Photography Contest: “Rediscovering the city landscape”

Purpose

The City Council of Seville is promoting the international congress “Water, Landscape and Citizenship”. One of the activities programmed is this photography contest. Under the title “Rediscovering the city landscape”, it intends/has as its main objective to enhance citizen participation.

This initiative is a call to represent in images the views of the ordinary citizen. The idea is to find out how do urban dwellers perceive all matters related to water in their different manifestations. Thus, it is essential that the pictures entering the contest reflect the presence of three elements: water, green areas and people.

Therefore, we want citizens to take some time to think about the city or the environment where they live. It is an invitation to reflect and take time to look at the surrounding landscape. To this end, they shall focus on everyday-life elements whose importance we tend to overlook, such as Roman engineering works, green areas, our Guadalquivir River, etc. Nevertheless, this must always incorporate the city’s inhabitants, which at the end of the day are the moving soul of our city.

The message that is conveyed rather than the technical quality will be valued and the presence of the above-mentioned elements is a condition to be taken into account. However, this does not exclude the original take, the novel perspective, angles undiscovered before, in which individuals, the inhabitants, are the true protagonists and must be reflected in it. The addition of all these visions will help us to now the feelings of citizens about water in the landscape, the theme and reason for this activity.

Scope of the call. Participants

Citizens, water and green areas must appear together and the images must be taken in urban areas. Therefore, pictures of natural scenarios such as high value environmental areas, farming areas or scattered population areas are excluded.
