PASSIONS An International Photography Competition

Official Call for Entries Now Open!

The Details
Drawing from the wildly different interests that captivate us, our passions provide a view into not only how differently each of us can experience the world, but how uniquely we can all craft or change it for the better.
Submit a photograph of an individual or group in the moment of succeeding in that which they are most passionate about. Consider the possibilities and achievements that result from a passion: innovations, performances, discoveries, creations, experiences — anything that brings about positive change due to the inspiration and dedication of a passionate heart and mind.
The photo should demonstrate the social impact of the passion and illustrate its relevance beyond the immediate subject of the photo.
Photographs must be in .jpg format. Participation fee is $10 .  Please click the button below to make your payment. After payment is processed the e-mail address in where the photograph must be sent will appear.
