Take part in a pan-European call for digital photographers and audio-visual creators. The contest is part of the project Parallel Traces. It is a cross-cutting, collaborative, cross-European project that aims to discover and unearth lost traces of the Jewish cultural heritage in urban architecture and planning in Europe.
5.000€ will be awarded to the creators of best submitted artworks and a maximum of twenty of the creations will be shown all over Europe. Five cities take part in the project (Girona, Wroclaw, Tbilisi, and Belgrade) and the competition is all about visual representations from an out of ordinary point of view of what remains of the Jewish Heritage in the urban tissue of these five cities.
The contest emphasises the Jewish Heritage in architecture and urbanism. Thus, the competition and project want to support the creation of contemporary digital artworks in order to showcase common elements that bring closer together citizens with Jewish and non-Jewish descent and culture and to demonstrate that Jewish culture is part of our common home.
Deadline for submissions is June 26th. Find all the information on how to submit the artwork here.
The project is initiated by the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ).
