Abstract
A large fraction of the RR Lyrae stars are modulated on time scales of typically tens to hundreds of days. Though this phenomenon, denoted the Blazhko effect, has been discovered a century ago (Blazhko 1907), there is still no consensus on its cause. The Blazhko Project is an international collaboration focused on understanding the modulation. We discuss some results of the photometric multi-site campaigns so far, and their implications for the models proposed to explain the Blazhko effect.
