Athens Photo Inspirations ’13
Technopolis Gazi |

Athens Photo Inspiration, the biggest photography contest in Greece, is organized by the Hellenic Centre for Photography for the sixth consecutive year, on Sunday 10 November 2013, in the framework of the Athens Photo Festival 2013.

The event constitutes an original cultural initiative, with a competitive character, which seeks to stimulate both involvement in social issues and appreciation for photography.

Contestants starting from the centre of Athens and using photography as a common language are encouraged to participate in a “photo marathon”, to interact and to express themselves, by recording through their own lens and within six hours, four given subjects inspired by the urban life and its experience. Technical knowledge of the camera is not a prerequisite for participation, but inspiration and desire for creativity are.

Peak of this year’s event is a special exhibition, presenting the prize-winning photos that will be awarded by the audience and the judging committee.
