Peace is – International Photography Contest

The International Photo Competition “Peace Is…” will be held from April 6 until July 31, 2012. The contest is open and free of entry fees for all individuals, including minors.

Eligibility: Worldwide

Free to Enter

Prizes: The best 20 photos at the category “General” and the 10 best photos at the category “Students” will be exhibited in the photography exhibition to cities in Greece and abroad

Contest Details: show a photo that represents what is not Peace, next to a photo that represents Peace on the same subject. Examples can be through all fields of human activity: society, human relations, work, education, culture, environment, public health, spirituality, activism, community, politics etc. It is not asked to promote the contradictions of the present social conditions, rather the promotion of positive examples instead of the present “non Peace” conditions, a positive “exit” from a negative “mainstream”.

Photos can be colored, monochromes or creative (manipulated). We expect to see “pairs” with any technique or format the photographer wants. The photographers can participate by uploading up to 4 “pairs”.

The procedure is the follow:

– choose the photos that you want to upload (1 “negative” + 1 “positive” photo).

– fill the online form and upload those 2 photos that consist my “pair”. I can upload up to 4 “pairs” in the same form of participation (entry).

The photographs must have the following characteristics:
– Not more than 500kb in size
– Maximum side to be greater than 500 pixels and less than 900 Pixels
