Call

People come out of darkness and return to it as shooting stars.

Are they self-luminous or not? Do they reflect or emanate light?

Is the photography an ark of memory where the pictured world rescued from the oblivion’s gloom?

Let the above words constitute food for thought for anyone who wishes to participate in the people-centered photography competition using analog or digital cameras, or other new media. The Juries will judge the b/w or color photos and the best will be printed by the organizers and will be part of a photography exhibition in Athens and in Amfissa city, Greece. They will also be included in the digital catalogue of the exhibition and showcased on a web photo gallery. The show is foreseen to be exhibited in other venues as well.
