Competition Guide for Story/Sequence

Competition #5 dpi: A day in the life ...

Typewriter Keys

This year we are asking you to submit a story or sequence on the theme of 'A day in the life' - using between three and five images.

Your images will be viewed as a whole on a single frame - so that the whole story can be seen together - then all images will be viewed separately.

The judge will be asked to choose the best 'told' story

Present up to FIVE photos to convey your story:  (the ideas below convey a sort of photo journalistic approach which may your selection of images)

·  The Establishing Shot. ... Setting wider context

·  A Medium shot to focus on the subject or characters

·  A medium or Close Up. … what is going on

·  An EXTREME Close Up. ... Specific detail

·  The Pay-off. … a sort of punchline or summary shot - or in this case, the final shot of the day

The example below shows a story represented as a single Powerpoint slide
