However, the organizing company reserves the right to extend this deadline for no more than 3 months at its sole discretion.

The material submitted by contest participants will not be returned but will remain fully available to the organizing company.

Article 5 – Jury and evaluation parameters

The photographs will be evaluated by a technical jury of two people, consisting of communication, promotion, art, and image professionals. If one of the jurors is unable to participate due to unforeseen circumstances, they will be replaced by another equally competent technical juror, and this will be promptly announced on the contest’s website.

Both during the collection of photographs and during the evaluation, the jury will act in good faith, respecting the confidentiality of the information provided by the participants and adhering to professional best practices.

The jury’s evaluations will be based on the following parameters/concepts: creativity, originality, sympathy, iconographic quality, and adherence to the contest theme. In particular, shots with typical elements of the participant’s city and/or nation (e.g., a photograph with a cup and the Eiffel Tower) will be valued. It should be noted that, as the contest is open to non-professional photographers, the quality of the shot will be given less weight than the aforementioned parameters. The jury’s decision is final.

The jury reserves the right to reject images that are presumed to have caused any damage and/or offense or are otherwise incongruous with the contest’s themes and purposes. The jury’s decision on the non-admission of entries is final.
