Photo Challenge: Photojournalism/Photo Story

Another month, another challenge! For September, we’re doing something different. Photographers are invited to submit a short photo story or journalistic piece consisting of a series of images and accompanying writeup. The theme is open, and the style can be anything from a news reportage piece to a personal holiday story – it’s up to you. The only requirement is that you submit no more than 5 images and keep your writing concise (roughly 10 paragraphs or less).

Our challenge this month is being sponsored by !Mo Camera Straps, makers of fashionable and practical camera straps. There will be two prizes awarded:

  • One Gift Pack consisting of two neoprene quick release camera straps and one cotton tape camera strap of your choice. (Valued at $74 USD): Will be awarded to the strongest overall submission, judged based on subject matter and photographic content.
  • One Cotton tape quick release camera strap of your choice. (Valued at $25 USD): Will be awarded to the strongest image, judged purely on photographic merit.

This challenge is starting late, so I will extend the timeframe for a full 30 days, closing on the 5th of October. Additionally, photos must have been taken in the past 6 months – dated April 1 or later. To enter, simply create an account with Shuttertalk if you haven’t already, and post your entry as a single post to this discussion thread.

Thanks again to our sponsor, !Mo Camera Straps for this month’s prizes and all the best – I trust it will be an enjoyable and fun experience for all!
