Happiness ONTHEMOVE Award 2021

The Happiness ONTHEMOVE Award is promoted by the international visual narrative festival Cortona On The Move, in a first-ever collaboration with the Wine Consortium of Cortona.

“We Are Humans” is the central theme of the 2021 edition of Cortona On The Move, a collective narrative of our very being as humans in which the sharing of emotions through images will play a leading role. In 2021, Happiness takes on a special meaning, based on intimacy, hope and visions for the future. The challenge we propose to professional and emerging photographers is to document what happiness means in this historical contingency. A theme to be interpreted through one’s own vision, creativity, and sensitivity, to be developed in its complexities.

The jury of the award will work exclusively online and is composed of professionals and experts in the field.

Elena Boille – Deputy Editor and Photo Editor Internazionale
