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 are featured right here on It’s Nice That. A huge thanks to everyone who took part in our first Monthly Brief. Watch out this time next month for new creative challenge to get involved in.
For this month’s Monthly Brief, photographer Juno Calypso set you the challenge to “take a surreal self portrait”. Below, Juno picks out the shots that stood out most to her.
“There were over 350 uniquely strange entries. In the end I went for the ones that made me look twice; the ones that made me confused, mesmerised, or just creeped me out,” the photographer says.
You can find all of the entries for this month right here.
