Winner of our previous monthly photo contest, Joanna Rogala from Poland, decided that theme for our next monthly photo contest will be “The Symbol”.

This theme is very wide and gives you an opportunity to show us your imagination to the maximum. This is a perfect chance to explore conceptual child photography in more depth. We communicate through the use of symbols all the time. Lines that form letters, words, or musical notes are symbols. A photograph is a symbol. Symbolism can be a powerful aid in photography. Photography is a sign language. Learn to recognize and use the signs to your advantage. Symbols are not absolute terms. In this contest, we would like to see:

Color Associations

For example blue represents: sky, sea, heaven, spirituality,

Green represents: nature, earth, vegetation,

Red represents: emotions, fire, anger, heat etc

Common Symbols

The dark – Time before existence, chaos, and the shadow world

Duality – Opposites, complements, and pairing

An eye – Intelligence, creativeness.

Light – Creative force, the direction East, and spiritual thought.

General Symbols

Cosmic symbols : Zodiac, ying yang

Commercial symbols: International road signs, and logos such as Apple, Nike etc.

Religious symbols, such as the Buddha, the Cross, and the Star of David

Patriotic and political symbols: Flags, the eagle etc

Submitted photographs can be both: black and white or color. Please submit only one photo for this contest.
