Self Portrait Challenge: Film Noir
Submissions accepted from September 1 - October 31, 2017.
expand post for details

For this challenge, we'd like you to create a "film noir self portrait." What does that mean? Merriam Webster defines film noir as "a type of crime film featuring cynical malevolent characters in a sleazy setting and an ominous atmosphere that is conveyed by shadowy photography and foreboding background music." Your challenge is to mimic this film genre with a self portrait. (Links below* may help you get ideas and understand the theme better, please check them out as you start brainstorming.)

Submit your entry via
Google+: Post to the “Challenge Submissions” Category http://goo.gl/VbVTm4
Facebook: Post to the Challenge Event: https://goo.gl/aGRLjs

Questions? Feel free to ask in comments, make a post in the discussion section of our G+ Community, or send a message to us at our Facebook page.

OFFICIAL RULES:

Submissions accepted from September 1 - October 31, 2017.
Entry must be a self portrait that is your original work and adheres to the theme. Only one entry per person.
The self portrait must be current (captured during the submission timeframe of the challenge), though composite elements of the image do not have to be current.

At the end of the submission period, the Owners and Moderators of The Art of Self Portraiture Community will select a group of 5 finalists and announce and feature these artists and their images. From these, one overall winner will be selected. The winner will have their work featured on all of our social media channels and be highlighted in a post on our website.

Please note that moderator judging is subjective (art always is!). Each moderator will cast their vote based on adherence to the theme and rules, as well as their own subjective impressions of the art and aesthetics of entries (such as emotional quality, creativity, overall technical skill required, processing quality, etc). Moderator votes are final and not subject to debate.

Current ASP Moderators:
+Lotus Carroll
+Mark Rodriguez
+Annie Weibull
+Joanna Koziara
+Jason Mayers
+Kelly Richards
+Nynke B
+Paul Bagley
+Ricardo Williams
+Sam Breach
+Stacy Vitallo
