Warsaw Photo Days 2015
In November 2015 Warsaw Photo Days will launch its 3rd edition under 
the theme TESTOSTERONE. 8 individual exhibitions selected in an open 
contest formula will be presented in Warsaw galleries. Open Programme 
welcomes entries from visual artists both nationally and 
internationally, supporting all disciplines of photographic (and 
photography-based) practice.
 From among the submitted entries, the curators will select 8 most 
interesting projects, which will be presented in Warsaw galleries 
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.
