Sceadu was inspired by the human shadow, that grey supposed docile shape that is always by our side. The idea behind this contest is to give centre stage to shadows.

All you have to do is click an interesting photo of any shadow, human, other life form, or any other object and submit it via the form below. And if you can send a caption along with it, all the better.

But mind you, if its the shadow of a person, we only want the shadow and not the person to protect their privacy! This is only for human sources of shadows. Non-human lifeforms and other objects can be included in the photo along with their shadows.


The contest runs from Sep 15, 2014 till Nov 14, 2014. The winners will be announced on Nov 15, 2014 on our Blog, Facebook pages and Twitter. Winners shall also be notified individually by email.


Five contestants will EACH win an e-book copy of Sceadu!
