iReport Leap Day challenge

Leap Day, the quadrennial day we use to let the calendar catch up with the Earth's rotation around the Sun, is fast approaching and we're gearing up to mark it by having some fun.



On Wednesday, February 29, we're challenging you to take a leap and capture it on camera. Share with us a photo or video of yourself, a friend, or a group of pals, in mid-air jump! We'll gather the best submissions in a special Open Story that will showcase leaps around the world on an interactive map and timeline.


The assignment will only be open from the start of February 29 in the early timezones of places like New Zealand, through the evening hours of the late timezones of Alaska and the North American Pacific coast. That's only 48 hours, so if you want to take part in the fun you'll have to be prepared. Here are five things you can do now:


1. Mark your calendar

2. Sign up for the assignment

3. Download the CNN app, or the iReport app, to your mobile device, so you can have a quick way to make your submission

4. Tell your friends

5. Warm up those leg muscles!


Will you take the leap with us? See you here on February 29.

maybe you should use Natsumi Hayashi (of yowayowacamera blog) as spokesperson for jumping since she's been doing that for years with her levitation series.

@rdb33 - No worries, you don't need to have a smart phone. I'd suggest using a regular point-and-shoot camera, or any other camera, to take a leap shot.
