Call for Entry: Photo of the Month — Portrait

Juried by: The Image Flow

We’re excited to announce our Image of the Month photo contest!

Submission is free and only images uploaded this month are eligible, so keep submitting new photographs. Beyond being featured in our gallery, newsletter, and bragging rights, the winner will receive a 16×20 giclée paper print. The moral of the story – upload awesome images every month!

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 Speed, the competition is open to professional and amateur photographers globally.

Photography Competition Theme

This call for entry is all about the portrait, and mastery thereof.
By definition, a portrait is a picture of a person. Typically, it is a picture of their face, including head, and shoulders.
A masterful portrait demonstrates a keen understanding of the use of light to accentuate a subject’s features. It can also expressly capture a stunning representation of the subject’s being or current state of being.

Show us your favorite photos demonstrating masterful illustration of the concept of portraiture.


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.
