Establishing an effective point of view is a fundamental component of creating a meaningful photograph. Too often we get in the habit of taking our photos 5 feet or so above the ground as we stand looking at a subject. For this competition we challenge you to get creative with point of view by taking photos with your camera at heights either below your normal knee height or above your normal head height. Crouch down, lay down, climb up – do something to get a different perspective. The subject of the photo can be wide-ranging, but should be clearly identifiable. 

See our Competitions page for general information and submission specifications.

Please submit photos via Dropbox (not yet open) 

  • You must be a member in good standing to enter. Please pay dues now if necessary.
