For this competition, we're looking for images that were created either using in-camera or post-processing techniques that produce creative "special effects." In-camera techniques include, but are not limited to, intentional motion blur, panning, zooming, multiple exposures, or use of shaped filters. For this competition, you can also create special or painterly effects using post-processing techniques such as texture blending, compositing, or application of stylized filters. Any combination of the above is fine as well.

Photographs may be realistic or abstract and will be judged on composition, orginality, and overall visual impact. 

See our Competitions page for general information and submission specifications.

Please submit via Dropbox using the button above:

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

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