Definitions for monthly competitions in 2018

by on Dec.10, 2017, under Competitions

February – The Beauty of Nature

An image taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures.

March – Abandoned

All entries in monochrome.

A subject, perhaps in a state of decay or isolation, which has been abandoned.

April – Circles

An image in which circles feature as the main design element. This can be any circular object, or a formation in which circular objects feature prominently.

May – Action / Motion

An image in which a sensation of movement is the primary focus, and the animation of the subject is clearly evident.

June – Triptych

Three images presented as one, bringing together either a story, similar compositional elements, colours, or similar subject matter – anything that draws the pictures together as a group.

July – Table top / Still life

An image depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically able to be accommodated within the confines of a tabletop and embracing a wide range of objects arranged in a visually pleasing or creative manner.

August – Architecture / Urban spaces

All entries in monochrome.

Images that capture scenes within a city or town that capture the essence of the location rather than simply a record of location. The image can be a picture of one or more buildings or structures, or a smaller portion of a building. Human figures may be included.

September – Faces and Characters

An image a single person, or group of people, providing some insight into their personality, interests, occupation or chosen lifestyle. An illustration of the person as an individual rather than simply as a photographic subject.

October – Fire, smoke or steam

An image in which fire, smoke, steam or a combination of these elements is a dominant feature of the image.

November – Series

A single composite image combining multiple images all of which relate to one another by way of a common theme. That theme may be the subject matter, technique, story or any other identifiable relationship.
