FOTOGRAFIJA Association for photographic culture are pleased to announce registrations for 4th Salon of Photography Cakovec 2014 are now OPEN !
Salon of Photography Čakovec was created with a clear goal – to popularize good photography, to help it escape out of mediocrity and stand out in the crowded media landscape and in human consciousness. The basic criterion is that a good photograph must display an original idea while the artistic elements and technical quality, although also very important, are in the background. Because, what is a beautiful photograph without an idea behind it? Merely a brief visual experience that quickly vanishes from the memory of the beholder. On the other hand, a good photograph motivates, reminds us, emotionally encourages, inspires, reexamines, stays remembered. As a result, selecting the main theme of this year’s Salon (and one the Salon will hopefully keep as a constant theme in the future), an open theme collection, was certainly not coincidental. The task is clear, yet not simple: to present an idea through a series of related photos.
Our desire, striving, and task is to help the Salon evolve into an international tradition, recognizable by a strict, but fair selection, equally representing all generations of authors, regardless of the style and photographic techniques. On the other hand, it is imperative that the Salon’s quality of jury, selection and presentation remains unquestionable and incontestable. This year’s jury members come from three different countries, and each of them has many years of experience in the evaluation of works at international competitions.
A) Series – free
