Theme: First Date               

Each of us experiences some kind of feeling when that moment comes in life - a first date. What place would you personally choose to do it?  Maybe a contemporary art gallery, or even cooler if they're doing a brand new, unconventional project with an opening and an apero and a DJ set. Or will you invite your partner to listen to a show and listen to an original musical performance of your favorite songs?  Or just classically go to a cafe and eat ice cream together? We have a solution-it can all be combined together!

You can be a part of our event and participate it!

We are looking for talents who can sincerely convey a sense of anticipation, excitement and the very feeling

in the very place of the 1st date. Send in your best images, abstracts, portraits, landscape it all depends on your personal rich imagination! 

The winners will be announced on 22th August 2022.

Selection process 

When we receive your images, we will start the judging process.

The selection will take place online "blind. " We gather professionals of different cultural activities from several countries for online voting.

We will send notifications to the finalists by email. In addition, the list will be published on the website and websites of the Event partners.
