My Favorite Portrait In this broad category, feel free to send your takes of portraiture, from the traditional to the avant garde. Supply your own original ideas of what makes an interesting, vivid and creative portrait.
Enviromental/Work Portrait Βy placing the person in a working environment, business, workshop, agricultural or other, the creator correlates identity with its surroundings and all other interacting factors.
Ethnic Portrait In this category the author creates a strong context with ethnicity, culture and identity, in most cases making use of costumes, garments, jewelry etc. or local folklore.
Group Portrait Group portraits can pertain to any other category but what distinguishes and classifies them as a special genre is that they imply a strong link and bondage among the depicted people, family, friends, coworkers, athletic teams etc.
Self Portrait May be as old as photography itself, this portrait style lets the creator be an artist and a posing person at the same time trying to explore the boundaries of this duality.
Don’t miss the opportunity to claim a distinction and be judged by prominent names in the international photographic community.
