Purpose of the contest:
Create a backdrop photo that Venice Beach Hostel can then superimpose a guest's face on the picture - to give as a free gift to VBH guests
VBH plans to take full-face photos of guests / staff, the photo face is for the purpose of placing in/onto the contest photos.
Since the photo / photo composite is designed to work as a modern-day equivalent of photographers' backdrops; it should have a body / character positioned so that VBH may impose a guest's full-face shot on the body / character - full face.
Angled body is OK, as well, as long as a mostly full-face or full-face can be placed.
Color and/or black & white
Art work, graphic work, etc. may be added and/or substituted for straight photo
