SET SUBJECT DESCRIPTIONS 2023/24

The following describes each of the Set Subject Topic to provide guidance, examples and some boundaries for the set subject. Note that it is at the discretion of the Competition Secretary whether a submitted image meets the guidelines., it is

 

  • DOORS & WINDOWS - Doors and windows can say so much about our homes and buildings, including our own personality and our social culture.  They send many varying messages ranging from “welcome” to “go away”.  The competition brief is to photographically portray doors and\or windows with a message or a story.

  • A SONG - This is a conceptual topic to select a song of your choice and portray it’s message or your interpretation through a photographic image.  The song must have lyrics, whereas  musical pieces without lyrics are not eligible.  For instance, Strauss’ The Blue Danube Waltz (aka 2001: A Space Odyssey theme) and Rocky’s Theme are not allowed.

  • ABSTRACT IN NATURE - Photographers often share abstract art that question the viewer’s creative mind.  Often such images are found in man-made objects, but this set subject challenges you to find abstract images within the natural world (no man-made structures or elements).
