The annual MOREPIXX? competition is back.
Although this is first and foremost a prize competition for the best gay fetish photographs of the year, it is also a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, learn tricks, as well as to offer inspiration and encouragement to photographers, whether professional or amateur. More importantly, however, MOREPIXX? will promote photographic art within the worldwide fetish community, bringing together good photography and the photographers who create it and provide them with a stage at one of Europe’s largest fetish events to present their work to an audience of thousands.
The first prize in the competition is €500, first runner-up €250, second runner-up €125 and a special award selected by visitors to Darklands during next year's Leather & Fetish Price, is the Sly Hands Memorial Award, worth €250.
An international jury consisting of both experts in photography/art and fetish lovers will pre-select the best photographs and nominate the top 15 pictures for a worldwide public online vote. Should you wish to participate, you must submit your photos by Monday, 31 December 2018. Please visit the MOREPIXX? website for further information as well as the terms and conditions for participation and how to submit your photography
The highlight of the competition will take place during Leather Pride Belgium (February 22-24, 2019 in Antwerp), where the winners will be announced at Darklands. The top 15 nominated pictures will also be exhibited at Darklands, allowing visitors to not only see their favourite pictures in reality but also to vote for them there, too. There will also be a visitor prize The Sly Hands Memorial Award
But the thrills for the all the nominated photographs don’t end there! The same exhibition will be shown in cities in Europe eg. Amsterdam during Amsterdam Pride as well as in September during Folsom Europe in Berlin. And we are working on an exhibition in Chicago during IML 2019. Bring your photographs into the public eye and exhibit them across the world!
