After holding international photography exhibitions, a history of artistic achievements, and cultural relations with the best photographers in the world, the founders of “VISIONS” agreed to share this unique experience and dream that any photographer would like to achieve through this competition. VIPA 2021 winners will be announced 1. May 2021.
Visions Foundation, its primary goal is to discover artistic faces that have not had the opportunity to show themselves, and the names are separated by long distances to see the light of fame, and to create this valuable opportunity, to open horizons of passion and inspiration and make the world a place full of art and creativity.
„There are different aspects of the story. The lens has to remove a lot of falsehood from the truth and illuminate what is dark. Taking pictures is not a mechanical movement, it is a dynamic that brings life. You can take a picture of what humans can make in the environment, unique angles from scenes that nature has mastered in its creation, straight lines and bends of modern and ancient buildings, rituals, emotions, and stories of a human or animal in his environment, an athletic body that smells of strength and determination to win. It’s a great opportunity to not be a neutral, but rather a key element of the story. And moving photography to a new stage, there is a lot of gravity, as critical shots and beautiful scenes explode, a flick of the finger and correct timing will bring us closer to your world … to your unique vision“
