Visible White Photo Prize 2017

Visible White Photo Prize is an international photo competition founded in 2012 by Celeste Network and Fondazione Studio Marangoni to support international photographers and artists who engage, creatively, with what is moving personal, social and political issues today. The applications for the 6th edition of this important contest dedicated to contemporary photography are still open.

The theme chosen for the occasion is In Conflict, a theme that aims to stimulate and bring out the expressive ability of the participants to recognize and to find a way to visually represent «new manias collide nations and peoples in ever more forceful social and political conflictualities, with unforseen effects on personal and public behaviour». Indeed, as explained by the organizers, «By proposing In Conflict photographers and artists have the opportunity to reflect on a theme which emphasizes and encourages this return to a collective consciousness or a consciousness at the service of communities. In this sense the theme also talks about conflicts which are denied or kept silent, which relate to the family or to personal conflicts that can go beyond the personal sphere that are also questions of society, such as violence against women, societal unease, the individual’s inner conflicts. Another priority for Visible White Photo Prize’s call In Conflict, is to invite photographers and artists using the photographic medium to explore with the use of original and personal forms of visual language, distant worlds, intimate universes, or to venture further afield into new forms of documentary photography or poetic realism. Or to look for alternatives or complementary ways to those distributed by television or internet’s information processing that have changed the traditional codes of photojournalism».

The Visible White Photo Prize 2017 is open to both Italian and foreign photographers, artists and creative talents, regardless of age or experience.
