Competitions interPHOTO’ International Juried Photo Exhibition

interPHOTORoscoff, Bretagne, France

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: August 1, 2018 – interPHOTO is a project whose mission is to host juried exhibitions providing opportunities for professional and non-professional photographers worldwide, to have their work evaluated by a panel of judges with stellar credentials in international photography.

VENUE
Selected work will be exhibited in Salon des Expositions, Bâtiment du Canot Sauvetage in Roscoff, a coastal resort-town on the Finistère peninsular in NW France. Works will also be displayed on our website.

THEME
The body always expresses the spirit whose envelope it is. And for him who can see, the nude offers the richest meaning. — Auguste Rodin (1840–1917).

interPHOTO focuses on the fine art genre to enable photographers explore a challenging picture of reality and express their emotions in specific circumstances. The viewer will thereby be encouraged to encounter aesthetic moments closer to the artist’s experience. Our theme is the Body/Image in black and white. Celebration of the nude in nature and the studio is accentuated by the absence of color functioning as an incentive that unlocks poetic feelings and leads to new paths of aesthetic realization.

ELIGIBILITY
All photographers, aged 18 years and older, from all countries of the world are eligible.
