PictureSlovenia.com, in cooperation with the Slovenian Tourist Board and partners, continues the global photography competition, through which it wants to increase the visibility of Slovenia in the world and encourage visitors, fans and friends of Slovenia to get involved in the presentation of Slovenia. The contest ends: 22 May 2012. Publication of winners: 4 June 2012.
If you are an amateur or professional photographer and have already visited Eastern Europe and Slovenia, or you may be in Slovenia during the contest, then you might be interested. If you want to visit Slovenia in the future and you are an amateur or professional photographer, you also have enough time to participate in the contest.
The competition takes place in three categories: (1) Best photograph, (2) Photograph with a mobile phone and the (3) Top photo series (reportage) on Slovenia. There will be three main prizes:
- The best photograph will be selected on the basis that best presents Slovenia - the prize that will be awarded is 10,000 euros (gross).
- The category ‘Photograph’ with a mobile phone is intended to award the best photograph taken with a mobile apparatus, so in this category, a jury will select a photograph that was created using a mobile phone camera. The winner will receive a prize of 3000 euros (gross).
- In the category ‘Top photo series’ the jury will award the author who publishes a number of photos, from which the jury will select the top five, representing a series. Among all, the jury will select a series that, through photo reportage, most interestingly and pervasively represents Slovenia. A prize of 3,000 (gross) euros will be awarded.
www.PictureSlovenia.com is the online representation for the largest photo contests in Slovenia - so far it has been visited by over 160,000 people from 65 countries worldwide. The online part of the project was just the beginning of a long-term project; namely, in 2011 and 2012, Picture Slovenia found its place in the form of physical exhibitions around the world, mainly in Europe.
