Arrives Giovanni Raspini Milano Mood Portrait, a great photographic competition tied to the city of Milan, to fashion, to design and to people, organized in partnership with Photo Milano - Spazio Tadini. The project originates from the desire to relate with the contemporary world through a media fundamental for the life of the fashion world and the natural attitude of Giovanni Raspini in fostering culture and artistic creativity through concrete tools.
The competition is divided into two sections:
A) Street style & fashion, or fashion and its world. Fashion seen as a system of signs. The outfit staged by the maison as well as, daily and with the most heterogeneous combinations, by people in the streets of Milan. Shop windows, selling fashion, style choices in everyday life, but also artisanship and handicraft work, all the expressions of fashion starting from its planning to its communication. In the context of the city that symbolizes fashion.
B) Urban design & people, or Milan as the capital of design and new architecture. The spaces and atmospheres designed by urban planners and lived by people. "On the road" lifestyle. The architectural project of the city. The skyscrapers, the parks, the interiors, the overlapping of different stylistic elements - that even create a unique unmistakable panorama - more and more lived and shared by people.
It was possible submit registration from November 1st to December 17th 2018 and participate with up to two unpublished works. The 200 selected photographs will be exposed for a month at Spazio Tadini.
Important prizes for a total value of 5,000 euros are expected, in addition to the trophy created by Giovanni Raspini. The works will also be published in the photographic book which will be printed and distributed in bookshops by the organizing committee.
