A photograph taken from the base of a canyon of rust-red rock. A triangle of white sky can be seen between the two canyon sides, creating a central focal point for the image. Overlayed on this image is bold, bright pink text that reads '#19: ECHO'.

You call out and a voice comes back to you. Is it yours? A sonic splintering? Or are there other voices calling? Is it a chorus? Harmonious? Or is it interference?

Are these voices of ghosts from another world or dwellers from the world you occupy and share? What is gained and lost in this echo? Let us know.

Submissions EXTENDED! Now open until 11.59pm Sunday 12 July AEST!
