A landscape implies an expanse of scenery. Landscape includes cityscapes, seascapes, riverscapes and sunsets. An image comprising solely of a single tree or building does not constitute a landscape. A landscape may include objects such as boats, people or animals provided they do not dominate the image.

On the face of it

Your subject could show how an object or situation seems on first consideration, however that opinion could change upon further understanding or investigation.  Or, your image could depict a face or faces, human or otherwise!

Photography as Art

The purpose of this award is to encourage photographers to lift their thinking beyond traditional photographic criteria such as sharpness towards the qualities that characterise Great Art. This is easy to say but hard to define. Ideally the image should capture something eternal, beautiful, noteworthy, striking or unusual. It would be a rare image that achieved all of these!

People looking for examples should look to the all-time great art works for inspiration. Clearly these paintings will include but not be restricted to: portraits (such as Rembrandt, Leonardo), landscapes (such as Constable, van Gogh), abstracts (such as Rothko, Kandinsky), human form (such as Ruben, Rodin), and expressionism (such as Munch, Monet).

Any amount or method of photo manipulation is acceptable, however the original image must have been taken by a camera or some other photographic process (e.g. a scanner).

The aim should be to produce an image that one would not be surprised to find hanging in the Perth Art Gallery.
