Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmood
The goal this weekend is to create photos and videos that creatively interpret specific moods, like this underwhelmed, sleepy cat by @rojiman. Whether you’re feeling amused, energetic, mellow or even bored, here’s how to get started:
If you’re with friends, look for ways to playfully exaggerate a mood without using words — like all yawning together to show being tired, or contrasting one friend’s silliness with another friend’s seriousness.
Consider how an emotion can be conveyed through props, colors and even sounds. Colors like blue and gray can create a sense of calm, while happiness can be found in overhearing laughter at a public park.
If you’re not sure what mood best suits you — try some on in stories via face filters and stickers, and share your favorite creations to feed.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmood hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Inspired by traditional Dior wedding dresses, #MariaGraziaChiuri chose to add lily-of-the-valley embroideries in organza to lend a graceful and subtly natural charm. The petites mains in our ateliers then worked their mysterious magic to ensure that Miranda Kerr would look perfect for her big day. #DiorSavoirFaire#StarsinDior

Child marriage has long been an issue in Yemen, one of the few countries in the region without a legal minimum age of marriage. Attempts to set 18 as the minimum marrying age collapsed with the outbreak of the conflict in 2015 and it is estimated that, now, child marriage rates could be much higher. A UNFPA-INTERSOS assessment, which interviewed over 250 community members, local leaders and survivors of child marriage for insight into how families are coping with the conflict, stated that most participants “were of the opinion that child marriage has increased in their community. They all stated that the conflict pushed the practice,” according to the assessment’s findings. While more comprehensive assessments are difficult to do in conflict situations, the report also suggests that girls are being married off even younger. Of the child marriage survivors interviewed in the northern part of the country, 72 per cent were married between ages 13 and 15. Of those in the south, 62 per cent were married before age 16.
This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo, including this one. The show, which opened June 1 and runs through Sept. 24, is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice, which occurs in more than 50 countries spanning many cultures and religions. It also includes information about our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed, which seeks to protect girls' rights and #endchildmarriage. @letoitdelagrandearche#girls#child#conflict#color#letgirlslearn
