Macro Contest : Beauty in everyday Objects
This contest is about the tiny things you find around your house and surroundings everyday, things you would normally submit to the Macro Photography Gallery under "Objects" . Walk around your house and be creative , find the unusual things and take a nice photo of them . Try to pay attention to focus, detail, originality and composition. Examples of such little beauties can be found almost in every room of your house e.g. jewelry , pencils, spices , figurines , etc. While water and flowers can be in your house as well, I encourage you to think outside the box and try to capture something different and more original. Earth Day's "TRASH TO TREASURE" Contest!
Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22nd, which has been done since 1970. The focus is to educate people to practice conservation and to use-up, reuse, and recycle what would normally become trash and put into a landfill, and to continue do so all year long.
This contest will focus on PHYSICAL uses of taking "trash" and recycling it into "treasure". It could be a sculpture, jewelry, quilts and rugs, baskets, pillows, furniture or anything made from old clothes, rags, reclaimed wood, fallen trees, old flowers, aluminum cans, broken jewelry, old bottles/cartons and the like, OR whatever you can think of when recycling your trash back into usable items.
