The PhotoPhore, in collaboration with photo l.a., is glad to launch ODE TO RED #odetored, the contest giveaway that gives you the possibility to win 2 free tickets to visit photo l.a. art exposition (January 12-15, 2017)!
Artists, photographers, igers and amateurs are invited to submit photo works about RED, this year edition colour of photo l.a.’s logo. PARTICIPATION is FOR FREE!
A strong identifying sign which shapes your identity and reveals it: RED. Strong, bright and passionate. Meaningful and powerful.
The colour of heart and blood. The colour of the sunset, of the fire. Of glamorous lipsticks and sweetest fruits.
Red is the coulour of sacrifice, danger, and passion. The colour of love.
We want you to submit pictures in which the colour RED is the protagonist.
Show the RED in your life.
Paint it RED. Tag it RED.
