CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST OPEN TO ENTRY PHOTO CONTESTS
3rd edition of the Portraits and People Competition
Only accepted images in the first screening pay an entry fee. Open to artists worldwide. Hosted by The Worldwide Photography Gala awards. Mixed techniques are welcome.
PEOPLE: Snap shots (or drawings and paintings) and street photography/drawing/paintings where people are predominant in the scene – quoting Cartier Bresson: the “decisive moment”. Travel photography/drawing/painting displaying the different cultures around the globe; images about the daily life of the family, people at work, ceremonies and rituals, games people play and children at school; sports and wedding; conflicts and the aftermath…
FIGURE AND NUDE: Composed image of a person in a still position; an art form, where the photography/paint/draw of a nude or the human figure is a stylized depiction of body with the line and form of the human figure as the primary objective; it is an image that studies the human body rather than the person; as opposed to a portrait may not show a face at all.
PORTRAIT: Images capturing the likeness of a person or a small group of people, in which the face and its expression is predominant.
SELF PORTRAIT: When the artist creates a portrait of him- or herself; it could be alone or with other people if the composition configures a desired environment.
CHILDREN:The visual presentation of children as individuals.
Judging and Fees: Judging will be in two stages, the first to choose the images that will go on to the second stage. The second stage will decide which images go into the book and those images will be subject to a fee payable by the artist: $15 each for the first three images (that is $15 for one image; $30 for 2 images; $45 for 3 images accepted) and $10 each for subsequent accepted image.
Notifications of the first screening will be sent out on within 7 days of reception of your work. (Jurors of the first screening: WPGA Artistic and Editorial Team)
Notifications of the final result of the second judging stage will be sent out in the last week of November. (Juror of the Second and final screening: Julio Hardy, Executive Director of WPGA)
Every artist who submits work that is rejected will receive a brief explanation by email.
Fees should be paid with PayPal or with credit/debit card through PayPal. Artists with accepted images in the first screening will receive a invoice to settle the entry fees and enter the final judging round.
The Book: The book will be published and on sale on or before the end of 2011. Being featured in the book is at no cost, and purchase is optional.
