Romanticism has long been associated with the landscape. In photography, the romantic nature of the landscape often features its spirit in full bloom. It is typically very hard to categorise. At times its very nature is uncontrollable, and often unpredictable, while at other times, it possesses a quiet and sensual power that manifests its nature in stunningly beautiful vistas. Sometimes the romantic landscape may feature people or animals in the landscape, while at other times, its landscape will be desolate and bereft of life. The most notable feature of the romantic landscape photograph is that it will inspire imaginations, and stir strong feelings in its audience.
Photographers are being asked to create single images that engage their vision of the romantic nature of the landscape that surrounds them. Across the globe, countries name their seasons differently, and some also vary the starting date of their seasons. The purpose of the Romantic Landscape is to extend our understanding of what contemporary landscapes look like across our world today. For that reason, the seasons will not be named, nor will the regular convention per country be used as a starting date for entries into The Romantic Landscape.
Professional, emerging and student photographers may enter The Romantic Landscape. To entry details please follow this link: http://www.theworldfamily.net/the-world-landscape
Three photographers whose image best demonstrates photographic excellence, and shows they have engaged deeply with the theme of romantic landscape, will be awarded a cash award. A further 22 photographers works will receive honourable mentions.
ONLINE EXHIBITION AND BOOK PUBLICATION
In addition to the three photographers awarded a cash award, a further 22 photographers images will be selected for an online exhibition, and will be featured in the yearly book publication that will be a culmination of nature's four seasons from across the World.
With selection for this exhibition, the featured photographers work will be seen by an international audience of collectors, curators, art consultants, and other advocates of fine art and social documentary photography. Each participant will be included in the FIER Institute's Online Gallery Exhibition as well as published in the Picturing the World Family Portfolio Book Series.
The images are judged anonymously. The Juror for this submission season is Penelope Beveridge.
The exhibition is open to all photographers world wide, both professional and amateur. FIER Institute invites photographers working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought to participate.
