you can use any phone with any camera or editing app that you'd like.
you can even use the photo editing software on your computer,
as long as you take the image with the camera on your phone.

anyone can enter!
students, professionals, artists, doctors, bankers, literally, anyone!
as usual, to help keep the judging fair,
we have two categories for submissions:
the "student/amateur" category
and the "professional/experienced" category.
the exhibition with combine both,
but the juror will judge each category separately.

i can't tell you how exciting this is!
we are lucky enough to have a fantastic special guest juror lined up for this challenge...

their very own feature on the bulbArts blog.
winners can show whatever photographic work they'd like to share.
the first place winner of the amateur category
