Duggal’s Capture the Moment Photography Contest

“Capture the Moment Photo Contest”

Started on February 1st, 2012

Photographs are another medium to tell a story. A picture is worth a thousand words so the saying goes, but what about when a picture is also worth a thousand interpretations? These can be the most compelling and interesting images. They are also very hard to capture; they’re usually not something you can plan.

This call for entry is to “Capture the Moment” and then tell us the story behind it. The story can range from how you came about capturing the image you did to your interpretation of the moment you captured. The images we seek are ones that really engage the viewer and makes them want to know what is going on in the image. (ex. What the thoughts may be in the subjects mind, how you captured such an odd image, why you thought to capture this moment, what does this moment mean to you)
