Short description

Photometria International Photography Festival for 13th continuous year in Greece, is calling for entries to its 2021 Photography Awards.

This time participants are invited to interpret the theme “(Un)lucky (R)evolution” in only 1 original picture photo.

Photometria festival is organized for 13th continuous year in Ioannina city, while Greece celebrates 200 years since the Greek revolution. These two conditions inspired this year’s festival title. On one side, stands the popular expression of “unlucky 13”, on the other, the word revolution, honorary to rebellion’s anniversary. However, both words also hide “luck” and “evolution”, creating in this way a game among meanings. The prejudice of jinx is revoked by positive, lucky, outcomes, in a frame where we believed that they are not possible. A revolution, even a suppressed one, will eventually bring evolution. A kind of evolution that does not always mean improvement, a kind of evolution that may affect others than only humans. Which is our luck as mankind? Which is our evolution? What follows a revolution and for what is worth a person to revolute nowadays? Guided by luck but also by our own decisions, how do we wish to evolve ecumenical as humans, as society? The title wants to bring into the center these and other questionings. We live during a critical era, in which we are responsible for the future. The results of the best 25 photos will be announced on the 15 June 2021. Several days later, three winners will be announced. The exhibition of the winning photos will take place during 13th Photometria International Photography Festival.

Submission requirements:

The applicants have the right to send only 1 picture photo, not bigger than 500kb.

If your photo is selected to the top 25, you will be asked for your original file in a good resolution for printing.

Who may enter?

The best 3 works will be awarded with prizes provided by the event sponsors. The exhibition “(Un)lucky (R)evolution” in Ioannina city, will also travel to other Greek cities after the end of the festival.
