The theme for the ATOM Photo Comp 2017 is ‘My Backyard’.

Photography allows us to create our own unique interpretations of the world around us. The same place can have a different ‘feel’ in different situations. As a medium, photography offers many ways to explore a variety of perspectives on a location.

Be creative with your photography, and feel free to think outside the box when addressing the theme. Your photographs can be colour or black-and-white, realistic or abstract; they may include people or animals (or both, or neither!). This is an opportunity to express yourself through your photography; each photograph is a reflection of you.

(The 2016 theme was ‘A Sense of Place’.)
