How it works:

Submit your photos (max 5 per person) before the deadline, using the registration form.

Every submitted photo will be printed, exhibited and able to collect votes during the exhibition.

A panel of Geneva Photo Club instructors will select 50 best photos from your submissions. These photos will be printed bigger (30cm x 45cm), glued on Dibond for hanging and will be offered for sale in the gallery during the exhibition.

The remaining photos will also be printed in smaller size and exhibited in the gallery (exact size and execution will depend on the number of submissions).

During the exhibition, visitors will be able to vote for their top 3 photos from any of the submissions.

Top 5 photos chosen by these votes (1 jury and 4 public) will receive fantastic rewards from our sponsors during the closing party of the exhibition.
