Day in the Life shoot day on June 22

It’s time for the Driftwood’s annual Day in the Life of Salt Spring Island photo shoot, and everyone is invited to contribute.

This year marks the 21st consecutive event that sees photographs taken over a 24-hour period and published in a special pull-out section later in July. The 2024 date and time is Saturday, June 22 at 6 a.m. to Sunday, June 23 at 6 a.m., which falls on the island’s first Indigenous Peoples Weekend.

People are welcome to submit one, two or up to 20 photos of friends, family, pets, coworkers or things and people seen out and about on the island during that time period. Photos should be at least one megabyte in size and include caption information plus the time of day the photo was taken.

Submissions deadline is Wednesday, July 10. Photos can be emailed to, sent by other transfer services, or brought into the Driftwood office on a thumb drive.

While registration is not required, having an idea of how many people plan to participate is appreciated. Driftwood editor Gail Sjuberg is the contact person at or 250-537-9933 and can answer any questions people may have.
