Theme:: "Uncanny Scenes and Dreams"
Deadline:: March 21st, 2013
Juror:: Andy Bloxham

Submit your best photographs which represent the idea of the "Uncanny".

Life is absurd, not matter how tightly we try to regulate it with rules, laws, social expectations and other conformist behavior. And, such regulation for normalcy can lose its hard protective layer and reveal the utterly bizarre and mysterious through the most unexpected ways. The Uncanny is commonly expressed in fictional literature, common mythologies, religion, news of the weird, and Hollywood cinema as a way to shake and to jolt the understanding of self and society. Dreams serve as a common platform for experiencing the surreal, but one can witness a moment, event, or scene that is equally stranger than fiction in nature, at home, or in the streets. The Uncanny can be found in a scene or constructed from a dream.
