Call For Entries: Duggal’s Annual 2016 Capture The Moment Photo Contest Is Now Open


“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

― Karl Lagerfeld

The glaring difference between a photograph one remembers long after viewing, and one might sadly forget too soon, depends in part on whether the photo tells an engaging story. As viewers, we crave these stories, visually told. In strong photos, a story is self-evident and the tale it tells might also evoke an emotional response captivating viewers even further, burning the image into memory, allowing your audience to unfold stories of their own, all in response to your art.

In Duggal’s Capture the Moment Contest, we invite you to submit, along with your photo for consideration, what you consider the story behind, or inside your art. Together, your image and story provide a unique record of one moment of inspiration. Your story may be abstract, concrete, internal or external – it’s up to you. Tell us your story. Capture the moment.
