I thought that the brief in a photo competition was paramount, and interpreting that brief in an original way is the difficult bit.
However there seems to me to be a lot of pictures that simply stray too far or simply do not meet the brief IMHO. Do the judges think people are being cleverly ironic by entering portraits that show no connection, or joy that has a portrait of a less than joyful child? Maybe I miss the point but photography is about communication, if the story being told has to be explained then the picture has failed!
Perhaps to get on in these judges minds I should have uploaded to "Britain inspired" section a picture of some old socks with a US flag motive on and holes, in an ironic "arty" statement about UK.
