The Wall by MoPP

The Cyprus Photographic Society, Pafos Branch is bringing back their contest, The Wall, as part of the Months Of Photography Paphos program. And, once again, the winning submissions will be featured in the center of Paphos, a 2017 European Capital of Culture!

The goal of The Wall is to exhibit large pictures in an outdoor public space. This is realized by the showing of 30 winning images on a wall in the city center at an eye-catching 53cm x 80cm each! The photos will be printed and installed for outdoor exposure and remain on exhibit for six months. Deadline for submission is May 2. Complete rules and guidelines can be found at www.cpspafos.com . Photographers from Cyprus and abroad are encouraged to submit.

We’ve mentioned the fantastic Months of Photography Pafos program here at Streethunters previously. Sponsored by the Cyprus Photographic Society, Pafos Branch, the program hosts an engaging and educational series of events for all photographers and for all ages. Included are various workshops, exhibitions, seminars and film screenings, and most are at a low cost or free! The three-month long program is seeking to establish itself as an international photography festival comparable with others, and it appears to be on it’s way to doing so in Cyprus’ beautiful Paphos, a 2017 European Capital of Culture.

Months of Photography Paphos Public Art 2017

You may recall us talking about the Months Of Photography Paphos programs here last year. Well the highly interactive, educational and successful event is back for another run in 2017! The Public Art call for entries was announced here just a few weeks ago, but the official program is now in our hands and it is packed with another schedule of great activities and events! And, once again, all of them are at a low cost or free!

The purpose of the program is to offer quality events around the photographic art for three months and establish itself as an international photography festival comparable with others. MoPP says it’s specific objectives are to:

  • offer to the public of Cyprus quality events about photography,
  • provide an opportunity for Cypriots and other photographers to be trained,
  • build a communication and collaboration platform for Cypriot photographers with their colleagues abroad and between cultural operators,
  • accommodate new trends in artistic photography,
  • and to promote the art of photography.
