    Visible White Photo Prize was founded to support international photographers who engage creatively with what is moving personal, social and political issues today.

    This edition invites artists to reflect on the theme "In Conflict". New manias collide nations and peoples in an ever more forceful social and political potential for conflict, with unforeseen effects on personal and public behaviour.

    Single works and Projects can be in digital or analogue photography, or computer graphic modelling, software art, digital manipulations, polaroids, mobile phone photographs or images taken with any other photographic devices, presented in a two-dimensional format. Works should be presented as art photography in any form which could include photographic essays, personal stories in the style of storytelling, fictional narratives, documentary work, photojournalism or set pieces.

    It is possible to participate as an individual or as a group. Photographic images included in projects must have been taken within the last 10 years. There are no limits to the size of works submitted (but it is suggested at least 2,500 pixels on the longest side). Images submitted to the prize are uploaded online in JPG or PNG formats from applicants' personal accounts in Celeste Network.

    Artists retain copyright of all works they upload.

    Entry fee:
    20 Euro single photo, for additional single photos 15 Euro.
    50 Euro project (up to 10 single images) for additional projects 40 Euro.
