Please Read Carefully!

Since this week’s theme is different than most, we want to make sure you read the guidelines before you enter.

Our definition of Photojournalism for the sake of this challenge:  Using an image (or images) to tell a story.

For this week’s challenge we’d like you to choose a photo that is photojournalistic in style.  Or (for this week only) you can enter a collage of photos instead.  Please make sure that a human face is showing up somewhere in your photo entry and that you use only a maximum of 5 photos in your collage.

**You can either enter ONE photo or ONE collage that has a maximum of 5 photos in it.  Please do not enter 5 individual photos or you will not be considered as a winner for this week’s challenge.

“Photojournalism” Photo Entries:

If you enter our photo challenge this week, be sure to leave comments for at least five entries around yours. Our participants love this! 🙂 Please also read the copyright and guideline info in our sidebar before entering.


What photos did you use to interpret this theme…tell us about your photo entry in the comments section below!

Hmm, well.. perhaps mine was a little bit more obvious than most people’s… there isn’t really anything to explain. Just laying on my bed with tissues strewn all over and “blowing” my nose. 🙂 I got the idea because my sister has been sick. 🙂

The last 6 months we have spent a lot of time to and from the doctors with my daughters. My eldest tested positive for coeliac disease. I had a little photo shoot with my daughter at a local wheat field the day before her starting school and also before going into hospital for a biopsy to confirm coeliac. So to me these photos have a connotation – one that she do not understand but it tells the story of a girls relationship with wheat. I hope you like the images and hopefully you can see the connotation and the story I was looking to achieve with it.

whew…I almost missed the deadline on this one! My story in my photo collage is about the intense focus and determination my three year old has. Not so good when it come to him trying to get his way!

My daughter and her best friend were my inspiration for this weeks challenge. And considering I have quite a few photos of the girls, choosing was the hardest.
