THEME SUMMARY

Since the beginning of photography, portraits have been one of the most important genres in photography. The word, portrait, often alludes to human portraits. However, in the recent years, that may not be the case anymore. Maybe, they don’t need to be human figures. In this competition, we want to reevaluate what portraits can be. Free yourself from the conventional ideas of portraiture and explore this genre as it feels right for you. And of course, it may still be the standard human portraits as well!
[Submission Period] from September 1 to October 31
