CITY OF GUIMARÃES: VISUAL NARRATIVES ABOUT EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE (CEC) 2012


The 1st Edition of CITYSCOPIO – ESPAÇO F - FAUP International Photography Narrative Contest has as title "CITY OF GUIMARÃES: VISUAL NARRATIVES ABOUT EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE (CEC) 2012" and its results will be published in a special issue of SCOPIO Magazine on Guimarães 2012, European Capital of Culture.


The visual narratives submitted to contest should make use of the photography image in an exploratory way, as a communication vehicle of the richness and variety of the territory and city of Guimarães.


The contest categories include (1) Documentary and (2) Conceptual Narratives, both of which comprehend or support any form of photography. The category (1) Documentary Narratives covers contemporary photography narratives that aim to communicate the reality of today's world in in respect to diverse events, people, issues and cultures. It includes works that, somehow, may be close to photo-journalism. The category (2) Conceptual Narratives includes contemporary photography narratives with a strong artistic component - documentary fiction. Conceptual Narratives are based upon ideas and emotions where the imaginary has a significant weight. These works should inspire our imagination and are freer from the need to portray reality with complete "documentary objectivity”.


The visual narratives should be sent by October December 31st 2012 23:59 (Portuguese time) using the web service WeTransfer at http://www.wetransfer.com/, addressed to the following email: narrativecontest@cityscopio.com.
