What is a Photo Essay?

A photo essay is a series of images that share an overarching theme and a visual and technical coherence that tells a story. This is commonly seen in photo contests. Thus, a photo essay tells a story through a series of photos, taking the viewer on a narrative journey.

How to Prepare and Participate?

Tell a diverse and confident concept/story on the theme through a series of photographs that represent what you are shooting and why. It’s important to find out what your message is and shoot it intentionally.

  • You can collect images from the internet by citing the sources. With a huge collection of images to choose from, shooting them all gives you a lot of options when putting together a photo series.
  • Collect/capture as many photos as you can.
  • Choose your top 20 images and make sure each photo matches the original concept of your story.

Write captions. The final 20 images can be captioned to reinforce the visual narrative, but it’s not required. Add text if you think you can use it on your image. However, if you think the image can stand on its own, you can present it as is.

Don’t forget to mention references for the images downloaded from internet sources.

Arrange the photos along with the captions in the google slideshare (open access) one after another in the given template:
