DANTE PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOLARSHIP
THERE IS NO AGE LIMIT TO PARTICIPATE
Traveling from one place of the world to another one we immediately recognise the existence of other cultures. At the first instance, there is no need to have conversation with people not even read information about a place. Culture is what we see and what we see are also images. These images and cultures are what constitute the differences and similarities in the world.
Highly motivated photographers from all over the globe are invited to apply for the Dante Photography Scholarship. Understanding of culture through images will be the central topics of this competition. Photography is the key to the understanding of our own culture and that of our neighbors.
With these scholarships, we hope to not only provide a platform to share photos and improve skills, but also to give a few talented photographers a foot in the door of one of the most notoriously difficult industries to break in to.
