13th Salon Daguerre Digital Photography Show submissions open March 1st, 2020
Fans, enthusiasts, image collectors, we are happy to tell you that preparations for the next Salon Daguerre are under way. Like spring, it returns in 2020, carefully prepared by the 'Photoclub Paris Val-de-Bièvre'.
The previous edition had hosted more than 6,500 digital photos from 50 different countries. A fantastic photographic trip going from the United States to China and rewarding individual person as well as photo clubs. This year, the Show will open its doors on March 1, then you will be able to submit your photos on the website www.salondaguerre.paris until May 9th. FIAP, PSA and FPF sponsorships are currently in process of validation. Pending it, here is as a preview - the themes of this 13th digital edition Salon Daguerre contest:
The image illustrates a ritual, a party, a celebration, a sports, cultural or social event and is dominated by jubilation or joy. It captures the excitement of a moment, the joyful dynamics of a group, the positive energy created and carried by a group. The image highlights an atmosphere, gaiety and cohesion shared by a community of individuals at a given moment. The presence of these individuals may be explicit or simply suggested. Images representing political events are not accepted.
Water should be the subject or one of the main subjects of the image. Flowing, stagnant, unfurling water! The photographs can be taken in a natural environment that is either rural or urban. They could represent obvious spaces, such as the seaside, a river, a lake or a pond, or more unexpected scenes, such as a simple pool or even an aquarium. Water should be shown in its liquid form (no snow, no steam, no ice).
Creating the illusion of a three-dimensional world with two-dimensional photos is no small challenge. You can use vanishing lines, high- or low-angle shots, scale variations as well as any natural or artificial means based on line geometry to give your images a sense of depth, dimension, and graphic impact.
open monochrome as well as open color are both accepted
