The portfolio reviews offer the possibility to show your work to national and international photo editors and experts in the field, who will be guests of Cortona On The Move.
This year we are pleased to introduce the first VISURA PORTFOLIO PRIZE.
With this new initiative, a jury composed by all the reviewers present in Cortona and presided over by Scott Thode, editorial director of VISURA.co, will choose the best five works presented during the 2017 edition of portfolio reviews in Cortona and will reward their authors by including them on the celebrated platform. The top author will be given a Prime membership, while the 4 runners up will each receive a Plus membership.
All participants will receive a 50% discount to Visura's Prime membership.
Cortona On The Move is at its 7th edition this year. To honour the path we have taken, we want to give new life to our call for submissions. We have partnered with LensCulture to create a free open call that seeks to attract original documentary works from all over the world.
We are looking for work that will amaze us.
New Visions stands for the quest for the ever-changing grammar of photography. As a language, photography is in continuous flux and it needs to adapt to the changes in society and culture in order to keep communicating a strong message and to offer new emotions.
In the new spirit of “on the move”, we will value the originality of style and language with which the works have been conceived and created. Concept and execution go hand in hand, and the output should strive, like a lingua franca, to reach a broad audience.
We are seeking documentary works that are conceived with an honest intention and do not fear experimentation.
Now into its seventh edition, Cortona On The Move international photography festival will be hosting some of the world's leading photographers, from grand masters to young talents, in a full program of exhibitions, events and portfolio reviews by experts, plus some exciting new initiatives.
Photography exhibitions and related events will enliven the historic Tuscan hilltown of Cortona - a renowned center of arts and culture - transforming it into a grand showcase of contemporary photography.
Visitors to the town will be able to see hundreds of images while pondering the issues of our time and discovering more about the world we live in - and probably about themselves as well. The images will be displayed in some of the town's most suggestive and atmospheric locations which are exclusively opened up for the duration of the festival.
