Journeys & Adventures

Capture the extraordinary experiences which are an essential part of travelling, the discoveries, the adventures which inspire us and makes travel thrilling and astonishing, the differences in the way other cultures live.

Fascinating faces and characters

We ask you to introduce us to the people you encountered, showing us their lives and expression from daily life: portraits or people in the context of their culture. Photographing people often requires interaction and communication with the subject and can, by its very nature, be intrusive. We want you to show us your skill to capture people, individuals, groups, community, at work, at leisure and at festivals.

The beauty of the nature

Capture those vibrant moments and express what nature means to you! Captivating images of wild places with a unique perspective, from expansive landscape vistas of forests, deserts and mountains to the micro habitats of plants and other flora. Images may include water environments of oceans, lakes and rivers with images taken above or under water including waves, tide pools and other water scenes.

Animals in their Environment

Wildlife as a way to evoke the atmosphere and the sense of place and to convey how an animal is an integral part of its environment. Celebrate and illustrate the rich diversity of life on Earth and inspire action to protect and conserve it through the power of imagery.

Architecture & Urban Spaces

Old buildings define a past while new buildings shape a future, and the spaces around them create the interaction between architecture, inhabitants and environment. Capture the architecture of buildings, urban spaces or both in a single, strong image where they are a key element of the image.

Sports in action

From sporting events to personal fitness, we want to highlight the emotions of physical exercise and competitiveness. We want to showcase the most creative and captivating sports photography as an art form. We’re looking for defining action shots, decisive moments and displays of true comradery to help bring people closer the exciting world of action sports.

Story-telling

We want you to show us your skills with visual story-telling by photographing people, nature, wildlife, music, sport, etc… and to tell a story in a portfolio from five to nine images. Think of this as a story in pictures and a way to convey something of the character of your subjects and create an article, illustrated without words.


Splash of Colors
