For the 2018 edition the photo competition focuses on the theme “BLOOMING” in all its potential facets (conceptual, naturalistic, human-related, …). It could be for example the blooming of an idea, the flowering of a life, the growth of a smile on a characteristic face, and of course of the blooming of Mother Nature (flowers, trees, …). Observe the countless definitions of “blooming” in everyday life and use your creativity to leverage this subject with your own taste.
This theme applies to all four categories. For example, in the category “Single Images (Macro)” a close-up image of a flower is perfectly valid, as it is a more conceptual idea like a germinating seed, the frost forming on a leaf in a cold morning or the rust which spreads over an iron bar.
In any case, your descriptions in the below form should help us understand how your images or stories relate to the theme.
