20. Humming in Monotone


Contest goal:
Your goal is to take a photo, of an object, human or animal and turn it into a black and white photo. Whatever you photograph is up to you, but don’t forget that not everything looks good in black and white, so pick wisely and have fun!

 

19. After the rain


Contest goal:
Judging from past contests, most of us like photographing flowers. For this contest we want you to photograph a single flower. There can only be 1 flower in the photograph. Close-ups are fine, but no extreme macros. We want to be able to see what kind of flower it is.

 

18. Great Balance


Contest goal:
A person caught sleeping or napping somewhere other than their bed or normal sleeping place such as cots, mats, etc. At least more than half of the body must be visible. No head shots only. A fully or mostly clothed person sleeping. If visible the eye or eyes must be shut. The subject does not have to be lying down. Someone in a chair or park bench or anywhere that they would not normally sleep for the night such as the airport or on the street.

 

17. Nature’s Two


Contest goal:
In this contest, there must be two of the main subject. They don’t necessarily have to match, like a pair of shoes, a pair of gloves or a pair of aces. It could be two different windows in the same shot, two people, two bikes, two houses, two apples, etc. Whatever the subject, there must be two (only two) of them.

Bicycles….we all love them. They are great for exercise and for getting around. The wind through your hair, the strengthening of heart, lungs and legs, eco-friendly and economical transportation — all benefits of the bicycle. Your mission is to photograph a bicycle.There can only be one bicycle in your shot, with someone on it or without. You can also include any part of a bicycle. Take a close-up of the chain or the handlebars. The photo doesn’t have to be of the entire bicycle. Tricycles also included. Have fun and see how creative you can be with your bicycle (tricycle, unicycle) photos.
