian Witness, their user-generated content of the Guardian.

The next theme is ‘copy.’ The closing date is 12 March at 10 am. Read the full details here.

There is a blue ‘Contribute’ button and you can also use the GuardianWitness smartphone app or the Guardian app and search for ‘GuardianWitness assignments’.

Next, we love this one!  the Concept Bank is a web-based platform for open source performance. They are asking you to submit your performance work written as an instruction manual no longer than 150 word and they will perform your concept during a festival in the Netherlands.

In the Netherlands, the festival season usually starts at the end of March. The Concept Bank will participate in various festivals in the spring and summer of 2015. Sometimes they will show up as officially invited participants, but most of the time they appear to be paying guests. At strategic spots at festivals The Concept Bank will create a mobile office to share your/their performance concepts freely to the interested public. They are looking for good concepts to put together their Festival Package. If you want to submit a work, write it as clearly as possible, write it as a manual. Keep in mind that the performers will usually not be professional artists.If you want to propose one or more work(s), please send it/them to package@theconceptbank.orgThey also need:

-your name,

-the title of the work and

-the year of production,

-a link to a website with professional information,

Please understand that they can only select your works if all this information is included!

The concept should be no longer then 150 words!
The works selected for the Festival Package might also be added to their website TheConceptBank.org (with your permission)

Deadline: April 15, 2015

TheConceptBank.org is a web-based platform for open source performance. The bank is filled with concepts of many good artists; these concepts are written as simple manuals.  Visitors of TheConceptBank will be able to choose and print a concept and to perform the selected work on a time and place of their choice. After executing the work, the user will be asked to send us his/her experiences which we will then forward to the artists.

Theconceptbank.org is a non-profit initiative, the use of the databank will be free for everybody.
