The Spirit of Place and Cultural Diversity - Photographic Award
Accademia Apulia UK is proud to present Genius Loci, the international Photographic Prize aimed at promoting emerging photographers of all nationalities based in the United Kingdom and in Italy. The prize aims to foster stronger cultural links between the two countries through the Arts.
A distinguished jury of their peers will select the photographers who best interpret and explore the relationship between the spirit of place and cultural diversity. Based upon these recommendations, the Jury will reconvene to evaluate the candidates’ folders and bestow the prize accordingly, on 20 November 2010. The award ceremony is planned for Friday, 11 February 2011 at the Royal Horseguards, 1 Whitehall Place, London SW1, in the presence of the Jury and Committee of Accademia Apulia.
There are no fees to enter the competition. The winner will be awarded a cheque for £ 1,000.00
