This year's contest, which was open for all members of the international photographic community, was officially closed on February 25th 2014 at midnight, as it had been announced. Photographs from 30 countries were submitted and as expected, photographers from the region preceded the number of applications but photographers from Great Britain, Spain, Hungary, Austria, Romania etc were not lagging behind.
A total of seven hundred photographers applied with more than 10,304 photographs, of which more than 4000 were in the artistic concept category.
The results of the first round of judging (the names of photographers who have qualified for the second round of judging by the main selector, Tod Papageorge) will be published between March 10-15, 2014.
Thank you all for the applications and for your participation. We wish you success!
