PHOTO CONTEST and CREATIVE EXPERIMENT Portrait Pathways

Strongly believing in the power of experimentation and synergy between various arts, in 2021, with its second edition, the International Portrait Film Festival (IPFF) creates a competition module for photographic portraits. The experiment will be open to photography projects by professionals and amateurs from around the world. The selected best photo portraits will be part of an exhibition during the festival events of IPFF 2021.

One of all the selected photographs will be awarded as a winner and will become a starting point for experimental transformations - in a virtual art incubator it will be an inspiration for subsequent discussions and creations in various arts and fields.

Categories:

Portrait of a lady (a portrait from another historical time, past or future)

Portrait of a lady on fire (a queer portrait)

Portrait in sepia (a monochrome or black&white portrait)

The picture of Dorian Gray (a very beautiful portrait or a portrait-grotesque)

Portrait of the artist as a young man (a surreal portrait)

Self-portrait with ear and pipe (a self-portrait of the photographer)

Prize summary: 
Cash prize - the awarded photographer receives a cash prize - 50% of the prize fund.

Selection and evaluation

From all the submitted applications, the IPFF team and the jury of the contest will select the best 24 photos, which will be published on the platforms of the festival and will participate in an exhibition (digital & print versions) within the second edition of IPFF in November 2021.

The jury of the competition will distinguish ONE best work from the selected photographs.

Awards and prizes

The best work is given the opportunity to participate in a creative incubator "Portrait Pathways". The creative incubator is a virtual space that allows artists and photography lovers, through their comments, to share impressions, opinions, as well as to generate narratives, whose starting point is this one selected photograph. The aim of the process is an enriching accumulation of ideas, outlining a new, longer and unexpected life of the work, as well as popularizing the artist within a different context.

Cash prize - the awarded photographer also receives a cash prize - 50% of the prize fund. The prize fund is formed by the paid participation fees. The amount raised is distributed as follows:
50% for a prize for the best work;
50% for costs and development of the photo contest.

All authors of selected photographs will receive a specialized digital diploma.
