iRIGA campaign continues on July. For the whole year, residents of Riga are invited to send their photos once a month covering several themes. This time it is "Pilsēta, kas dzied un dejo" ("City that sings and dances").

Catch the moment from Song and Dance Festival, take a picture of musicians and guests at some party event. Maybe you will find the right moment on the street where musicians play, or it could be some house party, as well, that is the invitation of organisers from "Rīgas fotomēnesis" ("Riga Photography Month").

Themes of iRIGA are announced in mass media once a month, but campaign organisers are waiting applicants during a full month. Photos can be taken with both professional camera or mobile phone. Application process for the 6th theme continues until 31 July adding photo to specially created Flickr group.
