"Beauty: Camera Eye of the Beholder" is an international juried online photographic exhibition exploring the idea of beauty in all its various shapes and forms.

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, as the saying goes. Given the subjective nature of beauty, entrants are encouraged to push the boundaries of accepted notions of beauty and show their distinctive perception of beauty. Entries can illustrate traditional ideas of beauty or explore more abstract forms of beauty.

The call for entries is open to female photographers, professional and amateur, using any photographic process. Entries must illustrate or explore the photographer's idea of beauty in
one of eight categories.

All entries must be submitted as JPEGs via the online entry form.
