Original post 29 March: Adeje department of culture, under councillor Nayra Medina Bethencourt, has released details of the Adeje Summer University’s photography competition. The competition’s central theme is knowledge, with entrants asked to present their personal interpretation of learning and the search for it. The winning photograph will win the first prize of €600 and also be used as the main poster for the XXII Summer University this year. The second placed photograph will win €300.
Entries can be submitted from today, 29 March, and the competition is open until Wednesday, 9 April. Entries should be either delivered to the department of culture, or posted after being stamped at the post office with the date sent to ensure that it qualifies. According to councillor Bethencourt, “the Adeje Summer University has always been a forum for debate and participation and for that reason we want to encourage even more participation in the creative process from the public. Photography encompasses so much – art, science, memory and the human experience and we hope the idea will appeal to a lot of people.”
Those who wish to enter must abide by certain rules and respect the theme of knowledge in their final work, as well as displaying their theme development, composition, light, and originality.
