Optical Illusions

Play tricks with our eyes through a cleverly crafted optical illusion.

This challenge is all about manipulating perspective. For instance, photographing from afar can make objects seem smaller. Use it to your advantage to hold the Leaning Tower of Pisa in the palm of your hand or shrink your muse to a size of an ant. Think of how the position of your subjects will change when seen in a two-dimensional print, like in this clever shot by Elliot Erwitt. Create the perfect optical illusion out of everyday circumstances and be the champ of this competition!

Each participant may submit up to 10 photographs. This competition serves as the qualifying round for the Now or Never category.
