Photo Contest Summary (***click here for LIVE Part 2***)
The concept of beauty crosses over many genres in photography: portrait, still life, landscape, nature, sport, fashion, and more. But the unifying thread is the perceptual experience of pleasure, satisfaction, and emotional well-being. If “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” what do you behold? Show us.
NOTE: Beauty also inspires, which relates specifically to our beneficiary/charity partner: the Josephine Herrick Project (formerly Rehabilitation Through Photography). JHP provides free programs to inspire teens, adults, and seniors with the visual language of photography. JHP will receive a significant donation from your entry proceeds (see below).
Our head judge, Robert Farber, who will pick the winners from a preliminary selection by the Phoozl Photo Pros panel (if a significant number of entries), is looking for images that illustrate the theme in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
