The “Colours of Orthodoxy” photo contest promotes Greece this year. The best photos will be exhibited and selected for the album “Colours of Orthodoxy. Greece”, to be published by the Polish Orthodox Church.
Photo submissions are accepted until July 8, in the following categories: Places, Reportage, People, and Details. Participants are welcome to submit up to six photographs per category.
Attention: Only photographs depicting places of worship belonging to mutually recognised canonical Eastern Orthodox Churches will be accepted for upload/competition. Photos that are likely to present, create or develop tensions will be automatically rejected, warn the organizers. Also, the project does not concern Holy Mount Athos.
The contest will be judged by an international panel of experts – among them, Aurelian Iftimiu, Patriarchal adviser to Patriarch Daniel of Romania and the head of the Basilica News Agency of the Romanian Patriarchate.
The competition is open to all professional and amateur photographers from around the world. Participation in the competition is free. Organisers reserve the right to extend the duration of the competition.
The project “Colours of Orthodoxy” has been carried out for 12 years and each year is dedicated to a different country: up to now, Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Finland, Georgia, Poland, Russia, Romania, Serbia and the Holy Land.
11 albums were published and many exhibitions were presented in 16 countries around the world.
