February, 2019 Shift Art Photoshop Challenge is Closed!
Theme: Overcoming Struggle!
Life is not easy… This month we’ll have a look at those times in our lives where things were really tough; those times when we had to dig deep into ourselves to overcome something truly difficult.
Use your creativity to show the difficulties of life’s toughest moments, how you overcame them and grew or changed as a result.
Here are a few challenge prompts to get you started: What is/was your toughest life struggle? What were you faced with? What did you learn? Did you experience a shift in yourself on the other side of it? Do you look at life, yourself, the world differently now?
We look forward to seeing your entries!
