Submission Deadline:

November 11, 2022

Remote Meeting (See Instructions/Get Zoom Link Emailed)


Still life images are often carefully crafted scenes, often in a home or studio. We would like you to present the "found" still life. Maybe it is the way a bike or other object is staged against a building in a certain light. Whatever you capture, try and find the spontaneous, unexpected still life scene in the outdoor environment.


Photos can be of any subject and will be judged on creativity, effective use of lighting, and overall impact of the image. Consider images that tell a story or evoke a particular mood. 


See our Competitions page for general information and submission specifications.


Please submit via Dropbox using the button above:

  • Please log out of your DropBox account before submitting your images.
