The Theme – Reflection
Light always originates from somewhere but nowhere to terminate. Different surfaces in nature could reflect the same light into different results from soft, hard, focus and spread, etc. Surfaces in the heart and mind could sometimes reflect emotion and soul, even memory and reality. Surface could be defined by you, and what will be the reflection of your surface? The Spark is here; it brings the light and your reflection.
All prize-winning submissions will be awarded USD $20,000 in cash and USD $7,000 worth of gift packs. Prizes include products from Atomos, Rode, DZOFILM, Artlist and Nanlite
