Join The #DiscoverWithAlpha Global Photo Challenge

The past several months have presented new challenges for creators, yet despite these challenges many are still managing to find new ways to do what they do best – create. From pet portraits and porch portraits, to macro therapy and miniature landscapes, to at-home food photography and dynamic beverage shots. It’s clear that as our world continues to change, using the camera as an outlet to discover remains the same objective. We want to see those discoveries, and that’s why we’re kicking off the #DiscoverWithAlpha Photo Challenge!

Join the #DiscoverWithAlpha Photo Challenge! Post your Sony photos to Instagram using #DiscoverWithAlpha for the chance to be featured.

How To Join

Between now and August 31, post your Sony photos on Instagram using #DiscoverWithAlpha. We’ll be featuring our favorites here on AlphaUniverse.com and on @sonyalpha social channels. See some of the discoveries creators have already made below, and enter yours today – we can't wait to see the new ways you find to create!
