We weren't lucky with our most recent assignment details here, dead before its time, so we've decided to turn our attention onto something more challenging, something that has always stirred much more interest than anything else, even that major sports event now taking place in London. It's something serious, something that has bugged us all for centuries and we hope you can answer the eternal "Who am I?" question with creative, amazing, original, fun images. Here it comes:

Self-portraiture has always been a tough challenge for all artists. It has never ceased to stir interest as we've always been curious about what the others see themselves as. So Dreamstime contributors, share your secrets and show us who you are. Reveal the portrait of your self!

The self-portrait has taken dark, optimistic, real or imagined shapes throughout time. It can reflect a temporary mood or a general way of living your life, it can show an ordinary person or a superhuman. The greatest thing about a self-portrait is that it does not need to portray you as the others see you. It can show the one you dream of being, the one aspire to become or even the one you once were. Your self-portrait can be a superhero, a fantasy place that defines you, a dream persona, a word cluster that tell the others who you are. Keep in mind that self-portraits are not just pretty faces in a frame, they are you, in a multitude of views, of angles, of interpretations. You can be a head full of pictures, a body-shaped lush tree, a funny colorful face. Just be creative, original and most of all, be yourself. Portraits of the self, especially conceptual and metaphoric ones, are popular in the social media age. People may not see themselves in your face, but they may identify with your picture of the inner self. So a self portrait can be more than a glimpse of your soul. It can be the statement of a generation.

Best self-portraits will be rewarded with $300 for the first place, $200 for the second place and $100 for the third place. The winners will also get our Dreamstime branded t-shirts to wear for a great personality touch to self portraits.

Good luck!

By the time my wireless remote shows up in my mailbox i bet this assignment is probably gonna be over, unfortunately. I've been wanting to do some self portraits anyway, so maybe i can figure out how to get this T2i to focus for my self-portrait without me, then i can press the 10 second timer and run to my spot in the picture... i have a really great idea i think. AND I WANT THE $300 :)

I hope I am not ruining your enthusiasm, but you might want to get 48 more images approved first :)
