2021 Digital Image Project Competition
2021 DIGITAL IMAGE PROJECT COMPETITION RULES
The Digital Image Project (the project) is open to members only. You can choose any theme you like. You can make it an easy project or more challenging, trying new genres of photography.
Project themes could be individual images which each stand alone, but are consistent with the theme. Alternatively, the project images could create a progressive story or documentary where each image relies on the next to explain or compliment the previous, culminating in a final image to complete the story.
The nomination requirements are:
Your Full Name
Your Project Name
Your First Intent Artist statement (75 words)
Your Final Artist Statement (100-125 words)
Once you have nominated your project, you may not change your project name.
