Open To Interpretation: A Juried Book Competition of Photography, Poetry and Prose
Call for Entries: Love/Lust
Deadline: Tuesday, February 12, 2013
“Lust is an intense appetite, craving, or untamed desire. We lust for an array of things—money, power, objects, sex, or just living life. Love is a powerful affection or personal attachment and comes in a variety of forms, which can encompass romantic, sexual, platonic, narcissistic, or even religious feelings or attitudes. Show us your interpretations. Who or what do you love or lust for? What images capture these emotions for you?
