STORRIED MONTHLY VISUAL STORYTELLING COMPETITION (#SMVSC) – JULY 2016


INTRODUCING THE STORRIED MONTHLY VISUAL STORYTELLING COMPETITION FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS (PROFESSIONALS, AMATEURS AND PHOTO ENTHUSIASTS)

INTRODUCTION
It is commonly said that a photograph is worth a thousand words.

If indeed one photograph is worth 1,000 words, then it would be appropriate to find that one photograph that would be worth so many words with our fans.

THEME
Can we get anyone to send photograph(s) – portraits, landscapes photos, street photos, observations photos (poor sign writing and other funny photos) or just about any photographs of interest that would attract the most comments from our teeming fans, friends and family members?

We are looking for that one photograph that would elicit a thousand words.

ELIGIBILITY
Photographers (Professionals, amateurs and photo enthusiasts) are invited to post their photographs, while giving the opportunity to our fans, friends and family members to like/comment/share such photographs.

SUBMISSION
Please submit your entry(ies) directly to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/storried) and invite your friends and family to like, comment and share your photograph(s).
Maximum number of photographs that can be submitted by any author each month is there (3).

PRIZE
The one photo with the most comments/likes and views, wins the sum of $100.00 (or its equivalent in local currency).
