a static scene containing one or more actors, or models. Tableaux Vivants are
stationary and silent, usually in costume, carefully posed, with props and/or
scenery, and may be theatrically lit. Only silent, physical representations
of your thematic kitty Halloween scene will be eligible. Photo editing tools
can be used for your background scene. We require all qualifying entries to be
submitted only through Instagram. Only photos
published to Instagram during the contest period are eligible.
