Categories
FASHION/PORTRAITURE
From glamour to grunge, show us some style; self-portraits welcome.

DOCUMENTARY/
PHOTOJOURNALISM

Budding reporters, hit the beat. Both the front lines and the back rooms count, with plenty of room for the in-between. Show us the issues, people and events in your periphery.

STILL LIFE
Evoke the aroma in a steaming cup of joe or send us the best from your studio lighting setups—if it's stationary, it counts.

TRAVEL/LANDSCAPE
From your summer fling in Paris to your hiking trip to Machu Picchu, or simply hanging out in the hood or your favorite day at the beach—we want to see where you've been.

FINE ART/PERSONAL WORK
Your chance to get creative and conceptual— the offbeat, unique and beautiful work that doesn't fit in the above categories.

PRECOLLEGE—ANY SUBJECT
OK, you're making the grade, you've got what it takes. If you're a high school student and a budding shutterbug, show us your shots from any of the above categories and prove it. Don't worry, you'll be judged against your peers.

MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO
Budding directors, get moving and submit your best clips—the sky's the limit—up to 20 minutes in length or 100 MB file size.
