Closes March 2024 for May 2024 – Nature

See WACC Website for definition

Closes May 2024 for July 2024 – Patterns

PATTERNS: Repeating something many times creates a pattern.

The idea is to create a visual unit with no single point of interest that the eye is drawn to.

Any visual element can be used to create a pattern; e.g. colour, shape or texture.

Look for a composition in your image that bests illustrates the pattern.

There is no restriction on natural or man-made elements.
