In the UK, January and February are traditionally months that are depressingly dull, grey, cold, wet and miserable. This may have influenced our decision to make the first competition theme of the year, something that visually implies the complete opposite: Paradise!
As with all emotive subjects, Paradise will be interpreted in as many different ways, as you find people to give an explanation of their own understanding – in other words, there is no wrong answer to the question, ‘What or where is Paradise?’
One online dictionary explanation says that Paradise is ‘the term for a place of timeless harmony’. In Paradise there is only peace, prosperity, happiness and contentment and it is often described as a ‘higher place’, a land of plenty where the heroic and righteous dead spend eternity.
To bring the subject back down to earth, for this competition, we would like to see images that you have captured, which, for you, encapsulate the idea of Paradise. These may be images that conjure up feelings of bliss, of being in heaven, of a wonderland or your very own utopia. These feelings can be found in the simple, everyday occurrences such as walking barefoot on the beach, a hot cup of coffee by a log fire, time to sit and read a book, a quiet spot under a tree; or, the splendour of a breath-taking scene, surfing the barrel waves in Bali, witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime event or something else that has the power to take your breath away.
We invite you to enter your images of your interpretation of Paradise into our competition, and we look forward to having our own breath taken away by them.
