Love Gone Wild
Assignment Open From
Feb 1 - Feb 14, 2016
On Valentine’s Day, even the most forgetful partner usually remembers to show some affection, be it through a warm embrace or a wild kiss.
For this wildlife photo assignment, try to remember to send us some social signals (like these chinstrap penguins). Or the colors of passion in nature, like red and pink.
Our editorial team will choose the best submissions based on appeal, composition, originality, and technical quality. A group of chosen shots for this assignment will be posted on this page and one will even be featured.
We can consider a maximum of four submissions per contributor. Give us your best shots.
