Creativity and impact! These are strong elements for me.
Attention to details and care taken when creating art.
Wow factor has a tendency to trump all. Being intentional with your work and really applying an understanding of lighting, shadows, lights, colors etc to tell your story will bring impact is what I look for.
I’m looking for overall consistency within the body of work submitted. I’m also looking for a clear understanding of lighting and composition. Lastly i’m looking at posing technicalities.

I am looking for images that have a wonderful story, great composition and excellent technical skill. Each image will receive equal attention and consideration.
