Joy of Contrast
The fruits of success taste sweet because of the hard work that preceded it. The beauty of a flower is heightened by the fact that it’s destined to wither.
Imagine how the world would be without the brightest stars against the darkest sky, or without the clouds hindering the bright afternoon sun. Life would be different from as we know it: it would feel flat and monotonous.
We are calling upon the artists to submit works that reveal to us the joy of life through harmony: the harmony created by things that contest each other, the harmony between the contrasting forces.
Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply; individuals should select and enter between six and ten photographs from a particular series or body of work. Artist of the year (winner) and between 10 and 20 photographers / artists will benefit from:
