CMA Photo Hunt Assignment 3: Joy

June 8, 2012 at



In the second Columbus Museum of Art Photo Hunt assignment we challenged you to capture something that reflects the word "resourcefulness." (You have until midnight tonight to submit photos that reflect resourcefulness). See all the wonderful submissions for the first two assignments in the CMA Photo Hunt Gallery.

CMA Photo Hunts are inspired by our The Radical Camera show and the Photo Leaguers, who challenged themselves to capture a word or phrase, and then they'd have a big party to critique and celebrate. Through the run of The Radical Camera we'll be posting new photo assignment challenges.

For the third CMA Photo Hunt assignment here is your challenge:


  • Capture something that reflects the word "Joy." How you capture it is up to you.

  • Tag your work on Twitter, Flickr or Instagram with #CMAPhotoHunt and #Joy, plus your #city.

  • For this next assignment you have until Friday June 15, 2012.


Catherine Evans, our William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography, will select a few of her favorites, and your creation could grace the walls at Columbus Museum of Art come this fall.

CMA Photo Hunts are assignments designed to flex your creative muscle, but they are also about building a community. Most of you are submitting through Instagram. We encourage you to follow your fellow modern day Photo Leaguers, and comment on work that impresses you or moves you.

As added incentive for this third assignment, Catherine will be blogging about some of her favorite photos from the first three assignments, and why they work so well.

We're impressed with all your good work so far. Now get out there, and happy shooting!
