NEW VISIONS

Free open call for extraordinary works promoted by Cortona On The Move and LensCulture.

Cortona On The Move, at its 9th edition this year, continues a creative partnership with LensCulture to seek amazing and original documentary works from all over the world.

We are looking for stories that will amaze us.

New Visions stems from the desire to keep track of the ever-changing language of photography. We await contemporary documentary projects that challenge the viewer with a new grammar to communicate a strong message with fresh emotions.

In the spirit of our motto “on the move”, we value the originality of style and language with which the works are conceived and created. Concept and execution go hand in hand, and the output should strive to attract a broad audience and to surprise/provoke/inform/move. Novelty in form and content are our keywords.
