The live photo challenge is returning to the Focus on the Story photo festival, bigger and better than ever. Literally. This year’s theme is “We have the biggest….”
We’re giving festival attendees 96 hours during the festival (May 29 – June 2) to shoot, edit and submit a spectacular image that best fits this year’s super-sized theme. We’re not limiting your imagination – enter street photography, portraits, landscape or fine art. It’s up to you how you interpret the assignment. Be creative, be funny, be bold — but don’t miss our 9 a.m. Sunday, June 2 deadline to submit.
A panel of award-winning photographers (André Chung, Carl Juste and Pablo Martínez Monsiváis of the Iris Photo Collective) will critique the finalists and choose the winners during a live judging session to close the festival. The grand prize this year is a Fujifilm XT30 with an 18-55mm f.2 zoom lens. The reviews on it have been outstanding (Fstoppers, The Verge, Kai).
Also in the prize pool are two very sweet Peak Design Everyday Backpacks 20L and a Peak Design Travel Backpack 45 L.
The contest is free to enter for all festival registrants. Details on how to submit, prizes and other terms and conditions to be announced in the next couple of weeks. Start planning now on how you’ll show that DC has “the biggest.”
