The Parallel Traces Call is now open! Entries can be submitted until July 17th, 2019.

The competition is open to digital photographers and audiovisual creators of legal age who are residents of any European country.

The contest is focused on architecture, urbanism and, specifically, on visual representations from an out of ordinary point of view of whatever remains of Jewish Heritage in the urban tissue of the five participating cities: Girona, Wroclaw, Tbilisi, Sighet and Belgrade.

The pan-European open call aims to:

  • Generate a contemporary artwork in digital format
  • Showcase common elements that bring closer together citizens with Jewish and non-Jewish descent and culture
  • Show that Jewish culture is part of our common home, Europe, and the traces belonging to a Jewish past are still alive in our everyday life
  • Get a better understanding of the past

A total amount of 5000 will be awarded to the authors of the most striking artworks in the different categories and up to 20 creations will be exhibited in the participant countries.

The Jury is formed by 12 members active in the field of Jewish Heritage and photography/audiovisual. All the members will evaluate and rate the works that will be submitted, based on the established criteria: originality, excellence of execution and overall impact.

More information about the project objectives and the general submission guidelines can be found on the website at https://paralleltraces.eu/.
