INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY
Open to all photographers internationally.
Seeking the truthfulness of photojournalism through aiming your camera as a street photographer, or capturing the honesty and spontaneity of a candid snapshot showing domestic life is both a thrilling and fulfilling endeavor. These photographic approaches utilize the decisive moment and the aesthetic sensibilities of images captured in the longstanding tradition of documentary photography. We are interested to see how you are looking straightforward at life out there and also close to you. This exhibition aims to represent a free-spoken take on personal interest photography and the frankness of bold newsworthy photography taken in a downright sincere and uncontrived way.
Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist. Theme based entries are not necessary. A brief artist statement is optional.
