Competition Set Subjects
Minimalism is a style employed by many 20th century artists, using a minimum number of components such as colour, shape, line and texture. When trying to achieve minimalism, one rule is to keep it simple.
Graffiti for the purpose of this challenge could be freehand paint, marker pen or stencil or combination of any of the elements. You will need to add another element / angle to make it your own art.
Sport photography is about capturing the moment, often with the subject in sharp focus against a somewhat blurred background.
A photograph can depict emotion(s) in the subject(s) and/or it can evoke emotion(s) in the viewer of the photo. Capturing emotion(s) in photographs is about capturing moments in time that hopefully tell a story or encourage the viewer to imagine a story.
A photograph of yourself taken by yourself.
Forced perspective is an optical illusion created by placing objects far from each other to make one appear larger or smaller than it really is. For example one person (in the distance) appears to be standing on another person’s outstretched hand (in the foreground).
Structure is an arrangement and organization of interrelated elements in a material object or system, or the object or system so organized.
Small world / Macro
For this competition, any close-up photograph of a subject is acceptable, with the lower magnification limit (e.g. 1:4, 1:8 etc.) left to the discretion of the photographer.
Reflections are "the throwing back of light by a body or surface", with the surface being reflective because it is liquid, or a mirror, or because it is highly polished.
