The second digital image competition of the year will be Around the House/Open.

Judge: Emily Belz

See gallery of winning images.

As the colder weather settles in this theme will let you take photos while you stay warm and dry. Look around your house, indoor or out, with new eyes to see the things that maybe you’ve been taking for granted. Look at light and shadow, find patterns. Feel free to experiment. People and pets may be included as part of a scene, but should not be the main subject of the image.

See our Competitions page for general information and submission specifications.
