Happiness ONTHEMOVE 2018

The 7th edition of our Happiness ONTHEMOVE contest

Submit

As with all previous editions, the 7th edition of our Happiness ONTHEMOVE contest, partnered with Consorzio Vino Chianti, features happiness as its central theme.

Development of the theme is left to your own personal vision, creativity and sensitivity. Photographers are asked to reflect upon the theme, avoiding a purely literal interpretation, and developing the multifaceted sides of the concept. Happiness is a choice. It can be a fully articulated story, or it can be something internal, sometimes subtle and not always self-evident. It depends entirely on the experience of each individual.

Happiness is suspension, surprise, a story that resonates inside you, often for no reason whatsoever. Happiness is action, it is stillness, it can be just a look, or maybe an entire lifetime. We’re not looking for easy smiles or stereotyped images. We want to see true happiness in your stories.

The aim of the ONTHEMOVE international prize is to amaze the jury with a tale of unexpected, astonishing happiness. Participants are invited to submit works that develop the general theme of the contest in an original manner.

The winner of Happiness ONTHEMOVE will receive a prize of 3,000 euros plus exhibition space in the subsequent edition of Cortona On The Move, in 2019. The winning project will be awarded and projected on the evening dedicated to projections during the inauguration period of COTM 2018.
