SELECTION PROCESS

4 DECISIVE ELEMENTS

Dodho presents many types of photographers with an open mind and a high level of requirement. It’s not a unique genre of photography, but different aspects and visions. It’s a great value to be in such a gallery. The visuals and writing are really good and we immediately feel how passionate the founders are. 

Julien De Wilde – Finalist – Black & White Award 2017

https://www.dodho.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/book5-1.png

All portfolios presented are considered by our jury without the author’s data, this means that our judges do not know the photographer name and its origin until the end of the selection process. In this way we guarantee that the selection process takes place in the most transparent and democratic way possible.

All the portfolios received are valued through four decisive elements. Technical factors, composition factors, emotional factors and style factors. After the presentation period ends, the finalist works and portfolios will be reviewed again, for the final selection. The jury’ decision will be communicated during the second week of October. An email will be sent to all the participants, informing them of the result of their presentation.

CONDITIONS & LICENSES

All participants to Black & White 2019, by virtue of their presentation, believing the images and projects presented are their own work and there has been no infringement of copyright. Dodho is not responsible for any infringement of rights may arise during the selection process and subsequent display of any image. The entrant is responsible for obtaining, prior to submission of the photograph, any and all releases and consents necessary to permit the exhibition and use of the photograph. The projects will be judged by a professional and relevant jury in the photography field, with no flare and none of the author data. The jury’s decision will not be appealable and will be definitive.

COPYRIGHTS & USAGE RIGHTS

The images and projects copyright will be exclusively and at all times of the photographer and author of the project. The images will use strictly in relation to the Dodho prizes and will not be used for other purposes than the direct promotion of their authors. The images may not be used in any case by any third party without the express consent of the author and by written request, which will be sent to the author by email. Dodho is granted the right to publish the best works received in its online version and subsequent promotion in its social networks, always safeguarding authorship and copyright.

I have a deep appreciation for everything Dodho Magazine does.  I visit the website often to be inspired by the many different genres and approaches to photography that you guys share with your audience. I am, of course, both humbled and grateful, that your judges selected me for an honorable mention and then included me in your book.  I often feel that many of the many, many, many photography contests in the world are just about collecting money (with no real interest in photography or photographers).  This is not true for Dodho.  You guys work very hard to share the value of photography.I am very, very happy to have been selected and included.  Thank you very, very much!
