Theme
Reflections is the theme for this months competition.
From endless materials and objects around us, glass water, rivers or drifting tides reflections have long been a wonderful part of many magnificent images in photography. What really seems to set them apart always seems to be a step away from the traditional rules as though them seem to take on a personal introspective perspective while being framed up.

Escape
For this new exhibition, we invite artists to show how their photographic practice can be used as a way to escape from certain realities. The various limitations we face in everyday life, whether related to a particular situation or to how society is structured, often lead us to look for ways of overcoming them. While some of us seek refuge in remote places or in nature, others are exploring means that allow a certain distortion of reality and the creation of a parallel, dreamlike universe. The

The  man and the machine
Since the first complex and automated technological inventions (starting from the experimental science of the sixteenth century up to the current electronic and digital machines) the relationship between man and machine has characterized every evolutionary development of civilization. Each new invention indelibly marks not only the course of technical development, but also the same vision of the world of man. A distinctive sign in the man-machine relationship is precisely the determined w

Let There Be
Photography and lens-based art is often, even unconsciously, taken for granted as being disembodied from physical reality. However, without catalytic objects such works would not be possible. For this exhibition Manifest is interested in reminding artists and the public of this fact by showcasing works that reveal the 'objectness' of photography either through display of the works themselves, the mechanisms crafted to create lens-based experiences, dialogs between photographic works and their ph

Dis/harmony
Harmony is an elusive, perhaps even ineffable aspect of photographic images. So is disharmony, its possibly disturbing, but often stimulating opposite. Although many photographers share the view that the communicative impact of images is enhanced by their harmony, there are countless individual artistic interpretations of what makes an image harmonious or disharmonious. Some consider harmony primarily as a visual compositional feature of photographs, also allowing for the unusual, for the unexpe
