The top 10 include everything from the expected, chocolate, to the odd and unexpected, bananas. Bananas? I don’t think so. This next Call is all about love and lust. Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES:
Open to Interpretation:
Love + Lust
Open to Interpretation is a juried book competition of photography, poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. Each book begins with a themed call for photos. The chosen photos become the literary inspiration for the writers’ submissions. A book is created that matches each winning photo with two stories or poems that offer different interpretations of the image. The unique collaboration adds new dimensions to both the photos and the written word.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all
THEME: Love + Lust. Lust is an intense appetite, craving, or untamed desire. We lust for an array of things—money, power, objects, sex, or just living life. Love is a powerful affection or personal attachment and comes in a variety of forms, which can encompass romantic, sexual, platonic, narcissistic, or even religious feelings or attitudes. And sometimes love and lust overlap. What images capture these emotions for you?
