From among the submitted entries, the curators will select 8 most

during the festival. Out of the 8 finalists the jury will select the
GRAND PRIX winner, who will receive the prize of EURO 1200. The
exhibitions will be produced by the organiser from the high res files
received form the artists.
The theme of the 3rd edition of Warsaw Photo Days is TESTOSTERONE. We
are looking for projects that analyze or problematize the theme of
masculinity. Our understanding of the festival theme - Testosterone -
is broad. It could be the life force of the human kind, empowering
both men and women's lives. It may also be the subject of endless
social and civilizational readjustments, both physical and
psychological, redefined across generations, manifesting itself in a
number of different ways. We will look into the ways of picturing
contemporary masculine archetypes, its attributes, positive
developments and possible dangers.
