The same image cannot be submitted in color version and in the monochrome version.

An image that has already been accepted in a previous edition of Salon Daguerre can not be submitted again.


  • ‘Festive atmosphere’, to be in the birthday spirit of the Photoclub which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year
    The image illustrates a ritual, a party, a celebration, a sports, cultural or social event and is dominated by jubilation or joy. It captures the excitement of a moment, the joyful dynamics of a group, the positive energy created and carried by a group. The image highlights an atmosphere, gaiety and cohesion shared by a community of individuals at a given moment. The presence of these individuals may be explicit or simply suggested. Images representing political events are not accepted
  • ‘Water’, liquid and vital, we await your glance on this variable and multiple element
    Water should be the subject or one of the main subjects of the image. Flowing, stagnant, unfurling water! The photographs can be taken in a natural environment that is either rural or urban. They could represent obvious spaces, such as the seaside, a river, a lake or a pond, or more unexpected scenes, such as a simple pool or even an aquarium. Water should be shown in its liquid form (no snow, no steam, no ice)
  • ‘Perspectives’, for the pleasure of visual effects and lines
    Creating the illusion of a three-dimensional world with two-dimensional photos is no small challenge. You can use vanishing lines, high- or low-angle shots, scale variations as well as any natural or artificial means based on line geometry to give your images a sense of depth, dimension, and graphic impact
  • Open monochrome
  • Open color


  • Sophie Belloni-Vitou
