Duggal’s Cinematic Photo Contest

Cinematic Photo Contest

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
- Stanley Kubrick

Cinema, motion pictures, movies…. the art of the moving image,
a visual medium that can tell stories, expose reality, or reveal fantasy.

A complex artistic expression, can the effect, mood or theme of cinematic expression be captured in stills? We think so.

Artists understand the camera’s potential to record actions and tell stories. We invite you to submit photos that do so in cinematic style. Show us what unique expressive elements of cinema can be translated through a still camera lens?

Noir, suspense, Hollywood glamour, drama, comedy – all genres are fair game.

Or, feel free to recreate your favorite scene or moment from your favorite film!
