January 2018 Collage Challenge

The topic for this Mixed Media Photography contest is: JANUARY 2018 COLLAGE CHALLENGE. Please note since this contest contains a collage, that is the main reason why it is considered a Mixed Media entry.

(SIDE NOTE: This will be a monthly contest. By the end of this year, the entire American Alphabet will have been incorporated into these monthly contests. Your entry must be completed during the month that the challenge states. For example, the January Collage Challenge must be completed during the month of January.)

For January 2018 you will be utilizing the letters A or B. Your entry will contain a collage of at least 3 but no more than 8 photos. You will select either the letter A or B and take pictures of something that begins with either A or B. If you select A for example, you may either select one item or many items that begin with the letter A.
If you select one item, for example an afghan, you must take pictures of different afghans and place those photos into a collage and submit it. Do not take several photos of the same afghan. Take photos of different afghans. One afghan per photo. In your title indicate what the letter you chose and what it is...A is for AFHGAN and do not forget to annotate somewhere either in your description or artists notes when you completed your collage. If, however, you decide to choose many instead of just one, then you may take pictures of many items beginning with the letter A. Remember you must have at least 3 photos but no more than 8. As an example, for "many" items, you could perhaps have a photo of an airplane, some aluminum, an accordion, an alligator, an anchor and an armadillo. In your title indicate the letter A...Your title can be anything but must include the letter A. For example..."Items of A", "Beginning with A", "A is It", etc. In your artist's notes, please let us know the items you have in your collage. You can create your collage any way you want... placement of photos, colors, design, with or without frame, etc. It is all up to you and your creativeness. Once you complete your collage, please submit by the deadline. Most of all HAVE FUN! Get your photography juices flowing and let us see just how creative you can truly be. Your photos can be unedited, or they can be also a true Mixed Media photograph, which is a form of art that uses software to create art from photographs, or they could just be slightly edited.

The final work of art should be about the topic provided. Creative approaches are welcomed. But contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner. The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The Prize Pool is currently 24.00 member dollars. There are 14 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 80.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.
