Challengers are invited to take the reflective mood exercise as literally or metaphorically as you wish…

We don’t mind if you submit a portrait of someone in a reflective mood, or of a scene that puts you in a reflective mood or indeed of an actual reflection that is in someway redolent of moodiness.

As always, we’re looking to be surprised in a ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ sort of way, so stretch those creative sinews and reflect your world for all to enjoy.

The prizes for this challenge are:

Winner: $250 Momento voucher
Runner up: $150 Momento voucher

Preserve your memories in a premium quality  Momento photo book.
