The dotART and Exhibit Around APS associations, promoters of the Trieste Photo Days festival, are launching a free open call for the second volume of the editorial project Mythography.

Launched in 2021, Mythography is a series of collective photographic books freely inspired by Greek and Roman mythology, resulting in exhibitions and talks in the international setting of Trieste Photo Days.

After the first volume dedicated to Mars, Saturn and Neptune, Mythography II will be produced in 2022, focusing on the figures of:

  • Apollo, god of the Sun and Art, representing the themes of colour and light, fine-art and abstract photography
  • Pluto, god of Shadows, symbolising night photography, black & white, shadows and silhouettes.

We are therefore looking for photographers interested in submitting single photos and/or projects/portfolios/series freely inspired by a theme/style of their choice among those represented by the deities Apollo and Pluto.

Selection is open from 19 April to 22 May 29 May 2022 NEW DEADLINE on our user area. Registration is completely free, as well as the participation to the project in case of selection.

Each author is free to infuse their works with their own style and choose the type of photography that suits them best. It is possible to submit works for several themes.

Special guest of the book and of the exhibition is a master of Italian photography history: Nino Migliori.

The book will be edited and introduced by Enrico Medda, professor of Greek Literature at the University of Pisa, who has already worked as a scientific consultant on the first volume of the series.

The best photos and projects will be included in the volume Mythography II, which will be presented during the opening weekend of the Trieste Photo Days festival (end of October 2022), with a conference in which Nino Migliori and Professor Medda will also take part.

» Photos and projects guidelines

  • Each photographer can upload up to 20 single works and up to 2 projects/portfolios consisting of a minimum of 3 photos and a maximum of 20 photos.
  • The photographer must specify the theme of each photo and portfolio (Apollo / Pluto) selecting the tag.
  • We accept both colour and black and white photos.
  • Projects and portfolios may be accompanied by a brief description, which Exhibit Around reserves the right to modify, edit and/or not publish. The author’s name will always be present.
  • We will select a photo that will become the cover image and the official visual of the project. We therefore invite authors who wish to do so to name one of the candidate photos “Book cover”. The ideal image for the cover is evocative, represents the spirit of the project well and contains “empty space” for the insertion of the title.
  • Photos should not contain signatures, watermarks, or frames.
  • Please do NOT upload identical photos in the Portfolio section and in the Single Photos section (e.g. a Portfolio of 20 photos + the same 20 photos as 20 Single Photos). If necessary, you can upload a maximum of 1 or 2 representative photos of your portfolio in the Single Photo section as well.

» Technical characteristics of the images

  • Format .jpg
  • Colour method RGB
  • Individual files must be less than 9 MB each
  • Minimum size smallest side: 2000 px / maximum size longest side: 6000 px
  • The file name (filename.jpg) must not contain any special characters (accents, apostrophes, symbols, etc.)

» Upload
In the Portfolio section, to make sure the order of the photos is correct, add numbers in the desired sequence to the file name (e.g., “filename03.jpg”, “08filename.jpg”, …).


» Copyright
Each photographer retains the moral rights and intellectual property rights to his or her entries. Each author grants the dotART and Exhibit Around APS associations the non-exclusive right to use the winning/selected images to promote/publicise the non-profit activities of the association, subject to official communication to the author (whose name will always be attributed to the work).
