Block Notes Photo Contest

A personal geography

10 APRIL TO 7 MAY 2023

Four weeks, one theme per week, to explore the world around you using your camera.

The Lake Garda Block Notes Photo Contest 2023 invites you to trace "A personal geography" by capturing a reality that goes from being individual to public.

Photographs can be taken anywhere; they don't need to be related to Sirmione or Lake Garda.

4 weeks 
4 dimensions of yourself

The Block Notes Photo Contest is divided into four weekly sessions, it is open to everyone and participation is free. 

For each of the four weeks, every participant can submit a photograph referring to a specific spatial, social and existential dimension: the intimate and individual aspect becomes more public and collective.

The photographer can portray himself, his home, his neighbourhood and his town or city through pictures depicting people, spaces, objects or animals, by entering one photograph per week, to be submitted by 23:59 on Sunday.
