The submission may include one or two series, provided that the two series are suitable for a joint presentation in a single exhibition. There are no generic, stylistic or thematic constraints; photographers working in all photographic areas and styles are welcome to submit their work.
The winner of this competition will be awarded a solo exhibition from January 14 – February 3, 2021.
