OPEN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST – SUNSET / SUNRISE 2019

OPEN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST – SUNSET / SUNRISE 2019

 

    Submission Deadline: July 15, 2019 (12:00 Midnight EST)
    Curator Selection: on or before July 18, 2019
    Artist Notification: on or before July 19, 2019
    Grant Announcement: on or before July 19, 2019
    Exhibit Opens: July 31, 2019

 

Photo-Competition.online is hosting the photography contest “Sunsets 2019”.  This contest would include sunsets and sunrises. There will be 1 grant winner and 9 honorable mentions. This competition is open to all photographers worldwide.

 

Almost all sunsets/sunrises are bold, brilliant, and rich in color.  Unless you want to focus more on other parts of the scenery, it usually won't suffice to say something like "the sky was bright orange and red". Figure out what's unique about the sunset/sunrise in particular and tell the story seen in their mind’s eye.

 

- Ten photographers will be selected for an online group exhibit, "Sunsets 2019"; the exhibit and photographers will be extensively marketed on this website and over the internet, including YouTube.  In this exhibit the selected artist's photos along with the photographers name, title, and size of the photo will be displayed.

 

- One photographer's work will be selected to receive the “Bobby Lashomb Photography Grant” of $100. This artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online presentations.
     
- Ten photographers will receive an photography contest certificate through the Photo-Competition.online website and will be available for life.

 

Theme and Selection:

One of the most magical moments in a day is sunset or sunrise. Sunset is the time when the sun goes down in the horizon creating a beautiful view that the strongest words aren't enough to describe its magic. Indeed, the phenomenon of the sun drowning in the endless sea makes a magnificent prospect with its colors going from red to orange then a mixture of warm, dreamy colors like purple and indigo. Moreover, at some special places, trees especially palms are added to this amazing painting of mother nature looking like guards protecting this piece of art.

 

Sunset & Sunrises are true magic from its colors to its protective trees given to us by the heavens.  Don't feel constrained by images - Whenever I'm describing an image and feel stuck, I search for one on google and try describing that. This is a good tool for getting started, but don't feel like you have to describe the image exactly. In the last image, I might have added something about birds flying across the sky, just because that would look pretty.

Have the sunset foreshadow the mood of the scene - This isn't always easy (I'm personally terrible at it), but when written correctly can be absolutely gorgeous. If you have two lovers watching the sunset together, highlight how beautiful it is. If your character is mourning the death of a loved one, highlight how the beauty of the sunset eventually is replaced by blackness (or something along those lines).
