Photography and literature

An international photography competition dealing with the challenge of literature.

We read – we read a lot, and often. – Words, texts, writings.
But what about the language of images? – An image can say more than a thousand words.

„… literature is one-eyed. The laughing eye is missing“ (Erich Kästner)

This competition is aimed at photographers, and is for works inspired by specific works of literature. The choice of literary form (poetry, prose, drama etc.) is open. Only one entry per person will be accepted. The entry shall not exceed 9 MB.
