Rites and Rituals: your brief and video tutorial for the April Clique Challenge

Theme: Rites and rituals
Deadline: Monday, April 24 at 12 noon AEST

Entries are now closed. The winner will be announced shortly at www.cliquephotos.com.au.

Your April Challenge theme is “Rites and rituals”.

A first birthday, school formal, wedding, or an early morning swim – your brief is to create an entry that documents a rite or ritual.

Rites and rituals can include coming of age moments such as losing a baby tooth, to religious holiday activities celebrated every year such as collecting eggs on Easter Sunday. April is busy with religious holidays and events, so remember to plan ahead.

You could also document everyday rituals that are more specific to an individual or group. This can include a morning run, a team huddle before a sports game, or reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee in the morning.

Fairfax photographer Janie Barrett joins us for the April video tutorial with advice on capturing rites and rituals.

The winner of the April Challenge wins a Clique prize pack valued at more than $1500, including:

  • Adobe: A 12-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan.
