Theme

Lifestyle in the New Normal

We have been hearing of how COVID-19 has affected all aspects of our lives. It has changed routines, social norms and priorities.

 

This contest aims to effectively inspire people to observe how the lifestyle of people in their community has changed and identify their needs through connecting with them in times of pandemic. This is your chance to get your camera out and start capturing the moments that show how life has changed in this new normal.

 

Capture a picture that shows the lifestyle of people in the new normal - the culture and lifestyle of your local community or church community. Submit the photo and write a caption (30-50 words) that expresses the lifestyle in the new normal. The effect may be inspiring or troubling, joyful or somber, or anything in between. Just make it real!

 

We look forward to seeing the beautiful pictures from all of you.
