This contest is different from what we have been doing up to now. The chosen works will appear in a virtual exhibition and artists will have the opportunity to sell their photographs to a wide, international audience. Blank Wall Gallery does not take any commission from the sales. Finally there are three important cash awards and many other important benefits for the participants.
The submission of photos for the specific contest is free. Each photographer can participate with up to 5 files.
All photographers, amateurs and professionals who are over 18, are eligible to participate to the contest.
The artists who will be chosen to be presented at the web page of Blank Wall Gallery and be eligible to claim the €1,000 award in cash, will have to pay a participation fee of €35.
(The payment can be made via debit and credit cards)
This way, only the photographers who will participate in the voting process for the cash award, will pay a small fee. All the other artist who will submit their work and are not selected will not be charged.
The photographers who will be selected and will pay the participation fee will be 120 – 180. They will be the ones who will take part in the voting process and they will be able to vote and be voted for the cash award.
The difference of this contest compared to all the others, is that the number of the photographers who claim the award is very small (120 – 180), while in other contests the selection of the winner is among thousands of participants.
One or two days later all participants will receive an email by the Gallery which will ask for them to vote for the photographs they like. (They can vote for as many photographs as they wish).
Each artist can vote only once, that is why we are going to use a Google application which will not permit them to vote again.
As soon as the voting process is completed by all artists the winners who will share the €1,000 will be announced.
