COVID TIMES- a 20/20 Perspective 

A new category, is an opportunity to showcase work created during our long retreat from life as we were accustomed to living it prior to the onset of Covid.

In this category, multiple images CAN BE combined as a collage, mosaic or storyboard but must be presented as one image.

Images in this category could show “What I did while sheltering in place”, essential work being done, our changing cities, towns, villages, “how I felt” and/or how we connect when we are physically distant.

LANDSCAPE

Includes but is not limited to landscapes, seascapes, panoramas, time-lapse, outdoor scenes, sunsets, farms, light painting, night shots, aerial photography. These images depict an expanse of scenery.  The subject is the scenery and not individual elements of the scene.
