How 20 Artists See the Color Red

We asked artists to interpret the color red for our monthly contest, Format Picks. These are some of the best images we found.

The first edition of Format Picks, our monthly contest series, asked artists to submit work inspired by the color red. This theme surfaced some bold, color-saturated images. Red appears in a neon cross on a church; a spray-painted police helmet left over from a protest; a Twin Peaks-inspired red room; a light leak across trees in the Black Forest; a snow-covered hut under mountains.

These are just a few of our favorite images from Format Picks February. We were overwhelmed by how many incredible entries we saw, and we can’t wait to see what you submit this month. Check back soon for March’s contest theme and prize. And don’t miss the work of Carson Gilliland, who won February’s Format Picks with a striking photo series.
