cinemaztlán photo competition: call for entries

In preparation of the third edition of the Mexican Film Festival
Cinemaztlán we ask Dutch travellers to send in their best photos shot in
Mexico to compete in its photo competition 2009. Entries for this
competition will be gathered at the Cinemaztlánn website. A special jury
will select the best 15 photos for their originality, visual message and
for reflecting the themes blocks in which the festival has been divided
this year: Prelude to Revolution, Sexuality, Indigenous Cinema and Mexican
Panorama. The jury will take into consideration for its evaluation the
principles where the film festival stand: to look beyond Mexican
stereotypes and to address the way in which tradition and modernity merge
in the country.

The winning works will be exhibited in De Balie hall during the 3rd
edition of the film festival. Photographers whose work will be exhibited
get a pass-partout for the festival and the exhibition print of their
photo. Every photographer who has shot some nice pictures in Mexico can
send them in from 1st to 18th of October to
