While 2020 has been a challenging year for many reasons, we’ve seen that photography has provided a creative escape for many on Flickr. You’ve been using your cameras and photography to bring light to all that is happening in the world.
Photographing beautiful landscapes, creating personal portraits, documenting community protests or people observing social distancing—every photo shines a light on our world and shares it with others. Especially in times of uncertainty, photography is a useful medium for sharing our reality, however that may look right now.
Our newest competition theme, “Shine a Light,” is intended to get you to share those realities. Whether it’s a positive, hopeful moment that you’ve captured, or a clear look into the changing world around us, “Shine a Light” is a call to share a look into your world.
Starting June 25th, 2020, we encourage you to join us in a photo contest and show us your best interpretation of the theme “Shine a Light” for a chance to win one of three FUJIFILM cameras:
- 2 FUJIFILM X100V Silver
- 1 FUJIFILM X-T30 Kit w/ XF18-55mm Charcoal Silver Lens
To enter, join the Shine a Light Flickr Group and add one safe photo taken this year to the group’s photo pool. All entries are due by 11:59 p.m. PT on July 23rd, 2020.
Submissions will be reviewed for creativity and originality by Flickr staff, and winners will be notified on or around August 6th, 2020.
We also encourage you to create and share galleries with your favorite entries in this Group Discussion. You can count on these photos getting awesome exposure: our favorites from each gallery will be featured on the Flickr blog and our social media channels through the following months.
