So we are looking for clean, uncluttered images composed with few elements in the frame or with harmonious colours. Space around the subject is one way to achieve the minimal look and good balance in the frame is important. Simple lines are effective, while high-key and low-key images will work well for this theme.

Image requirements: no larger than 1920px on the longest edge at 72ppi (pixels/inch) and less than 6MB in file size.

Online submission of digital photographs via the website.
