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.

Picture This: Fine Art Photography

Fine Art photography can include landscapes, cityscapes, macros, wide-angles, long exposures, abstracts, portraits, nudes, semi-nudes, black-and-whites, color photos, surreal photos, hyper real photos, nature photos and on and on and on. What we’re looking for are simply beautiful or striking images that show your vision as a photographer. Give us personal images you think are good enough to be hung on the wall of a gallery or museum.

Deadline: March 1, 2015

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