'WALK THE LINE' 2019 Contest


Any ‘found’, unposed, uncontrived, impromptu & natural image-taken without the subject’s knowledge.

Images with no definite subject. Manipulated images. Images in which the subject knows of, and sometimes aids in, the creation of the image.

What conjures up your vision of something that could ‘walk the line’? Think about it-

Any image of a non-domestic creature in a natural habitat.

Landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, sunsets & any form of atmospheric phenomena.

Amateur Photography Competition

The Amateur Photography Competition is the portion of the Thin Line Photo Contest that is open to K through 12 students in Denton County and surrounding areas. It offers young artists the opportunity to display their artistic abilities through photography. They have five categories in which to enter their images. Four of the categories represent the most common forms of photographic expression- the last category relating to the theme of the 2019 Thin Line Fest- 'Walk the Line'. With visual art so much of an obvious and integral aspect of our society today, Thin Line attempts to promote and encourage our young aspiring artists with a platform that creates healthy competition. Finalists in this Amateur Competition will have their artwork shown beside the Finalist images from the Professional Competition. Those combined juried images from our 2019 Thin Line Photo Contest will be displayed in a professional gallery format at several venues during our Festival in April. Awards will be presented at a red carpet awards ceremony on Saturday, April 13 at the Campus Theatre.
