Z-LIFE Candid Photo Contest
Candid photography is less about flawless lighting and fine-tuned camera settings and more about quick shooting, experimentation and lots of editing. It may not require the same technical skill as studio photography, but capturing that magic moment calls for patience and persistence. In the summer issue of Z-LIFE magazine, photographer Juliet Cannici offers tips for taking great candid pics. She has spent the past year capturing the Zumba experience at events and classes, and now it’s your turn to show what you’ve got. Take your best shot, and enter the Z-LIFE Candid Photo Contest!
THE THEME: Send up to 10 candid images on the subject of “Zumba joy” to email@example.com.
THE RULES: Each photo submitted must be attached to a separate email, accompanied by a description of the image. Write “Z-LIFE Candid Photography Contest” in the subject field of your email. Upon submission, you will receive an automated email response confirming our receipt of your image along with information about permissions and usage. Entrants must be prepared to show evidence of permission from a parent or guardian for any minors in each photo. Deadline for submissions is noon EST, August 31.
FORMAT: All images must be supplied in a jpg or tif format at high resolution. For details on high resolution images, read “Take Your Best Shot” in our summer issue. No email attachment should exceed 10 megabytes (MB) in size.
