Introducing the It’s Nice That Monthly Brief! What is it? Each month we’re inviting creatives from across the world to invent creative briefs which everyone, no matter your talents, can get involved in. At the end of week the best of the bunch will be featured right here on It’s Nice That.
This month photographer Juno Calypso asks you to “take a surreal self portrait”.
“Take a surreal* self-portrait using your phone. Maybe it’s a portrait of your alter ego, maybe it’s that weird dream you had, or maybe you have no idea what you are doing but you’re doing it anyway. Your subconscious, your rules, have fun.”
*Surreal: Having the disorientating, hallucinatory quality of a dream; unreal; funny; bizarre.
How to enter:
Upload your portrait to Instagram.
Include @itsnicethat and #ItsBriefThat in the caption.
Entries are open from Monday 18th – Friday 22nd September.
Juno will pick her favourite shots to feature on It’s Nice That at the end of the week.
Tips and bits:
You can enter as many portraits as you like.
We’d prefer if you created something original.
Use the self-timer on your phone to nail that shot.
Keep an eye on #ItsBriefThat to see all the other great people getting involved.
