Every month, we bring you a new photo contest with a new theme and a fun prize. Be sure to check out the entries in our contest forums.

August Theme: Vertical

The theme is “vertical.” What does that mean? Well that’s entirely up to you. It can be vertical lines, vertical compositions, people/things being vertically elevated or any other creative play on this word. Have fun with this theme!
