A photo essay uses visual images and story telling techniques to tell a story or to illustrate feelings and concepts.
A photo essay is a collection of related images that tell the progression of events, or illustrate an emotion, concept or key competency. Depending on the 'story', photos can placed in a specific order (similar to a flow chart) or can be arranged as a collection designed to add impact to the story.
Your photo essay should:
Contain original photos taken by the student/s
Have a title
Contain between 4 and 7 photographs.
Tell a clear, compelling story, or illustrate an emotion, event, or key competency
Demonstrate good photography techniques and composition
Be combined into a collage and saved as one image file e.g. .jpg or .png (photo software or apps can be used to create the collage.)
Photos must be original - i.e. taken by the student
(judges may seek confirmation about the source of the photos).
A photo essay submitted as separate images will not be judged.
No more than 5 entries for each section
(i.e. Y 1-3; Y 4-6; Y 7-8)
will be accepted from each school
