[Review] Challenge of March (2)


The second challenge for March was ‘Mask’.

This challenge overflowed with entries that depicted the wide interpretation of masks through diverse mask designs, masks that mirror cultures of every nation, people wearing masks and other entries that reflected philosophical thoughts on self and identity.

There were so many great entries that in this challenge 16 pictures were nominated.
