The Malta Photographic Society launched the 56th National Photography Competition and Exhibition.
This competition is considered to be the pinnacle of photography competition on the Maltese Islands and many local photography enthusiasts look forward to this annual event.
Entrants may submit up to four images in any of the four categories, namely color and monochrome prints and / or color and monochrome digital projected images. The subject is open.
The closing date is September 25. Judging is scheduled for mid-October and all accepted works will be exhibited at Palazzo De La Salle, Republic Street, Valletta, between December 9 and 23.
The Malta Photographic Society has been the catalyst for the uninterrupted organization of this national photography competition for the past 55 years.
The association, run by volunteers, is aimed at anyone interested in practicing the art of photography. Since its founding 60 years ago, its mission has always been to teach and promote the practice and appreciation of all forms of photography, to spread the word that photography is fun, and to help others to advance their photographic skills.
The company enjoys the esteem of the highest authorities on the island and is often called upon to collaborate and provide its expertise to several established organizations that wish to organize their own photographic exhibitions.
Photographers interested in participating must submit their work to the club, 137, Old Bakery Street, Valletta by September 25 at 2 p.m.
