We put a bird on this competition!

To celebrate the second season of the fantastic IFC show, Portlandia, we’ve teamed up with IFC to get everyone in a Portlandia Frame Of Mind.

We want to see your very best photos featuring birds – Flying, stealing your dinner, multiple exposed on photos of other birds, landing precariously on Portlandia logos… get your analogue eye on the sky!

Let’s talk about the prizes! 5 lucky winners will get their hands on some great Portlandia gear!

    There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
