We are at the end of the EA Cup 2023 journey, the exciting photographic challenge dedicated to Exhibit Around members. It is a single knock-out tournament, where the photos compete until the final podium rich in prizes. Exhibit Around members have had free access to the photo competition by submitting a street photography-themed photo. But that’s not all: the members have also competed as jurors, choosing the most deserving photos in each elimination round.
The tournament can therefore be won in two ways: in addition to the traditional podium with the best photos voted by the jury, perseverance in voting and photographic intuition in knowing how to choose the winning photo will also be rewarded. The participant who has accumulated the highest number of points by voting will win the “Best Voter” award.
The best photos will be chosen and awarded live during the international festival of urban photography Trieste Photo Days. The event will take place in Trieste from 27 to 29 October 2023 and will host great international photographers such as Alec Soth, Jérôme Sessini, Kadir Van Lohuizen and Laura Zalenga, just to name a few. To stay updated on the festival, you can visit the dedicated website.
We are publishing the final ranking of the tournament. But that’s not all: the top 8 photos of the ranking will be exhibited for free in the “Sala Xenia” Exhibition hall (Riva Tre Settembre, Trieste) during the festival days. The hall will also host the collective exhibition of the Winners of URBAN Photo Awards 2023, the international photo contest promoted by dotART and Exhibit Around.
Here you can find the complete ranking for the “Best Voter” award. Congratulations to this year’s winner Jose Gaston Barriga.The points up for grabs have been progressively increased with each round, making the final result truly unpredictable. A challenge until the last vote.
The goal of the EA Cup is to offer members who support Exhibit Around an opportunity to gain visibility highlighting their creative talent. Among the various prizes up for grabs, an invitation to the Gala Dinner: a precious moment of sharing and knowledge between photographers, great authors and guests of the festival.
