Wonderful Naples Prize International photo contest
The Wonderful Naples Prize International photo contest aims to show Naples as a misunderstood city. The Cultural Association Photo Polis, in partnership with Videometrò News Network and the participation of Touring Club Italiano, is launching a photo competition open to amateurs and professionals of all ages. The contest aims to show the deepest reality of the city in all its aspects: art, architecture, creativity and excellence in every cultural, social and productive field.
Themes a) City and natural landscape b) Everyday life c) Art d) Creativity and excellence e) Neapolitan Surrealism f) Original stories
The winner of the Wonderful Naples Prize contest will show his “hidden Naples”, far from typical postcard stereotypes, and the images will not be exhibited in the usual art galleries but in the subways, under the eyes of the countless people traveling there every day. Videometrò News Network, present in the main underground stations of Naples, will air the images of the winner on a daily basis for a month, in random mode, in the stations of the underground, cable railways, Cumana, Circumflegrea and Circumvesuviana lines where they reach over 300,000 passengers daily.
Contestants will set up a portfolio made of 10 images showing the uniqueness of the city, from which they will choose up to three to submit to the contest. The artwork will be evaluated by a jury of professionals in the fields of photography, communication, graphics, journalism, architecture and art: Giuseppe Albanese, Mariangela Contursi, Pino Grimaldi, Rosaria Iazzetta, Antonio Menna, Sergio Olivotti, Sergio Siano e Pietro Treccagnoli.
The awards ceremony, presented by Mario Scippa, will be held at Città della Scienza on 12 June, 2014 and the complete artwork of the winner will be displayed by Videometrò News Network from 15 June to 15 July, 2014
