PeopleAndPortraits has well and truly launched! In conjunction with that, we wanted to bring you a fantastic shiny new contest to see you through October.

We recognize that across the world people are entering all sorts of seasons right now...which is why this isn't just about Autumn. You can utilise any season you want - and if you're extra creative, how about combining all four into one image?

Spring awakening. by Lukreszja

The idea of a Seasonal Portraiture Contest is for you to experiment and explore whatever season you happen to be in right now - through portraiture photography! The contest is open to all categories within the People and Portrait Photography Gallery:

:bulletblack:Artistic Nude
:bulletblack:Infants and Children
:bulletblack:Body Art


:bulletblack: Entries must be Photography with minimal manipulation
:bulletblack: One entry per person
:bulletblack: You must link to the contest in your comments to show you've read the rules!
:bulletblack: Entries must follow the theme of Seasons - interpret that how you wish but entries that do not appear to follow a theme will be removed from the contest.
:bulletblack: Keep an eye on PeopleAndPortraits for updates and news on the contest and results.
:bulletblack: Entries must have been created in 2012 - keep it fresh!
:bulletblack: Mature content must be clearly marked.
:bulletblack: It would be helpful if you can identify what seasons you are capturing - if it's not easily recognizable.


Start: 1st October 2012 12am PST
End: 30th November 2012 12am PST

I have a question...So I was looking through the entries and a lot of them were drawn with paint and even one that looks like a portrait but it was drawn in a photoshop program....But looking at the criteria, it's supposed to be only is it ok to enter other types of art like some people did, or not? Just wondering...
