Photo contest "ORANGE"
The color orange has much more to offer than just a description of the citrus fruit of the same name: it radiates warmth, energy and creativity and can inspire us in many ways.
So: pick up your cameras and capture the magic of this color in a photo. Whether it's breathtaking rock constructions, brilliant lights, sunsets, fashion looks, friendly robins, delicious carrot dishes or just a small but striking splash of orange color - there are no limits to your creativity! The color offers countless motifs.
We are already excited for your submissions and look forward to discovering the diversity of the color orange.

Unfortunately this is not possible. The pictures will be anonymized so that the jury can neutrally evaluate which photos are the best. Regardless of who took them or what the story is. Since the pictures are anonymized, there is also no point in assigning special file names.
Each participant can upload up to three photos once. If only one or two pictures are uploaded, it will not be possible to upload them again. If you still want to submit more pictures (maximum three in total), please send them to us by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
