Contest Rules

Take A Pause Point blank, we need to take a pause! Why am I saying this, because we are all consumed by time. From the very beginning of this pandemic it has taught a valuable lesson in taking a moment to stop and smell the flowers of life. Pre pandemic we were all busy, running from here, running from there and loosing track of time by missing on the small things in life. For example missing those moments when someone gets married, moves away, spending time with family etc. Those important events we should never miss. Our schedules were too consumed with activities that took up time and space for taking time to enjoy leisure and work gets in the way. Until now, we have now taken a pause on life. Spending more time with family and working from home. Outdoor activities have turned into home zoom activities and we find ourselves spending more time with family. Have you taken a pause on life?

In this contest I would like to see art pieces displaying happy moments in life with events people may have missed such as marriage, a birth, graduation, partying, dancing, singing etc. These are precious moments one should never miss and art has a powerful way to remind people to take a pause on life. They are reminded of the events to never miss and to think twice about what's more important in life! The following images I would like to see are photography, typography, paining and sculpture.


1. Please do not post nude images, they will be removed
2. Have fun
3. Be encouraging

Exclusive interview with first place winner which will be featured in my blog along with the announcement of the other winners!
Stay safe everyone.

Kind Regards,

Yolanda Lee
