For the fourth year, UNISCAPE organised the International Photo Contest "People's Landscapes" open to all students of European Universities from 18 to 35 years old.

The aim of the contest is to encourage students to observe landscapes through the eyes of people in order to express how each one of us sees and perceives our landscapes by capturing the soul and the transitory identity of places, in particular of the degraded and everyday landscapes.


 

 

 

Aim of the contest

The aim of the contest is to encourage students to observe landscapes through the eyes of people in order to express how each one of us sees and perceives our landscapes by capturing the soul and the transitory identity of places, in particular of the degraded and everyday landscapes.

The images must express the approach of the European Landscape Convention to landscape as: “an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors”.

The images will become part of Uniscape’s photographic archive and can be used in UNISCAPE’s promotional materials (website, leaflets, publications, etc.) and by UNISCAPE's members.


Participation


There is no entry fee.

The participation to the contest is open to all students from 18 to 35 years old attending any pan-European University.

The participants must be the original authors of all the photographic material submitted in their name.

In submitting a photo to Uniscape, all students grant permission for its unlimited use for activities under the auspices of Uniscape, without any remuneration being due.

Each participant guarantees that to the best of his/her knowledge no third party can claim rights or raise objections regarding the publication/reproduction/distribution of the material submitted.

 

The deadline for submitting entries is the 30th of October 2013 by sending the images and the participation form to this e-mail: peopleslandscapes@uniscape.eu



The contest is divided into three sections:

Neglected landscapes:


Signs, insertions, extractions, modifications effect the state of the landscape. Time and diverse economic and cultural interests  create the places of accumulation or anthroposages, the stratifications, structures and the final images are often illegible.
Neglected, cut out from the main circuits of interest  and marginalised, these places are in suspension, as if they were  waiting ... while  oblivion, consumption and lack of care hide signs for new resources and dynamics of a "déjà there" (Derrida) . How can we reveal the potential of abandonment? What are the signs of a latent vitality?
How to seize the evidence, the issues and the dynamics of unstable equilibrium states which tend already to new forms of existence?
Oblivion: a freeze-frame "space-time" which offers new hope to become ...?
       
Globalized landscapes:


To speak about landscape means to recognize the memory of a place, its' lari ', read the signs that over time have been left by the joint action of man and nature, which has given created identitary heritages in which we can recognise ourselves. Today, on the contrary we are used to not look at the landscape that surrounds us, a landscape increasingly subject to sudden changes, which invest it according to logics based on uniformity, profit and productivity. Technology has accelerated the transformation process, making the speed and rapidity of the changes part of our culture according to the phenomenon of globalization, which unifies and trivializes the landscape, from the urban to the rural. Landscape becomes a space of the world, a scenario that repeats itself several times.

Light in Landscapes:



Wave and corpuscle, light is not only what makes life possible on our planet..... but light makes also perception of each landscape possible....and more than this, it confers a specific atmosphere, due transparencies, inflections, nuances, reflections. Sunlight, moonlight, water reflections, clouds, shadows, winds, make each moment of the day, each season of the year different.
Thanks to sunlight, moonlight and some time even artificial light each landscape is never perceived in the same way, it is shrouded in an Arcadian atmosphere, becoming alive and unique, full of vibration, giving emotions and earning space in our mind, in our heart, in ourself.
