The art of visual storytelling encompasses a wide range of possibilities with at its heart, the will to tell a story. From classic social documentary to imaginative storytelling: this month we are seeking visual artists aiming to captivate and share their stories with conviction.

We want you to challenge us and respond to the theme in as many inventive ways as you can imagine: Edit carefully and show us what you've got!

Each month the competition winners and finalists are rewarded with $2000 cash prizes and direct online exposure. At the end of the year all images are published in the 'Talents of the Year' book and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners are printed and exhibited during our annual group shows in Berlin and Barcelona.
