Yes, if they have adequate resolution and image quality. Photographs taken from any imaging device, analog or digital, will be accepted, as long as the files are digitized and have a minimum size of 3,264 pixels (longest side) at 300 DPI.
There is currently no restriction on the date in which the photo was taken.
Photographers of any nationality can participate and photographers may even submit photos taken outside the Philippines, as long as the photo being submitted has a contextual depiction of the Philippines or Filipinos.
Fotomoto has had to find a more sustainable business model that does not depend solely on fundraising and sponsorships. To help underwrite expenses related to printing, shipping, exhibit installation and marketing costs, we decided to follow the submission mechanics of photography festivals worldwide to ensure that we can continue this event every year.
Of course, as long as the images are digitized, with a minimum size of 3,264 pixels (longest side) at 300 DPI. The digitized entry will be printed and exhibited.
Yes. Works that fall under alternative processes are accepted. The entry must be submitted in digital form, with a minimum size of 3,264 pixels (longest side) at 300 DPI. The original work can be exhibited, with further discussion of details on a case-to-case basis.
Fotomoto 22 Exhibition Prints will be printed on premium, coated matte paper using archival inks.
A panel of jurors, consisting of professional photographers, photojournalists, documentarists, artists, curators, critics, and photo editors will review every image submitted. The panel will only see the image files and titles. They will not know any other information, including the identity of the artist. Hence, they will select solely based on the value of the image.
We are targeting around 300, the same as Fotomoto 21.
