Competition Definitions

JanuarySet Subject … Abstract (Print/Digital)
 Sometimes called non-objective, experimental, conceptual or concrete photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials.
FebruaryOpen Section (Audio Visual)
 A subject of no more than 5-minutes in length
MarchSet Subject … Self Portrait (Print/Digital)
  A genre of art in which the artist depicts his or her self-image. Most often composed in paintings or photographs, artists have used both photorealist and expressionist styles to convey their senses of self, using methods of pictorial representation.
MaySet Subject … Puddles (Print/Digital)
 Puddles are an incredibly useful if perhaps surprising source for reflections. Puddles are generally shallow and found in protected areas or depressions, which means that they are likely to hold smooth, still water. They can also be found in many different locations, providing a variety of options for subjects and compositions. Finally, puddles are so mundane and small that they are often overlooked, so you can create unique and surprising images that others likely missed
JuneOpen Section (Audio Visual)
 A subject of no more than 5-minutes in length
JulySet Subject … Morning Light (Print/Digital)
 Golden hour is the period shortly after sunrise and before sunset. Many photographers see it as the best time to take photos as it is when the sun gives off a softer, reddish-pink light that effortlessly makes for dramatic and artistic images that are perfect for various photography niches like portraiture, landscape, and wedding photography.
SeptemberSet Subject … Single Tree (Print/Digital)
 Trees are a classic photography subject. Besides being beautiful, they work great in a wide range of moods, conditions, and genres. They’re photogenic in all kinds of weather, from heavy snow to scorching heat, and they work great as the background, foreground, or sole subject of a photo. They have texture, colour, and basically everything you could want from a subject.
October3.2.1 Section (Audio Visual)
