For the next month, we want to see your best two photos that really tell a story when put together. Show us how your best friend turned into a pumpkin, how you got from Paris to Guam, or how to bake a pie. We are looking to you, to become the modern day Shakespeare of photography!

The 3 winners will be published in the next issue of Contrast Magazine with the Grand Prize winner taking home a Diana Mini camera as well!

Winning images will need to be in high-resolution for the issue, so please have a hi-res scan available.

    Sohvi Viik – What Is Real Is Imagined

    Ever since photography has been invented in the early 19th century, people had themselves being photographed. However, in times of smartphone cameras, selfies and social media, recording our daily life in pictures has become a Leitmotiv, a metaphor for a restless society. In her latest solo exhibition, Estonian fine art photographer Sohvi Viik questions the necessity of modern photography.

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
