Telling a Story with Images

Prada There is no initial entry fee for this competition. Only those series accepted will pay an entry fee.

The theme: In this occasion WPGA wants to select images that are telling a story. It can be a real story or a fiction created by the imagination of the artist.

The theme is open: a story of clouds and storms, a love affair, a political statement, your family party or the houses of your neighbourhood. It could be a fairy story digitalized by you imagination, or the life of the natives in Peru. Or perhaps it is the story of a wedding, the aftermath of a natural disaster, or illustrative images of your last trip in India.

There are no limitations to your work provided you’re submitting a story with images or a coherent body of work in terms of thematic displayed. Telling a story with images is interacting with the viewers to show a mood, an environment, a editorial statement or a particular event.
