Our April photo competition


Portraits make great photos, but the human body can produce some of the most intriguing, inspiring, and delicious pictures, too. Hands can tell a story, hips can be sensual, and even feet can be made to look elegant. So that’s what we’re looking for this month: pictures of the human body. (Absolutely no dead ones, ya hear?) If you manage to produce the winning picture of a smouldering neckline or a marvellous macro of an eye, the super dudes over at Fracture will be giving you one of your pictures printed on glass.

We’ll accept submissions (one per person) from today – Wednesday 6 April 2011 – until Wednesday 27 April. They need to be added to the Small Aperture Flickr pool.

Any questions? No? Well you know where to find me if you do have any. And here are The Rules, in case.

The Rules

  • If you decide to enter, you agree to The Rules.
  • You can’t have written for Small Aperture or be related to either me or Haje to enter.
  • One entry per person – so choose your best!
  • Entries need to be submitted to the right place, which is the Small Aperture Flickr group.
  • There’s a closing date for entries, so make sure you’ve submitted before then.
  • You have to own the copyright to your entry and be at liberty to submit it to a competition. Using other people’s photos is most uncool.
  • It probably goes without saying, but entries do need to be photographs. It’d be a bit of strange photo competition otherwise.
  • Don’t do anything icky – you know, be obscene or defame someone or sell your granny to get the photo.
  • We (that being me and Haje) get to choose the winner and we’ll do our best to do so within a week of the competition closing.
  • You get to keep all the rights to your images. We just want to be able to show off the winners (and maybe some honourable mentions) here on Small Aperture.
  • Entry is at your own risk. I can’t see us eating you or anything, but we can’t be responsible for anything that happens to you because you submit a photo to our competition.
  • We are allowed to change The Rules, or even suspend or end the competition, if we want or need to. Obviously we’ll try not to, but just so that you know.
