The aim of the Contest is to select the most interesting projects which will be presented in the Contest Programme of the 5th International Festival of Analog Photography Lovers – VINTAGE PHOTO FESTIVAL.
Photographs submitted for the Contest must be made in photographic techniques such as: photography from film, photography from membrane, polaroid, camera obscura etc., noble and analog techniques including daguerreotype, wet collodion plate, calotype, kallitype, cyanotype, anthotype, platinotype, palladotype or digital techniques but subjected to such processes (treatment) so that their final version is related to noble techniques (e.g. through Instagram application) and so has the “vintage” look.
