Fourth year of Formentera's sports photo contest arrives with brand-new feature—selfies

foto 1The Formentera Council's department of fitness is hosting the fourth Concurs de Fotografia Esportiva—a photo contest which, in showing sport from rarely seen angles, uses photography as a lever to promote fitness. Photos must in some way be related to sport, though the focus can be on any element therein. This year's competition includes four awards; the first prize is €300, the second is €200, the third is €100 and—new this year—a special, €150 prize for the best selfie.

Terms of participation
Each contender can submit no more than three photos. Photos already submitted to other competitions will not be accepted. Images may be in colour or black and white. Physical submissions must be unframed paper prints, with minimum 20cm width and maximum 40cm height. Accepted formats are square, digital, classic and panoramic.

Digital submissions must be in .jpg format and no more than 8Mb. Modifications must not exceed changes to tone, saturation, light, contrast, levels and curves.

Physical submissions, accepted at the Citizen's Information Office (OAC) until November 25, should include a blank envelope containing the photographer's full name, address, e-mail and contact telephone number.

Prints can also be submitted via certified post to Consell Insular de Formentera, plaça de la Constitució, 1, 07860 Sant Francesc Xavier, Formentera. Submissions via certified post must include an envelop with the contestant's information as well as the certified envelop, and both should include a pseudonym for identification purposes.

Digital submissions should be sent to fotografiaesportiva@conselldeformentera.cat with the following information: Contestant's full name, e-mail address, contact telephone number and town of residence. Each photo must carry a title and indication of where and when it was taken.

A panel of eminent figures from the world of the visual arts will be responsible for selecting the winning photos. Winners will be announced in early December and winning photos will be displayed in Antoni Blanc fitness centre.
