Doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels are so much a part of our lives. There are so many ways to think about them. We can look at them, or through them. We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.
For this call your images can focus on the “portal” itself like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.
Once again, we invite you to be creative and have fun in the process.
As with all calls, all 2D photographic art is accepted.

Showcasing the world’s best landscape photography, we find the best 101 images each year and publish them in a hard cover book made by Momento Pro.
We know the past 12 months has been ‘challenging’ for many landscape photographers. Quite a few of us haven’t been travelling much at all, but on the other hand, others have been rediscovering landscapes closer to home. And if we have been locked down for a while due to COVID, we’ve certainly had an opportunity to edit and refine our best images – having a passion has made some aspects of the restrictions that much easier.

The world of photography virtually exploded with the use of digital cameras and cell phones. Millions and millions of images were captured that would never have been taken before. But that was only a part of the revolution. A whole new world of artistic possibility opened up with computer software and phone apps enabling the creation of brand-new photographic imagery. PHOTOSHOP, NIK, TOPAZ, SNAPSEED, DISTRESSEDFX are just a few of the tools photographers can use to express their artistic vision.
This call is about images where the original shot was only the beginning.
