ONTHEMOVE International Photo Award

COTM_LOGO-2bianco Happiness On The Move/Felicità in Movimento. ONTHEMOVE is an International Award open to photographers, professionals and amateurs, from all over the world, with no limitations of age.

At its second edition the award was created, with the confidence to assert itself as a permanent appointment within the international photo festival Cortona On The Move – photography in travel.

The main theme is Happiness On The Move. Its interpretation is left free to the vision, creativity and sensitivity of the authors who are called to reflect on the theme, moving away from its purely literal meaning and to develop it in its various aspects.

Special attention is given to the theme of movement as a real or figurative journey and to the happiness that follows:

“Travel is a kind of door through which one goes out from reality as to enter an unexplored reality that resembles a dream.” Guy de Maupassant

Happiness is a choice, as an ideal image within a wider and more complex story, it’s something inner, that you find despite the problems, but not without problems.

Happiness is a fleeting moment that can occur in a series of random events and we have to recognize it or pass by indifferently… Happiness is suspension, poetic digression, a picture that brings your memory back to a place, glancing details, fragments of joy like those “in between moments” that are held on to in order to be revised and re-lived, and that in every moment of our existence constantly nourish life.

The purpose of the International Award ONTHEMOVE is to tell visually all the manifestations of joy and celebration of life. Participants are invited to submit works that develop in an original way the general theme of the competition. The jury is exclusively online and is made up of professionals and experts.
