The Theme – Reflection
Light always originates from somewhere but has nowhere to terminate. Different natural surfaces could reflect the same light in different results from soft, hard, focus, spread, etc. Surfaces in the heart and mind could sometimes reflect emotion and soul, even memory and reality. You could define the surface, and what will be the reflection of your surface? The Spark is here; it brings the light and your reflection.
All prize-winning submissions will be awarded $20,000 in cash and $7,000 in gift packs. Prizes include products from Atomos, Rode, DZOFILM, Artlist, and Nanlite.
