“Being Disabled is no reason to stop Living.”

Mechanics of the Contest:
• Photographs must be taken in digital format using DSLR or smartphone camera. We’re looking for a minimum of 5 images, or a maximum of 10 images that will create a photo essay.

• Infrared photos taken with filter or taken by infrared camera not allowed. Only minor adjustments acceptable in the color, sharpness, contrast or digital equivalents are allowed.
