    Your Assignment:

    Explore the hidden details in the natural world all around us. Close-up / Macro photography reveals the universe at our feet, and your assignment is to capture these fascinating details. You’ll be surprised what you can discover in your own backyard, but feel free to explore any location for tiny details!

    Judging

    First Round: Initial judging will take place during upload. If your image is chosen as a first round qualifier it will appear in the gallery. All others will be deleted. Typically entries are judged within 24hrs of upload.

    Second Round: Finalist judging will take place immediately upon closing of the assignment. Finalists will be notified for hi resolution images for further judging.

    Final Round: A winner will be chosen from the finalists and contacted.

    Prizes: The winning image will be published in the Fall/Winter (Oct 2016) issue of OPC and the winner will receive a signed copy of Don Komarechka’s book Sky Crystals
