Would you like to have your image displayed in Nikon House Centurion? Participate in our monthly Nikon Assignments and you could be one of seven lucky photographers who will get the opportunity to have their image displayed. Each Nikon Assignment will have a unique theme to challenge photographers to get creative and use their photographic skills.



The four elements, also called classical elements typically refer to the concepts in ancient Greece which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances.

In this assignment, we would like to see fire, water, earth and air.

Photos can be in color or in B&W. Photos must be submitted in portrait format. Not landscape.
