3rd international salon of photography Drone&astrophotography 2021 is a young, growing project, connecting worldwide photographers; a huge celebration of life, Earth and the universe!
Three themes available for participation:
- AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY is a fast growing genre of photography, due to the huge worldwide community of drone photographers, who in fact lack the opportunities to showcase their work and present the beauty of our planet from above. It is the main theme of exhibition, divided into two sections: colour and black&white. It is not necessarily drone photography that comes into account – photographs from above can be taken from whatever aerial standpoint (airplane, skyscraper, viaduct,…).
- ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY theme seeks best views into the secrets of the universe. In connection to Center of Space Technologies CENTER NOORDUNG (NOORDUNG), where the exhibition of awarded works will be held, we’re looking forward to the amazing images of deep space object, astronomical events, views from our planet etc.
- FREE THEME is open for anybody. We search for individual creativity on any subject. Be it portraits, landscapes, macros, street, creative etc. Each part of the work has to originate as photography, no matter if manipulated or not.
Awarded works will be exhibited in Center Noordung outstanding ambient as 70×50 cm prints. The best author will be showcased in Digital Camera Slovenia magazine (printed and digital version).
More information on how to participate:
Because all the works are judged by internationally recognised jury anonymously, we can not yet reveal the most interesting photos that were already submitted this year. We can confirm, though, that we have participants from all over the globe. Last day to participate is the last day of 2021. Welcome amateurs, professionals, specialists, artists…
