Main Idea


Main IDEA’s Photo Theme: “Home”

Capture a photo of nature that makes you feel a sense of “home.”

How it Works
All submissions must be original photographs taken recently. To enter, send your submissions to or tag @mainideama & @towerhillbg on Instagram and use the hashtag #thbgteenphotochallenge. Be sure your submission or post includes your Instagram handle, first nameage, town of residence, the challenge your submission falls under, and a short caption about your photographParticipants should be sure to save their original photographs as .jpg files in case they are chosen as a finalist. Submissions will be accepted July 1 through August 31.  

Each week we will choose five submissions that best exemplify the themes to be featured in our Friday Instagram storiesEach time you complete a challenge, you will be entered to win four gate passes to Tower Hill Botanic Garden for a total of up to six entries. The twenty finalists that best exemplify the themes through their work will be chosen to have their photographs displayed as part of a future art exhibition in our Milton Gallery.  

This year’s theme is Human Nature. Nature is resilient and finds a way to flourish despite the human caused threats of deforestation, climate change, pollution, and more. We can appreciate the beauty of nature in the most unexpected of places, and even in the hardest of times, nature helps us reflect and recharge. These six challenges explore the relationship between humans and nature, highlighting and celebrating the fact that we are not separate from nature, but rather an integral part of it. Even in the busiest of cities and hardest of times, nature, like people, finds a way to persevere.
