Picture This: Wildlife and Nature

Take some time sorting through your wildlife and nature images to pick out something truly special for this gallery. Not only are we looking for the subjects to be in focus, we’d like to see wildlife and nature photos that offer a fresh and interesting perspective or tell some sort of a story. This should be a very competitive assignment, so give us wildlife and nature images that truly stand out.

Deadline: April 1, 2015

Selected images will appear in the July 2015 issue of Shutterbug.

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.

Picture This: Gorgeous Landscapes

This assignment is deceptively simple: show us your best landscape photos. Yes, many of our readers have posted some amazing landscapes in our image galleries on Shutterbug.com over the years but the challenge is to show us something that is both beautiful and original. Go!

Deadline: May 1, 2015

Selected images will appear in the August 2015 issue of Shutterbug.

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.

Picture This: Great Lighting

For this assignment, show us images that have great lighting. In terms of the light source, we’re not picky: it could be a completely naturally lit scene or something that was shot in the studio with 100% artificial light. Subject matter is also completely up to you. What we want to see are photos with beautiful light, which is really what photography is all about.

Deadline: June 1, 2015

Selected images will appear in the September 2015 issue of Shutterbug.

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.

Picture This: The Decisive Moment

Post images that exemplify what French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called "the decisive moment," i.e. real-life subject matter that's captured neither too early, nor too late, but at the peak of emotion and expression.

Deadline: December 15, 2014

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.

Picture This: Winter Wonder

Post images that think outside the box about winter photography. While photos of snowmen and sledding are nice, we’d like to see images from you that capture the true splendor of winter’s power and beauty, not just a seasonal cliché. Give us winter with a sense of wonder.

Deadline: January 1, 2015

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.

Picture This: Low-Light Noir

Post dark and moody images that recall classic "film noir" movies. We're looking for gritty, high contrast images, preferably in black and white, captured in low light conditions. Color photos are fine too but make them shadowy and mysterious: think Edward Hopper, not Walt Disney. Film grain effects or even digital noise are encouraged, just as long as it suits the subject.

Deadline: February 1, 2015

NOTE: Please include your real name in the description field to qualify for this assignment.
