BITFF 2010 PHOTO CONTEST

BITFF’s photo contest offers photographers from around the world a unique opportunity to share their vision of travel, life, people, and sub-culture.

Our ongoing theme is ‘Visit my City!’, and we’d like to ask photographers to not only capture defining images of a particular place but to also consider the people, lifestyles, and subcultures of the places they document; a powerful portrait or image of a gathering can equally reveal the depth and mystery of the travel experience.

At BITFF, our concept of travel is different from other magazines. It’s not just about destinations; it’s about journeys. For us, travel is a state of mind, and as much as we’re passionate about traveling to distant places and discovering new people, delicious food, intriguing nightspots and scenic locations, it’s also possible to discover new worlds in your own city simply by changing neighborhoods or documenting a different circle of culture.

Based on this broad understanding of travel, photographers are encouraged to submit traditional travel images, studies of the people and environs they encounter as they travel, and even explorations of their own local surroundings. Above all, entries should inspire BITFF visitors to explore the many worlds contained in this, our one planet.
