2022 Theme: Home and Habitat
The theme Home and Habitat calls for the submission of visual representations of home, habitat. The theme celebrates the diversity and unique spaces and places both humans and animals alike consider home. Images, videos and audio clips can capture the environment in which people live – their quarters, lodgings, rooms, addresses, locations, dens, nests, burrows and caves.
Homes and habitats are considered places of safety and peace where people and animals can relax, recover, rest, reconnect with family and community, and where they can fully express themselves, their tastes, their identity and heritage.
There are many elements that make a home a home. Below are just some ideas to explore ...

A space that reflects your identity and design aesthetic - contemporary or traditional - whether traditional dwellings, modern contructions, temporary or permanent, traditional or contemporary:
Activities within the home - cooking and food creation:
Spaces to relax and unwind, play, recover or reconnect:
Construction materials, architectural and design details, and all aspects of design are encouraged
Or places where necessary functions must be contained, such as in this collection of ablution facilities ...
