The theme

In this occasion WPGA wants to select images displaying your city or neighborhood, or that city that you visited this summer or in past years, or it can be the country landscape of your dreams, that one that have stimulated your eyes and your imagination; images about the city and the country life, the culture in your home town or in the remote Bhutan or in La Havana; images of that unforgettable wedding or of your family during a remarkable week-end or at home.
The theme is ample and everything will depend on your interpretation, knowing that we will like to screen landscapes and cityscapes with or without people in the scene. People can be predominant in the scene.
Both color and black and white (including duotones, toned) will be accepted to be screened. Abstract, micro and macro images will not be accepted. All kind of processes, including digital manipulation will be accepted.
