Shine a Light - Photography contest by Flickr | 23 July 2020

While 2020 has been a challenging year for many reasons, we’ve seen that photography has provided a creative escape for many on Flickr. You’ve been using your cameras and photography to bring light to all that is happening in the world.

Photographing beautiful landscapes, creating personal portraits, documenting community protests or people observing social distancing—every photo shines a light on our world and shares it with others. Especially in times of uncertainty, photography is a useful medium for sharing our reality; however that may look right now.

Our newest competition theme, “Shine a Light,” is intended to get you to share those realities. Whether it’s a positive, hopeful moment that you’ve captured, or a clear look into the changing world around us, “Shine a Light” is a call to share a look into your world.
