Photo House “On a Journey”

Le Dame Art Gallery is proud to announce the first edition of its Photo House Photography Competition. We are excited about opening the doors to the most popular form of visual media, photography. The aim of this international competition is to extend our art gallery collection to include a brand new photography section. Having been scouting emerging artists over the past  four years, our Contemporary Art Gallery in London, wishes to offer all talented photographers the chance to show their unique vision of communicating ways of seeing the world.The Photo House Photography Competition gives all participants the opportunity to have their work judged by a jury of experts; win prizes and be included in the London exhibition. The first 15 pictures shortlisted by the jurors will be showcased in our London gallery from the 1st of November to the 2nd of December 2017. “A photograph is worth a 1000 words” as we know, and we believe Photography is Fine Art. Be part of this competition and share your vision. It will be a great honor to include your contribution.

‘On a journey’ is the theme for the PHOTO HOUSE 2017.

Once in a lifetime, we have all embarked on a journey, an exotic trip or holiday. An adventurous expedition, as a necessity, a means of escape or the only way out. There is also our daily commute alone, in a car, or on a crowded train. Travelling is the dimension of movement triggered by the unstoppable search for something new, or unusual. It also represents self-exploration of our inner thoughts and hopes, which may be faced with both excitement and fear. Photographers are invited to capture the emotions which go beyond the immediate experience of travelling, to include the diverse worlds which conflict and coexist simultaneously in modern life. All visual interpretations of these concepts are welcomed. Documentary and conceptual, as well as storytelling and abstract.

The Competition is curated by Lichena Bertinato and organised by the Board. Images will be selected by the Judging Panel.

15 artists will be selected to be part of the Photo House Collective Exhibition at Le Dame Art Gallery. Read more…
