Those of you who have been following this blog for a while may remember a challenge I posted a long time ago: The Naked Face Challenge. I asked people to send me pictures of themselves without makeup on so I could put all the pictures together to make a collage. Well, I only received about four submissions (and I still have them all!) – not enough to make a collage.
However, now that Picnik is closing (I’m sorry to say) and their collage feature is free, I wanted to try this challenge again and see if I could get at least ten more people to join in. And perhaps we should widen the scope, since our challenge this year is about body image (not just our faces). How about sending me pictures of yourselves “naked” – whatever that means to you.
Perhaps you really hate your thighs. How about embracing them and sending me a picture? You can wear pants, a bathing suit…whatever suits you. Whatever pushes your limits just a little bit. You can just send a picture of a body part (LOL) or of your whole body. The point is to be NAKED – as in, revealing your vulnerability and loving it. It might be your toes, like The Organic Sister, who put hers out there for the world to see. Maybe you’ve got a crooked tooth, a beaky nose, a saggy bum. Put it out there! Make it your trademark.
I’ll even go so far as to say that I will accept nude and semi-nude photos, so long as they are tasteful and won’t get my blog shut down! I do, however, reserve the right to choose not to include photos I judge to be inappropriate in any way.
I would like to post the collage on April 9th, 2012. So please send in your contributions no later than April 6th. You may email your photos to me at email@example.com. Any photos sent to me are considered fair game to use in the collage. I reserve the right to make small edits (for size) to the photos. The photos you send will ONLY be used in the collage. I will not use them for any other purpose without your written permission.
Please join in!
