Competition – The Portrait: Up Close and Personal

About the Call for Entry

The Portrait: Up Close and Personal

Portraits tell a story, depict a character”, reveal emotion, demonstrate sensitivity and illustrate an intimate connection with your subject.

The greatest challenge and most important element in a successful portrait is an intimate connection with the subject. The ways in which you explore this connection, going beneath the surface and finding what is the essence of the portrait determines its success as a representation of your subject.

Explore different styles and methods of making revealing portraits that reflect not just the subject but you the photographer as well.  Demonstrate the sensitivity necessary to move beyond literal renderings to more intimate portraits. Create images that go below the surface and penetrate deeply into a subject’s character.

Prize Awards: First Place – $400, Second Place – $300, Third Place – $200 and Three Honorable Mentions. Prizes and Awards include a free “The Portrait” Exhibition Book.
