In an era of where ‘Selfie mainey le li aaj’ runs shudders down many a spine, The Uncommon Box successfully organised its creative self-portrait competition between 21st to 31st May, on its Instagram and Facebook group handles, proving once again that a selfie is can be a powerful depiction of oneself on social media.
Participants were asked to abide by the two keywords in the title of the competition
“Creative and Self-Portrait”
A self-portrait by standard definition is a photograph of a person, especially depicting only the face or head and shoulders.
The competition emphasized on this aspect repeatedly along with the creativity element. These were the two main criterion of evaluating the posts.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to each participant who posted their pictures right through the contest. It is a morale booster for us to see you post your best work for everyone to savour!
At this juncture, we would like to mention a specific point. It has undoubtedly been a learning experience for us in Team TUB as well, as we got to analyse a variety of creatively taken self-portraits. So we decided, like we had repeatedly mentioned in our posts, that while evaluating, we will stick with what comes across without doubt, as a self-clicked creatively composed self-portrait.
We have selected 5 winners and 10 special mention winners for our competition from our Instagram and Facebook group. Here is the list:
First Five Winners Of The Creative Self Portrait Category
Ten Special Mention Winners Of The Creative Self Portrait Category
These 10 may not have made it to the top five, but their work is surely worth a special mention.
Every competition we organise is planned with an aim to promote talent and to help us learn and grow. This competition has also been successful in this endeavour.
We would like to hear your feedback on this competition and your suggestions for future activities as well. Till then, keep TUB-ing!
We encourage all kind of creative work whether articles, poems, sketches, doodling, painting, food styling or about fashion or travelling or photography.
