Shutterbug Showcase: Going GreenContent Express

Shutterbug Showcase: Going GreenContent Express

Green is the color of many things, including grass, leaves, spring and life. It can represent renewal, calm and rebirth in many aspects. With that in mind, our next Shutterbug Photography Contest theme is “Going Green.”

Images can be from any year and anywhere, but they must contain at least one element of the color green. Enter any subject matter that captures what green means to you. Subjects could include but aren’t limited to self-portraits or portraits of your family or pets, the scenery outside your window or from the front porch, any sports event or the bounty of your garden.

You can enter photographs taken on a phone or with a camera. Judges will look at the quality of light as well as the composition and subject matter to choose the winners.

Images can include people or not, and they can be selfies. As you accept this challenge, please stay safe and mind your surroundings. We don’t want any injuries in pursuit of a photograph.
