Exhibition Theme

Our theme is Lockdown in Black and White. Photographers from countries around the world will have the opportunity to showcase the diverse images produced during the COVID-19 Lockdown, necessitated by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has engulfed the entire world. The layers of meaning embedded in each photograph are accentuated by the absence of color, which unlocks poetic feelings that lead to new paths of aesthetic realization.

 

Panel of Judges

The following experts in international photography will constitute the panel of judges: Prof. Clémentine Bony-Devaux (France), Dr.Lourdes Delgado (Spain), Prof. Jim Gabbard (USA), Abelardo Mena (Cuba), and Prof Beatrix Reinhardt (Germany/USA).

 

Selection and Awards

interPHOTO uses a masked judging system where the authorship of submissions is not disclosed to judges in the selection process. Images will be selected by the international panel of judges for exhibition online at the interPHOTO website. Best in Show, Second Place, Third Place, and Honorable Mention Certificates will be awarded. Each participant in the exhibition will receive a Certificate of Participation. Vulgar or profane images will be disqualified.
