Dear Humanode artists!
As Humanode gets ready to launch into the stratosphere and beyond, the team would like to challenge the community with a creative photography contest to spread the name of Humanode far and wide!
The Humanode team knows that we have quite a few creative artists in the community, and suspect that there are a lot of hidden tigers and dragons that are waiting for the opportunity to pounce into action. We also suspect that there are many creative souls out there who have yet to find the chance to shine.
Some can code, some can draw, some can sing, and some are poetic, but not everyone has those talents (Personally speaking, I still feel sorry for my Music teacher from way back when… her ears will probably never recover after attempting to teach me). But what about photography? Even if you don’t own a camera, almost everyone has a mobile phone with a camera. Almost everyone can shoot a photo. Thus, the Humanode Photography Contest!
To make things challenging and to draw out your creativity, we have a special theme for this contest. We want you to spell HUMANODE with 8 photos, and combine the 8 photos into one picture (a collage) that spells Humanode.
We don’t care what you use, or how you express the letters, as long as the completed collage spells Humanode. Let your imagination run wild! You can paint the letters, take photos of the paintings and combine them, you could spell the letters on your father’s forehead using lipstick, you can run around town taking pictures of letters on billboards, or you can even use gymnasts to spell HUMANODE using their bodies, take a photo of each letter, and combine the photos to spell Humanode. Let your imagination run wild, and share your HUMANODE collage with the world to proclaim the arrival of the age of cryptobiometrics and the beauty of a world of uniqueness that comes together as one!
Below is a sample of what we are talking about. (One of our team members took a stroll looking for letters to spell humanode, but remember, you are not limited to this. Really, let your imagination run wild!)
To spell HUMANODE!
