April 2020 - Our Neighborhood

April 2020 Instagram Contest
Theme: My Neighborhood: A Three-Photo Essay

We’re all living in a new story. Sharing those stories with others is the best way to break through isolation and reclaim a sense of community. This Instagram contest isn’t about a single image. We want to see three photos you’ve taken since March 15 that, as a sequence, give the viewer a peek into what your neighborhood looks and feels like. Any subject matter is welcome but the more personal you make it, the stronger the story will be and the more others will be able to connect to it.

The judge for this contest will be Ed Kashi, an acclaimed photojournalist who uses photography, filmmaking and social media to explore geopolitical and social issues that define our times. A member of VII Photo Agency since 2010, he is also a dedicated educator and mentor to photographers around the world and lectures frequently on visual storytelling, human rights and the world of media. Among Ed’s many books is one titled Three in which he displays images in triptychs to pull meaning out of sometimes disparate subject matter. Ed is a visiting workshop instructor and lecturer at DCP.

The winner received a signed copy of Ed Kashi’s book ThreeSecond place got a 45-minute portfolio review with DCP Executive Director Peter Poulides. Third place received a $25 DCP gift certificate.

This contest ran from 03/28/20 – 04/12/20.
