2HeadS Contest: Self-Portrait

2HeadS challenges you for its first contest!

2HeadS was founded by Gonzalo Bénard, the editor, when his works of photography started being lectured in several universities, with the aim to help and guide students of photography/emerging photographers. It soon became a reference and after 4 months the feedback and number of readings was already magnificent from all over the world.

Now, on its 6th month, 2HeadS challenges you with its first contest!
