Themed Challenge – Spring

Spring is all about welcoming the new and renewing the old. This season often breathes of something fresh, making photography in this period particularly popular due to the blooms of flora, abundance of fauna and typically warmer weather.

~

Capture a moment that might mark the revival of something old, some key words for reference are: renewal, life, bloom & colour.

You’ve got a whole month until the end of spring! So shoot before exams to procrastinate or after once you’re free!

Some Tips and Hints from Our Judges

1. A good and strong photograph usually does not need a title or caption to ‘tell’ us what’s going on in the photograph.

2. Think about what you want to convey in the photo. Take into consideration the composition and framing of your photo.

3. Think about the various techniques you can use, such as playing with lighting or textures.

4. Think outside of the box. This month’s theme allows you to be creative and push the boundaries.

We want to see you submit a photo(s) which reflects our monthly challenges. We will judge entries based not only on this criteria, but also on other photographic components.

Only have a phone? No Problem!
We don’t care what device you use. Know its limitations and work within the confines.
