The theme for the 2021 Annual Photo Competition and Exhibition (aka Mighty Mo Photo Show) is Capturing Sound.

Have you ever seen a photo or a painting and recognized a feeling, or a smell, or a memory? This year we are asking photographers to focus on one of our five senses and try to Capture Sound in their photo. What would it sound like to step into their photo? Can the audience hear what they were hearing when they took the photo?

This photo competition is open to photographers of all ages and experience levels. See the competition requirements for more information.
