About
Our seasonal photography contests are held to improve the quality of art. In each season, we choose different genres and you can participate in them.
Creating a work of art has at least two purposes. One is to satisfy the inner sense of the creator of the work and the other is to be seen. Every year, many exhibitions and competitions are held all over the world, and as photographers, every time we participate in one of these events, we present our inner sense and also compete with others. To know if we are close to our mental goal or not. The value of a work is not ultimately about winning, but it can guide us to be better.

PSA

An image is considered to be Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of grey which can include pure black and pure white) OR it gives the impression of being a greyscale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example, by sepia, red, gold, etc.) A greyscale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be classified as a Color Work.
Attention is drawn to the PSA Statement on Subject Matter which applies to all sections.
