2014 NIAF Photo Contest

2014 NIAF Photo Contest The National Italian American Foundation is now accepting submissions for our second annual 2014 NIAF Photo Contest. The topic: Finding Italy Beyond Italy

Share your photograph that best captures those moments and scenes that are Italy—only they’re not in Italy. Maybe they’re in your own backyard, maybe in your hometown, or at that Italian American festival, or in the glint of your child’s eye. Where ever or whatever, they just can’t be a photo taken in Italy!

Submissions may be poignant, breathtaking, funny, emotional, heartfelt or dramatic. They may be portraits, travel photos, spontaneous moments, family gatherings, ancestors, culinary images, architectural shots, etc.

While technical quality, composition and clarity are important, judges will be looking for images that best express finding Italy anywhere but in Italy! You may submit only an image that you have taken yourself or that belongs to you personally. One submission per person.

Each submission must include:

• Name
• Address
• E-mail address
• Phone number
• Photographic equipment used to take photo (camera, phone, tablet reader, etc.).
• Brief caption information: Who or what is in the photo; where and when was it was taken; and why you think the photo expresses Italy Beyond Italy.
