As part of the first international photo contest OBIETTIVO VENEZIA – Focus on Venice (which will be held between the 6th December 2012 and the 30th April 2013 www.comune.venezia.it, www.veniceconnected.com, www.promovetro.com, www.muranoglass.com), Consorzio Promovetro, managing authority for the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark, and Venice City Council, created the Murano Glass section.
Professionals, amateurs, or simple photography lovers, participating to the Murano glass section of the contest, will be able to send at max. 5 pictures of glass products, processing, tools, furnaces and laboratories, workers and gaffers, and everything else that belongs to the world of Murano Glass, and to its island, its atmospheres, sceneries and narrow streets.
The aim of the contests, which is free, is to spread the beauties of the city of Venice, and to promote the 1000 thousand years old art of Murano Glass.
All pictures about Murano and its glass, either colour or black and white, will have to be sent to email@example.com. Later they will be selected by Consorzio Promovetro.
A final jury composed by representatives of Venice City Council and Consorzio Promovetro Murano, will award the first two pictures of each section: “Venice” and “Murano Glass”. President of the jury is the most famous venetian photographer Fulvio Roiter.
“Consorzio Promovetro is enthusiastically participating to this initiative, together with Venice City Council, says Luciano Gambaro, President of Consorzio Promovetro. “We are eager to receive pictures, able to pay tribute to the most traditional venetian craftsmanship. We are waiting for you”!
A special Web Award will be given to the web users’ favourite pictures.
Moreover some of the best pictures will be used on the web sites www.promovetro.com and www.muranoglass.com and on Murano Glass’s social networks (facebook, pinterest, twitter, G+, etc…)
Consorzio Promovetro will be part of the jury and also will realise the awards for the contests, which will be characterised by the Vetro Artistico® Murano trademark, the only legally recognised trademark that tell if a piece of glass has really been produced in the island of Murano.
