Photo competition launched for Paphos installation

Photographers from around the world are invited to submit photographs for an annual competition in Paphos that aims to exhibit large pictures in outdoor public spaces.

Organised by the Paphos branch of The Cyprus Photographic Society, The Wall 2019 event will see 30 winning entries, taken anywhere in the world, covering a wall in Paphos city centre and projected at events around the island.

The photo installation will remain in place for 11 months and is expected to be visited by more than 40,000 people.

Participants may send up to five colour photographs to the competition (landscape orientation only) and the theme can be either urban or street photography. The deadline for entries is 23:59 (GMT), May 31, 2019.

“The position and duration of the exhibition maximises the visibility of the photos and will be seen by more than 40,000 people. The cost of printing, mounting and installation is covered by the organisers,” the Paphos photographic society announced.

Information about the artist and contact info will be also displayed.

The top 60 photos will be projected at several events in the main cities of Cyprus.

The photos will be assessed by an international committee.

To participate, photographers may either send in two photos for a €10 total, or submit five photos for €15. Each photographer can participate with up to five photographs.

The opening of the installation/exhibition will be held on June 28.
