Photography Competition Theme


With Halloween lurking around the corner, this photo of the month challenge seeks photographs that use darkness as a key concept and driving force in an image.

By definition, darkness is a partial or total absence of light. Figuratively, it can be used to represent a force of wickedness or even great mystery.

Submit up to 5 photographs that photographically capture your best representation of the key concept – Dark.




This call is open to all artists worldwide, both amateur and professional.

All entries must be original works of art and entirely the work of the entrant. Open to photography mediums (film, digital, alternative process, printmaking, digital art) except film/video & mixed media.
