International Photo Competion People's Landscapes

UNISCAPE the Network of Universities especially dedicated to the implementation of the European Landscape Convention. Aim of UNISCAPE is to support and reinforce interdisciplinary co-operation within and among European universities regarding landscape issues, especially in the areas of research and education. UNISCAPE thereby promotes the principles and the objectives of the Florence Convention

organises the International Photo Contest People's Landscapes, open to all students of the Member Universities of UNISCAPE from 18 to 35 years old.

The aim of the contest is to encourage students to observe landscapes through the eyes of people in order to express how each one of us sees and perceives our landscapes by capturing the soul and the transitory identity of places, in particular of the degraded and everyday landscapes.

The participation to the contest is open to all students of the Member Universities of Uniscape from 18 to 35 years old. Each student can participate with a maximum of three digital images in colour or in black and white. The images must express the approach of the European Landscape Convention to landscape as: “an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors”. Therefore, they may concern natural, rural, urban and peri-urban areas, including inland water and marine areas, but also those landscapes that might be considered outstanding as well as everyday or degraded landscapes. The images must reflect the point of view of the observer with regard to the represented landscape and prove the importance and the influence of the place on the observer himself.

The overall winner of the People’s Landscapes International photographic contest will be the student with the best image, as determined by the Jury. The winner will be awarded with a 1000 euro prize and his/her images will be published on UNISCAPE’s website. During the award ceremony, an exhibition of the best photos selected by the jury will be organized. The selected images will become part of UNISCAPE’s photographic archive and will be used for the principal banner of the UNISCAPE website.

The deadline for submitting entries is the 1 of April 2010 by sending the images and the participation form to this e-mail:〈=en&tit=People
