THEME:
THE HUMAN
BODY

CLOSING SOON!
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31 DECEMBER 2019

A home for the brain, the heart and the soul. Let’s look at the image of the human body… from the head to the toes; its flaws, its quirks, uniqueness and beauty. Freeze a detail or a scene that captures our human nature. With over seven billion bodies to choose from, show us the ones that count.

Portraiture, candid, studio, conceptual, documentary… any genre, and tasteful nudity welcome.
