The Image Flow will evaluate each submission on composition, color, contrast, and overall quality when making their selections. In addition to technical components, they will also consider subject interest, point of view, and whether the image tells a story.

Under the monthly theme of Uncommon Places 2022, the competition is open to professional and amateur photographers globally.

Photography Competition Theme

Uncommon Places – For this theme, we’ve been inspired by Stephen Shore’s second book, “Uncommon Places”. Using an 8×10 view camera, he captured “snapshots” of his road trips across America. 

Stephen Shore is one of the great contemporary American color photographers and one of the early pioneers of color as well.
