Closes on : 30th of April, 2017

Competition Open!

When we think of repetition, it normally evokes associations of tedious, uninteresting, and monotonous activities. However, when it comes to photography, using repetition can enable us to capture a powerful image that has real impact.

Visual patterns can create rhythm, harmony and cohesion, which can provide a sense of comfort for the viewer. By repeating elements over and over many times, it creates patterns which can strengthen the image. Zooming in on a pattern so that it fills the frame, for example, can really enhance the sense of repetition and can give the impression that the pattern is far bigger than it actually is.

However, if an image shows pure repetition, it stands the chance of overwhelming the viewer as there is no real focal point in the image. A great way of counteracting this is to break the repetition by including a contrasting object, a different colour, a distinctive texture or a specific shape. This deliberate use of opposition will draw the attention of the viewer and gives dramatic impact to the shot.

We are looking for your attempts at creating strong images using repetition. Be as creative as you can with your composition to create the biggest impact. Good luck!


The Polaroid Cube - Blue

Huge, out-of-the-box fun. In little more than 1 cubic inch. - Standing at just 35mm, the Polaroid CUBE is here to prove that the best things do indeed come in small packages. This tiny action camera supports Micro SD cards up to 32 GB, and is ready to capture your most exciting moments in full HD video or highresolution images. So if you're living a life that's fit for film, make the CUBE your constant companion. It is weatherproof and shockproof, and more than capable of handling anything you throw at it. But not only does it look after itself, it looks after you: With a 124° wide-angle lens, it sees the big picture and bears witness to your most outrageous shtick.

Packs a mounting magnet; sticks to any metal surface. - The fun rarely sits around waiting… That's why the Polaroid CUBE features a neatly integrated magnet in the bottom of its housing. Simply pop the camera onto your helmet, skateboard, bicycle handlebar, golf club, or any other metal surface, and it'll stick with you through thick and thin. There's no need to fiddle with bands, straps or other makeshift apparatuses. What's more, the camera's shockproof design helps to capture stable video even when you give it a run for its money, and its weatherproof sealing makes it perfect for wake boarding, water skiing or just chillin' by the pool.

With 8 custom accessories, there's never a dull moment. - From protective to proactive, the Polaroid CUBE accessories lineup punches up the fun to even greater heights. The Bumper Case makes for fashionable wearing around the neck or clipped on a belt loop, backpack, keychain, etc.; the Helmet Mount attaches to virtually any helmet with 3M stickers; the novel Monkey Mount makes creative use of the camera's magnet; the Waterproof Case is also shockproof and connects to all CUBE mounts; the Suction Cup Mount can be used with the universal camera clip to mount to any flat, smooth surface; the Bike Mount secures the camera to bike handlebars with a clip-on attachment; the Tripod Mount features a universal metal insert to fit all standard tripods; and the 1 inch Strap Mount fastens the camera onto virtually anything.
