Icon of 30 Years – Freedom and Solidarity
We are seeking a photographic “Icon of 30 Years”
This year, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the turning point year of ’89 in Poland. Together with photographers, we are looking for a picture that will serve as a symbol of these three decades of change.
The iconic photograph may relate to a single event, a social process, a person or a group of people, a space, or to architecture or culture. We are seeking something that symbolically encapsulates these changes.
Our invitation to this quest is aimed at photographers in Poland and abroad, photographic agencies, as well as heirs of photographers who are no longer with us. We appreciate that it may well require much labour: searching through archives and perhaps even discovering yet unpublished photographs. But at the end of this quest, we want to be able to select an icon that will also serve to stimulate discussions on recent history.
The “Icon of 30 Years” will be chosen by an international jury. The winner’s prize will be 30,000 zl (approx. €7,000), and will include promotion of the picture in Poland and around the world.
The joint organisers of the competition are Dom Spotkań z Historią [History Meeting House] and Press Club Polska. The “Icon of 30 Years” competition is being held under the patronage of the International Association of Press Clubs (IAPC).
We will accept entries up to 23:59 hrs Central European Time (CET) on 10 May 2019.
