What does it mean to be an American?

Show us what it means, to you, to be American. Show us the people in their environment, and experiences that define America through your photographic images. There is no limit to the subject matters you shoot, from family and friends, to selfies, your images can also vary in photographic styles and methods of imaging, be it your camera or your mobile device. We simply want to see honest portraits that reflect the realities defining our country.
