CHEEKY - Your photographs should be surprising and not be too serious, though respectful.
STRAIGHTFORWARD - Embrace the minimal approach without being boring.

Pastel Colour + Incredible Symmetry are looking to feature photographs bursting with delectable, shareable symmetry, particularly when it comes to architecture, and utilising pops of colour with blue skies and a whitewashed filter - no over-saturation! The photos should evoke warmth and cheerfulness and make others want to travel.

Fun, joyful and lively travellers

Your photograph should only feature people if the pose captured is authentic and natural. We’re not looking for gazes into the camera, your subjects should be enjoying and taking in their environment, which is forever the focus. Their clothes should be sophisticated - and unbranded - think city seeker rather than beach babe. No selfies, please.
