Five Elements Photo Contest

Five Elements Photo ContestPhotograph the beauty of nature, five elements provide the foundation for our entire physical world. Earth, and everything on it, is the product of different combinations of the five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Everything found in our world is unique because it contains a varying ratio of these five elements. Whether walking headfirst into a gale of wind or digging our hands into the soil, we possess an inherent familiarity with the elements. All organic and inorganic substances are combinations of them, be it a time-polished rock or a shiny piece of plastic. A multitude of spiritual practices revolve around these five important pieces of the universe.
We are looking for photographic depictions of the natural world. Landscapes, macro and micro shots, abstractions and realistic images that capture the beauty, uniqueness and magic which makes up our planet.

We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs.

Once submission for an exhibit close, all entries are submitted to the Juror for that exhibit anonymously. The juror will not know the name of the photographer or if two photos were taken by the same photographer. Jurors are charged with selecting about 45 entries for display in the Darkroom Gallery, in Essex Jct. Vermont. Jurors have sole discretion as to their selections. Please do not attempt to contact jurors to influence their choices. Doing so will disqualify your entry. Our goal is to announce the selected entries for each exhibit within seven days of the submission close date. This will be by email and on the Darkroom Gallery web site.
