The competition is open to anyone.


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.

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.

You may submit one photo inspired by literature (poetry, prose, drama etc.).
