CATEGORIES

STEP NUMBER ONE - CHOoSE THE CATEGORY (OR CATEGORIES) YOU’D LIKE TO ENTER IN! YOU CAN ENTER MORE THAN ONE, AND ENTER MULTIPLE TIMES WITHIN EACH CATEGORY, SO LONG AS EVERY ENTRY IS A DIFFERENT LOOK.

MAKE SURE TO READ AND UNDERSTAND WHAT EACH CATEGORY IS FOCUSED ON, AND PICK THE ONE THAT IS THE CLOSEST MATCH TO YOUR TALENT AND PASSIONS!

 
 

INSPIRATION 

Picked the category you’re going to enter in, but Not sure where to start? 

Check out the guidelines we’ve built for each category on Pinterest. Then begin creatING your mood board - whether it’s physically with printed images and magazine clippings, or online through Pinterest!

 
 

PHOTOGRAPHY

WHETHER YOU CHOSE TO CAPTURE YOUR ENTRY WITH A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER, OR TAKE THE IMAGE ON YOUR OWN, THE QUALITY OF YOUR ENTRY PHOTO IS VERY important! Make sure you capture your vision by: 

Planning your shot: make sure your model and your work is the focal point of the image. If you are taking a photo on your phone, solid backgrounds with natural or ring lighting work best.

cropping correctly: remember you will be entering your work through instagram. we recommend shooting in portrait (9:16) or Square for the best visual appearance on the app.  

The more the better: Take several photos from various angles so you have options to choose from!
