Capture an Italian Moment Photo Contest

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

In 2007 Accenti launched the “Capture an Italian Moment” Photo Contest, originally offering a $1000 top prize and publication. Second and third place winners received $250 and $100 respectively. The photo contest built on the popularity of the Accenti Writing Contest, which was launched in 2005 and invited submissions for original and unpublished prose texts (short stories, nonfiction, creative nonfiction). As of 2018, the photo contest, like the writing contest, offers a $1000 top prize and three runner-up prizes of $100. These two very popular initiatives together generate hundreds of entries each year, attracting many established professionals as well as emerging artists whose exposure through Accenti has helped them build on their artistic profile. Since their inception, the Accenti contests have awarded over $25,000 in prizes to worthy writers and photographers. The Accenti contests were suspended in 2015, but were resumed in 2018.

The Contest seeks candidates who believe they have captured a significant Italian moment. To enter, applicants must fill out an entry form. All entrants are granted a vote in the Popular Vote category from among the finalists. Details available at https://accenti.ca/photo-contest/enter/
