January Photo Challenge: New Year, New You
Now that you’ve reflected on what’s to come in 2011... maybe made some wishes and a few resolutions... it’s time to show the world the New You.
This month’s Photo Challenge theme is called New Year, New You because we want pictures of you -- who you are, who you think you are, who you want to be.
Acceptable entries include:
-- Self portraits...
-- Creative interpretations of “self”...
-- Photos of you including reflections, creative light sources, shadows, etc...
-- Collages of multiple images in one...
-- Photos of elements that make you who you are -- objects that are symbolic in your life... your hands busy at work... you reflected through your family... etc...
-- Anything (barring nudity or profanity) that you feel expresses who YOU are.
And, I’m serious about the nudity and profanity. Let’s keep this family-friendly. And only ONE entry per person.
Remember to use good composition, exposure, and focus if you’d like to win.
Here are some great examples to get you inspired:
Submissions for January’s Challenge are due by 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, January 31. You can submit your photos by clicking on the "Photo Challenge" link on our website.
This month’s first-place winner will get a $30 gift certificate to the AWAI E-Bookstore, and the first-, second-, and third-place winners will all be entered into the Hall of Fame, to compete for the 2011 $2,000 Grand Prize.
Remember, only ONE entry per person. Details about contest guidelines are here.
Good luck, and have fun!
