We are constantly on the move in our daily lives. Walking, driving, dancing, exercising. Photographing movement can reflect a myriad of stories that tell of new beginnings, pure enjoyment, restlessness, chaos, and the simplicity of just being. Whether you capture the idea of movement, the anticipation before the action, or the blur of the moment, DCP invites you to submit images that uniquely embody the art of motion.

This call for entry welcomes submissions from all levels of photographers. Selections will be featured in an exhibition in the DCP Gallery in January 2022.

This competition is not open to former or current DCP employees, instructors, board members, corporate sponsors and partner companies, or their immediate families.

December 27 – Call closes
Week of December 27 – Selections and winners announced
