Our contest is not about photoprojects that cater to the existing general demand. It’s about discovering new ways to tell a story using the means and tools of photography. We encourage artistic freedom and diversity therefore we don’t impose time constraints upon our participants. We do not limit them in their choices of subjects and creativity methods.


This year, member of Magnum Photos Antoine d'Agata (Paris), YET Magazine editor-in-chief Salvatore Vitale (Zurich), member of the Unseen advisory committee Emilia van Lynden (Amsterdam), artist Ola Lanko (Amsterdam), photographers Dmitry Kostyukov (Paris) and Vlad Sokhin (Chiang Mai) are on the panel of judges.
