“Inquest Insight 6”
As we bid farewell to the year 2021 instead of looking back at all the hardships, sufferings and losses, we want to look forward. We want to celebrate how we rose above the storm of a pandemic year and that is why the theme for this year’s "Inquest Insight: 6" is, "Resilience".
This is the "Call for Photos" to all photo artists out there. We are inquesting for hidden talents worldwide and we're inviting you to participate.
The theme for this year’s Inquest Insight: 6 is "Resilience". Resilience is the ability to withstand adversity and bounce back from difficult life events. It's fascinating how the meaning of a word can vary from person to person. To someone, it represents the strength to bounce back. To someone else, the freedom to spread their own wings. To another, the determination to move forward. For some, the grit to pick themselves up and dust themselves off. And to others, self-reliance in the face of adversity. The photos must depict the photographer’s interpretation of the theme.
Photos can be submitted in three different categories:
• Photo Story
Photographs of all genres (Like Lifestyle, conceptual, street, landscape etc.) are eligible.
Out of the selected photographs, three will be awarded prizes, worth $500+.
