HORROR PHOTOGRAPHY

HORROR PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:​​​​

The horror photography contest leans on the photographic and interpretive elements that support the expansion of the genre. Horror photography as it is represented is diverse, and can lean on several forms of storytelling through the use of photography as it works to express its message. The purpose of this category is to provide a platform where all horror photographers can gain exposure for the message they work to share with the international horror community. Exemplary photography is awarded to expand that effort. Below are the submission requirements for the horror film contest:

  • You may submit a single-shot or a photo series (3-6 photos). All projects will enter to the same category, but will be judged separately. Below are the focus areas you may lean on to share your craft:

        ​-Horror Interpretation 

        -Horror Makeup

        -Horror Cosplay

  • To differentiate between a single photo and a series, a series submission must have either a master photo or a portfolio cover. This may be the first photo in your series, or a cover, and must be titled. All titles must be transcribed in English. We will use the first photo/cover in your submission as the first to be shown for the series.

  • Your photo/photo series must be original, and should not be found on the public domain by another photographer. Judges will check, so be sure you are presenting your own creepy creations.

  • Each project submission must be complete, and include a press kit. This includes your biography, creator statement, profile picture. Note that you must provide credits on the credits page of your submission. This includes the standard credits given to all members of the team if you have collaborated talents to develop the project.
