Creating the illusion of a three-dimensional world with two-dimensional photos is no small challenge. You can use vanishing lines, high- or low-angle shots, scale variations as well as any natural or artificial means based on line geometry to give your images a sense of depth, dimension, and graphic impact.
Water should be the subject or one of the main subjects of the image. Flowing, stagnant, unfurling water! The photographs can be taken in a natural environment that is either rural or urban. They could represent obvious spaces, such as the seaside, a river, a lake or a pond, or more unexpected scenes, such as a simple pool or even an aquarium. Water should be shown in its liquid form (no snow, no steam, no ice).
The image illustrates a ritual, a party, a celebration, a sports, cultural or social event and is dominated by jubilation or joy. It captures the excitement of a moment, the joyful dynamics of a group, the positive energy created and carried by a group. The image highlights an atmosphere, gaiety and cohesion shared by a community of individuals at a given moment. The presence of these individuals may be explicit or simply suggested. Images representing political events are not accepted.
