.Indig says, "Circles. Triangles. Rectangles. Squares. Trapezoids. These are the basic geometric two-dimensional shapes. I’m interested in seeing how your images creatively feature these shapes in architecture, abstracts, still life, nature, landscapes, people or macro photography. These primary shapes can be highlighted or subtle but must be a key element of the composition.”
10% of artist entry fees goes to the curator's choice of charity. Mark Indig has chosen the Nature Conservancy.

Another 10% will go to the first place winner's choice of charity.
