Photometria Awards

In a world where perceptions are increasingly mediated and reality itself can seem elusive, we invite photographers to explore the multifaceted nature of constructed realities through their lens.

Photography has always held the power to capture and shape narratives, but in today’s digital age, the lines between reality and fabrication blur more than ever. From carefully curated social media feeds to AI-generated imagery, our understanding of what is real is constantly challenged.

Consider how directed photography can manipulate perceptions, presenting a carefully constructed version of reality. Venture into dreamworlds where reality bends and twists, offering glimpses into alternate dimensions of existence. Reflect on the influence of media propaganda, where images are weaponized to sway opinions and distort truths.

“Constructed Realities” invite photographers to push the boundaries of creativity and imagination, to provoke thought and inspire dialogue. Whether through conceptual compositions or documentary-style narratives, we encourage artists to challenge perceptions and question the constructs that shape our understanding of reality.

Join us in exploring the intricate tapestry of constructed realities, where truth and fiction converge, and where every image holds the potential to reveal, distort, or reimagine the world around us. Let your creativity roam freely as you navigate the realms of perception and illusion.
