Print Giveaway: Girl with empty bowl

Published by MJR on May 5th, 2008 in News | 4 Comments »
This is hopefully the start of something pretty neat. This May, there’s a Print Giveaway and a bit of a contest to go along with it.
It’s simple. We name the theme, you make the pictures and post the links here on this thread. We’ll go through them and select one winner each month. The winner gets a signed print.
Whether you’re sitting pretty in Toronto or firing away your rolls in Singapore, we’ll get it to you.
To kickstart it all, I’ve dug through my closet and found this 12×18 Matte that’s a personal favorite showing an aspect of the very theme we’re going with for May…
The theme of this month is intimacy.
We want to see people-based photography. Images that shows empathy. Often times, it’s the most difficult thing to achieve an honest emotional intimacy with your subject, so it doesn’t have to be a complete stranger. It can be a brother, a sister, a friend or a co-worker. Get close, get personal, and show us your best. But remember, give dignity to your subject.
E-mail your submissions to Natalie at
Good luck.

    great contest idea. i already have a photo in mind but first i need to know…must it be a new picture, or can we use one we’ve already taken?

    marta: we’d much prefer new. we want people to go out and make something they care about, although if you find yourself in a bind near the deadline, send whatever you’re passionate about.
