Submit three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. With short-form storytelling all the rage, and considering that storytelling is a key to good photography, your assignment is to tell (show) a complete story in 3 (separate) images. The photo story should have a beginning, middle, and end (and indicate the story order). Think of it like a play or drama: Setup, Confrontation, Resolution. Get creative! The judge will be looking for images that meet the theme assignment in interesting ways that engage the viewer; plus normal judging criteria of: originality and creativity, photo technique and/or quality, and overall artistic merit.
