Theme and Selection:

“Light of Day” can be interpreted literally or conceptually.  Perhaps the sun as it rises to a new day suddenly presents to you an inspiring fascination which you creatively pass forward through an exciting new work of your own.  Nature’s light and your artistic hopes become realized and are seen fresh and renewed.

Artists may have visual concepts yet to be born through their art or photography that are awaiting exposure to the world. Also, there can be that moment in time when light has been captured in a work of art so beautifully that we become one with the artist’s dream or ideal passion.

The artist’s and photographer’s exciting, potentially enlightening moment may bring forth to many cultures art work demonstrating subjective concepts, philosophies, or even political expressions and worldwide aspirations. We look forward to seeing these works which represent either a literal or metaphorical portrait of your “light of day.”

Eligibility: This competition is open to all artists/photographers who are 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.
