Save Your Photos Month

Save Your Photos Month

The Save Your Photos initiative is a public service outreach campaign developed by The Association of Personal Photo Organizers (APPO) to teach individuals how they can preserve life’s irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents, in the event of unforeseen accident or disaster.

Every year during the month of September, photo organizers, companies, and retailers work together to raise awareness and educate the public about the benefits of safeguarding their photos. Participation ranges from social media sharing, online classes, local presentations, weekend retreats and community scanning events. This month-long initiative culminates on the last Saturday of September known as International Save Your Photos Day.

Plan to get involved! 

Host an Event

Organize an event on Save Your Photos Day or any other day during September. Local events in your community are a great way to gather people together for a common purpose while positioning you as an expert. You could partner with other photo organizers and local businesses to help increase your reach while sharing the workload. We will provide an event kit which contains an event guide to give you ideas about the type of events you could offer.

Your Event Kit will contain:

  • A ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation in two sizes (4:3 and 16:9) complete with presentation notes. You’ll be able to alter text and add your own branding to this power point.

  • A PowerPoint template with SYP branding for you to create your own presentation, in two sizes (4:3 and 16:9). Want more flexibility with your presentation? Use our presentation for inspiration and create your own presentation with your own photos and agenda.

  • An Event Guide offering you tips and resources for organizing your event complete with a checklist.

  • A press release to help you promote your event locally.

*All power point presentations and support material are the intellectual property of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers and can only be used for it's intended purpose during Save Your Photos Month. If you hold regular events as part of your business model, you must refrain from using the term Save Your Photo Month, Save Your Photos, Save Your Photos Day for events that take place throughout the year. This campaign, all materials, logos and other intellectual property can only be used during the campaign period beginning late August through the first week of October.
