IN COLORS PROJECT – React!
Until January 20, photographers and artists of any nationality, recognized, emerging or unknown, are invited to propose works in the universe of digital photography that manifest Art and Reflection. React! is the proposed theme, intentionally comprehensive, open to different visions.
Conceived in the middle of the pandemic, IN COLORS PROJECT is a reaction to the uncertain times in which we live, particularly challenging for the cultural and creative sector. We want to see the present and the future “in color”. Under this figurative sense, an initiative receptive to all aesthetics, to color and black and white, was created, which aims to generate new opportunities for photographers.
As part of the IN COLORS PROJECT, a cash prize of 3.000€ will be awarded. The application is free of charge.
Through this Call, will be found the works for the Exhibition that will inaugurate the Lumicroma | Photography Art Gallery. More than an online gallery, it is installing a platform of global scope for the valuing of photography and photographers.
Based in Portugal and open to the world, Lumicroma heads towards 2022 with the intention of continuing to foster the Photographic Culture, extending its commitment to the promotion of artistic photography – analog, digital or hybrid – and the recognition of its authors.
