A few words about the Monthly Theme Contests
So, now it is time for the Monthly Theme Contest for January 2017! The Monthly Theme Contests are a fun challenge for all! Every month we choose a Theme and we ask you to participate by each sending us one Street Photograph each time at firstname.lastname@example.org. That photos must be based on the Monthly Theme. So for example if the theme is Silhouettes, then we would like you to each send a photo with a Silhouette moment. Your photo can be taken any time in history, we don’t mind, as long as it has been taken by you and nobody else.
What Is This Month’s Theme?
This month we would like to ask you to participate with Street Photos of “Zebra crossings”. We would like you to send in clever compositions using Zebra crossings. We will not accept just people crossing the street, the photos have to have an edge to them. So, send in clever photos using Zebra crossings as the concept. We look forward to see what you will send in!
Please follow the example of the photo we are sharing with you here.
