Invitation to participate in the photographic project ´Via Lucis 1989-2009 – Czech society of the last 20 years in photographs´
Dear photographers, please allow us introduce this project to you.
The most important part of the project is the photo competition. It aims to gather photographs that make up a factual and spiritual mosaic of Czech society between the years 1989 and 2009 as well as to hold a mirror to this particular period. This competition is open to amateur or professional photographers without any restriction on age or nationality.
Themes of the photo competition:
A picture of Czech society during the years 1989 –2009:
- The year 1989 ▫ The West European life style (seaside holidays, leisure pursuits, new forms of entertainment, political meetings, globalization, shopping)
- Transformation of the economy (voucher privatization, the demise of factories, the transformation of the countryside)
- New family life (change of roles in the family, upbringing of children, satelite towns)
- Life of a politician
- Social projects (foundations etc.)
- European Parliament
We anticipate that the photographic genres will be reportage and documentary.
The deadline for the first part of the competition is 31st March 2008
We would be pleased if you choose to take part in our competition and tell your collegues and friends about it.
