Photo Essay Competition/What Do You Call Home?

We invite you to create a photo essay that explores the theme of "Home" through a series of five original photographs accompanied with a written statement.

"What Do You Call Home?"
"Home" can be defined in many ways including a physical space such as your state, your village, or the residence in which you live. "Home" can also mean, the emotional attachment you feel towards a community, a neighborhood, or a family. How do you define "Home?" What does the idea of "Home" mean to you? How does the idea of "Home" define your identity?

We are looking for you to explore your ideas and feelings about "Home" in a series of five photographs. Your photo essay could be documentary, or portrait of something completely original and unique. Your artist statement should discuss your ideas about "Home" through your photographs and must be included with your submission.
