Application procedure:
The competition is articulated around themes, in order to gather, across the years, a heterogeneous and varied landscape of the performance arts. The theme for this edition is: Ritratti ad arte - Artful portraits (Portraits from the world of the scenic arts).
The candidate can participate with a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 20 images.
The portraits can be posed, realized in a studio, staged or caught in action.
A portrait can also be the narrative through visual images of an artist or a professional of the scenic arts.
Any other interpretation in the technical or conceptual approach of a photographic portrait is welcome.
Applicants can present portraits of one or more subjects; in a second moment, the jury could ask to examine, in addition to the selected images, the series of photographs from which the applicant made her/his selection, in order to better evaluate the photographer’s work.
