It's almost time for us to get to work on our annual Portrait edition - and, as always, we'd like your help.

The theme for this year's Portrait is '24 Hours,' and it will consist of photos and short stories about one 24-hour period in our community.

The 24 hours we have chosen to document is Friday, Jan. 18, from 12:01 a.m. until midnight Friday night, and we want to include everything happening in the Aloha, Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood area that we can include in this special magazine section.

The Portrait itself will come out in The Times and Beaverton Valley Times on Thursday, Feb. 28.

But the big day - the only 24 hours we care about - is Friday, Jan. 18.

We'll have our own reporters and photographers out all day that day, shooting pictures at the local hospitals, police and fire stations, schools, public buildings and gathering places, parks and local business areas and neighborhoods.

How do you get involved? Take pictures of whatever is going on around you, at home, at school, at work, in your neighborhood or around town.

We're interested in shots of your family, your pets, your classmates, your parents' (or your own) work places, whether it's a farm, a small business, a home-based business or a multi-story office building. You might take photos of your afternoon at the library, the mall or the big game Friday night. It's all eligible for our special '24 Hours' edition of Portrait if it happens Friday, Jan. 18.

Simply e-mail us JPEG files of any photos you take that day, and be sure to include information identifying who is in the pictures and what's going on, either in a Word attachment or simply in the main e-mail message.
