THEME:
YOUTHHOOD

CLOSED FOR ENTRIES – RESULTS COMING SOON
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 30 JUNE 2020

“Youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

We don’t arrive fully formed. From birth to toddler to child, teen and pre-adult – life is an exploration and we’re moulded in our youth. Dreams, fears, freedom, experimentation, play… The theme is as broad as you want it to be. The only limitation is to capture a scene or a detail that shows habits, experiences or behavior of the young.

Portraiture, studio, candid, conceptual, documentary, street. All genres welcome. Show us youthhood, from any perspective!
