Second year of Formentera Sports Photo contest

ja arribas 1er premiThe Formentera Council Office of Sport has announced a November 25 deadline for submissions to Concurs de Fotografia Esportiva, a sports photo contest now in its second year. Submissions will be accepted in person at the Citizen Information Office (OAC), by certified post and online, by contacting fotografiaesportiva@conselldeformentera.cat. Sports councillor Jordi Vidal explained that email submissions —a first this year— “are intended to make it easier for photographers to share their work with us”.

In Vidal's words, the contest was created as a way to “show sport in a different way and encourage people, through photos, to get active”. Photos should be essentially sports-related or be somehow related to a facet of sport. Three prizes —first place, €300; second, €200 and third, €100— will be awarded.

Conditions of entry
Three photos maximum will be accepted per person. Photos must be original submissions and must not be entered in any other competitions. The image can be in colour or black and white. Physical prints must be on paper and unframed with a minimum width of 20 cm and a maximum height of 40 cm. Formats include square, digital, classic and panorama. Online submissions must meet the following requirements: photos must be saved as .jpg files no larger than 8 Mb. In the digital category photos can feature modified tone, saturation, light, contrast, levels and curves, but no other editing is permitted.

Paper submissions will be accepted at the Citizen Information Office (OAC), carrer de Ramon Llull, 6, and must include an envelope with the photographer's full name, address, email and a telephone number.

Photos will also be accepted via certified post sent to Consell Insular de Formentera, plaça de la Constitució, 1, 07860 Sant Francesc Xavier, Formentera. Such submissions should include a similarly marked envelope and a pseudonym for identification purposes.

Online submissions must be sent to fotografiaesportiva@conselldeformentera.cat with the following information: applicant's full name, email address, telephone number and town.

On all photos, contestants are asked to include a title as well as mention of the place and date it was taken. A jury of individuals with experience in visual arts will select the winning photos and awarded recipients will be announced in early December. The photos will be displayed at the Antoni Blanc sports centre.
