The theme is “The bicycle and mankind” and participation is free and open to either professionals or amateurs. The Competition’s aim is to pinpoint, through an original picture, the relationship that links the bicycle to mankind in varying situations. Every competitor may submit a maximum of three photographs – by and no later than 12:00 (Italian time) on 24th February 2019 either by email to the email address of the Association Aeneis 2000 or by ordinary post on a CD-ROM (to the address of the Town Council of San Vito dei Normanni, Brindisi, Italy). The photographs may be in colour or in black and white and should be assigned a title in English. The jpg format should be at least 300dpi, such as to allow printing at 50×70 cm. An examining committee will assess the submitted works for admission to the final. The works will not be returned and will be kept by the Association Aeneis 2000, which retains the rights to only publish or display them for the scheduled aims of the Competition and guarantees always to cite the photographer. The 24 winning photographs will be selected, according to the unquestionable judgement of the committee that is not open to appeal. One of the 24 will be judged and awarded a special merit. All the photographs admitted to the final, will be displayed on the 12th May 2019 in an exhibition that will take place at the former Dominican Cloister of San Vito dei Normanni (Brindisi Province of Italy). This competition will be part of the international programme of events named FULL BIKE DAY: THE BICYCLE IN ALL ITS ARTISTIC FORMS, and in other national and international locations.
