THE FUTURE IN A CLICK: IDEAS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY is a free photo contest open to all young people aged between 14 and 24 years of any country of origin, residing in the Tuscany Region. Professional photographers are excluded. The prize focuses on the themes of reception, interaction, cooperation and collaboration seen as a synergistic flywheel of opportunities. The theme can be declined on the environment, economy and social reality in Tuscany. It can be developed in the ways that are deemed most consistent, always with the image as a tool to narrate reality.
The winner will receive a prize consisting of tourist vouchers, to spend on the territory and a specific interview on the online magazine www.stradenuove.net, where the photos of the winning report will also be published. Will also be carried out actions on social media to promote the winner, and any honorable mentions, on the channels of Primavera d'Impresa, the magazine www.stradenuove.net and the newspaper Il Tirreno.
The winning photoreportage will be the subject of a digital exhibition, inaugurated on the day of the award ceremony, in the AtlantePhotoExpo exhibition space. Compatibly with the Covid-19 situation, the organization reserves the right to organize also an in-person photographic exhibition, in a location to be defined.
