Everything stolen?

Photo Contest

Time frame: 15.10. - 31.12.2018

In our photo contest, we want to show pictures and associations, connected to the topic of “knowledge transfer”. Search for exceptional and fascinating motives and present them to us. You may take a photograph of knowledge sources, play with the idea of fake and real, rearrange a famous artwork or display yourself as a spy – The contest offers a large range of interpretations and allows many additions to the topic.

Use your imagination and creativity freely. Not only will the quality be taken into account, also authenticity and execution.
