Contest Rules

MUSICAL INSTRUMENT Minimalism ContestEnter a minimalistic image (photograph, painting, drawing, or design) of 'MUSICAL INSTRUMENT(S)' that expresses an “essence” or tells a story.

Please follow the Guidelines for minimalistic images in our group:
- is without distracting elements
- not just a macro or close-up
- with an appropriate title
- judicious cropping often makes a difference

Entered images not meeting Contest Rules/Group Guidelines will be removed, for reasons such as not being minimalistic, being off-theme, or having words superimposed on the image.

No solicitation of votes, please.

Tie will be broken by decision of the organizer.

Same artist can win 1st Place Prize only once every three Contests.

Many thanks to Best of Minimalism group members Richard Neuman for theme suggestion and Nikolyn 'Nikki' McDonald for providing the Contest icon, 'Acoustic Conversation - Guitar', https://nikolynmcdonaldphotography.pixels.com/featured/acoustic-conversation-guitar-nikolyn-mcdonald.html .
