Umencia Portrait Photo Contest

Fading Light – Juried Book Photo Contest

Fading-Light-Illustration4 Open to Interpretation is now calling on photographers to submit images for consideration in a juried book competition. Open to Interpretation is a collaborative book project bringing together photographers, poets and writers. Each book begins with a themed call for photos.

The chosen photos become the literary inspiration for the writers’ submissions. A book is created that matches each winning photo with two stories or poems that offer different interpretations of the image. The unique collaboration adds new dimensions to both the photos and the written word.
