PHODAR Series Awards 2021

ENTER CONTEST

Photography contest 2021: PHODAR BIENNIAL is pleased to announce an open call for its 11th Edition! Topic “ТODAY IS TOMORROW'S YESTERDAY”. We believe this topic will inspire not only the artistic abilities of our photographers, their humanistic and critical potential, but also the previously mentioned sense of history and the ability to distinguish the important from the mundane, what truly matters from mere sensationalism, what has a bearing on our society from what is appealing just on the surface, so that we may send an adequate message to the people who will inherit us. A message that will aid our descendants in understanding what obstacles we have overcome and what sort of values we, their ancestors, have.
