About this years theme.
PhotoChina officials explain that the theme of ‘Home: Encounter’ explores the importance of one’s homeland as often the source of inspiration for artists (and of course this includes photographers).
Home, they believe, is always important to our mental, emotional and spiritual health. This can sometimes be reflected in memories of childhood and for those in far distant places can even bring about homesickness.
As time moves on thoughts of home can arouse a range of reactions and recollections, and artists are often moved to evoke those memories to display their feelings, and capture their ideas of home in fascinating, intimate images.
Over the last ten years PhotoChina Original has won a reputation as one of the world’s most influential and critically acclaimed photography events.
Organised under the Colourul Guizhou banner, and with the overall theme of protecting and promoting the environment. The event continues to develop and expand.
The subject focus for this year’s exhibition is titled ‘Encounter: Home’.
It is being staged in mid to late September in the beautiful Langde Miao Village in Leishan County in China’s south-western province of Guizhou.
The organisers are inviting contributions from photographers worldwide. They are also hoping to welcome photography groups, clubs, exhibition curators and other related experts and scholars from different countries to take part in what promises to be an unforgettable cultural gala.
Sinocreative Associates are pleased to be assisting 'China Photo Original' International Photographic Exhibition' which is jointly hosted by the People’s Government of Guizhou Province, which is located in China’s southwest region, the Information Office of China’s State Council, the China National Tourism Administration, China News Service and UNESCO.
This fascinating photography exhibition has been staged in the colourful Chinese province of Guizhou since 2008 with Chinese photographers invited to submit a portfolio of work from their own cities and regions.
In 2011 the contest was opened up to foreign photographers so that the different worldwide cultures and communities could be seen side-by-side, demonstrating China’s ongoing campaign for a ‘more harmonious’ world.
In previous years the competition achieved global acclaim and featured remarkable images by photographers from across China and the world.
