Invitation for participation in the International Photo Competition

“M A R U B I   2003”

 “MARUBI 2003” is an International Competition of the contemporary photography organized in the Albanian National Gallery of Arts on 5 April 2003. This competition is opened with the initiative of the National Gallery of Arts  and with the financial support of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of the Republic of Albania.

“Marubi 2003” aims the promotion of the research in the field of contemporary photography and the continuity of the wonderful tradition inherited by the famous family Marubi dynasty in the Albanian Photography. For the first time in this event they will be exposed in a special section 30 works made by the photographer Bali, one of the pioneers of the Albanian photography.

This exposition is open to participants from Albania and international ones that will express their interest to participate. 

Of course, the establishment of such an international connection is necessary for the Albanian photographers as in every field of art and culture. In such a way the Albanian photographers will not only get in touch with the worldwide contemporary experience in photography, but they will have the possibility to endorse new dimensions of communication and participation with the world of artistic photography.

We suggest you to participate in this competition with some of your black and white works, which correspond to the vision of this edition.
