“FASHION AND DRESS CODES” Photo Contest

 


FIRST PRIZE: ONE-WEEK TRIP TO PARIS

REGISTRATIONS OPEN UNTIL 11th June 2017! 

All participants will win a small prize from AF Pune

 

The Alliance Française de Pune is proud to participate in the Fondation Alliance Française photo contest once more.

The theme for the 7th edition of this contest is “La Mode et les Codes Vestimentaires” – “Fashion and Dress Codes”

What does the topic : Fashion and Dress Codes mean ?

A manner of dress is like your “second skin”. Cloth is an affiliation proof : dress up, it is to assert our existence in the society, to produce signs of belonging, it is also to display identity emblems, seek to be distinguishable , express our tastes and preferences…

Traditional dress codes for party, celebration, sport, religion are all ways of dressing in specific context (generation, gender, age, geography, history…) and when the dress code becomes fashionable, it also expresses aesthetic as well as social aspiration.

The aim of the International Photo Fashion and Dress Codes Contest is to showcase the diversity of the world beyond the wealth of heritages, practices and dressing creations.

The artistic quality, as well as the originality of the works, will be appreciated by the Paris-based jury.

This contest is open to anyone who is legally a major in their country of origin.

By entering the contest, each participant will be bound by these present rules. Any failure to obey the rules will result in a candidate’s participation being cancelled.

Final date to submit your work: 11th June 2017

All participants will win a small prize from AF Pune
