Abstractions 2014 in the visual arts is about expressing general ideas or qualities of an actual person, object or action. It is about expressing ideas and emotions by using elements such as colors and lines without attempting to recreate the original image. The basis for abstractions is to, in varying degrees, alter the reality of the subject or pure digital art.
This competition invites photographers and digital artists to use their own interpretations of these ideas, using any type of subject matter and using any style of photography or digital art.
