4th Ozone Zone International Photo Salon
Our international photography competition is open to all photographers, amateurs and professionals, young and old, from around the globe. Our goal is to promote fine, artistic photography with a positive message to the world. A good deed or act of kindness captured on a photo, a social change for better, a beautiful element of nature, a deeply moving portrait or a special moment in life, a pristine wildlife scene, or a conceptual art image created in studio, they all qualify as having a positive message. No hate or derogatory images belong here.
The interpretation of contest themes belongs to you. Just keep in mind Ozone Zone Photo Salon jury looks for images bringing hope, showing compassion, love, and touching your mind with their artistry and beauty. The beauty can be shown in all of its forms, from a bare beauty of our planet, to an abstract or portrait, to surreal work of art.
2016 Themes: COLOUR open, MONOCHROME open, special theme: CHANGE, special theme: PORTRAIT and FINE NUDE.
CHANGE theme is inspired by Dominica – our new host country. It is a small but beautiful and unspoilt Caribbean island, people call it “nature island”. Last year Tropical Storm Erika pounded us badly, changing our little island’s landscape. But guess what – Dominica may look different, but as beautiful as ever – or even more attractive due to Erika’s changes. But the CHANGE theme is open to your interpretation. A change in life, in landscape, in situation, in mind of a photographer… Whatever CHANGE means to you, show it to the jury. Interpretation belongs to you.
Portrait and Fine Nude theme is also open to interpretation. From studio works, bodyscapes, to portraits and artistic explorations bordering on abstract – show us your best works involving human body. Both colour and monochrome images can be entered.
Open themes are, well, open. Anything can be entered as long as image originated as photograph. from a portrait, through abstract, architecture, surrealism, to still life. Just anything you think is good. Extensive computer manuipulation is permitted. Just adhere to Monochrome description by PSA and FIAP, if you enter a black and white image.
A positive feel and artistic value of entered images will be in focus of our jurors. We look forward to seeing your entries.
