Feeling Italian Photography Competition

AwardsSIETAR Italia’s “Feeling Italian” photography contest invites you to tell, through the photographic language, what it means to “feel Italian” today, in an Italy defined by deep changes, not only in demographic terms, but also in terms of behaviors, customs and values. Through the photo contest, SIETAR Italia project want to explore who the Italians are today.

  • What are the behaviors and symbols that evoke “Italianness”?
  • What are the places, the ways and the meeting situations?
  • What are the activities and rituals – individual or collective – that allow us to perceive Italians, or to be perceived as Italians?

The “Feeling Italian” photographic competition wants to investigate the elements of continuity with the past, or with the traditional concepts related to Italianness and to feeling Italian; but also, and above all, the transformations taking place in an Italy that is evolving within a global context.

CULTURAL SNAPSHOT landscape observatory

– First Prize 500€
– Second Prize 300€
– Third Prize 200

“A journey into the world of knowledge of our cultural heritage and traditions with the support of the photograph. A «book on the world» to establish an intercultural dialogue where each photographer/author becomes narrator of his daily life scrutinized, analyzed and described in all its many historical and evolutionary aspects. The pictures tell what we were and what we are: historic monuments, people, art, landscape, music, entertainment and local traditions. Through the photographs will be possible to strengthen the dialogue between peoples, all supported by a unique form of language: the emotion. So the images become the universal language of the «book on the world». All this will be part of baggage in the long path of life that every individual will always bring with him and that will fill each day with new and interesting emotions.” –Olimpia Niglio, Professor of Architectural Conservation, Kyoto University
