The World’s Best Artistic Nude Photographs
By entering the NUDE 2015 Contest organized by PhotoShoot Awards a site owned by Hors cadre Inc. (Montreal, Canada), you accept the rules and conditions outlined below.
1. Why Nude?
- Taboo subject to some, offensive to others. Artistic nude, however, is among one of the four basic themes of art which include portraits, landscape and still life. As in painting or sculpture, artistic nude photography is considered a classic artistic research.
- In a world where violence and misunderstanding have become everyday normalities, we consider nude photography a symbol of resistance, a moment of freedom, a reaction against the ugliness and vulgarity of certain actions and words.
