Call for entries: World Cyanotype Day 2023. Open for entries 30th of September and our deadline is 7th of October 2023

We will open for entries on World Cyanotype Day, the 30th of September and deadline is 7th of October 2023.

Once a year – on the last Saturday in September – the cyanotype gets special attention. Since 2015 the cyanotype is celebrated on the last Saturday in September in the yearly event World cyanotype Day. If you are not one of those who do cyanotypes EVERY day, it may be a good time to start. Don’t hesitate to take part in World Cyanotype Day, or WCD for short.

We are supporting the official World Cyanotype Day with galleries and social media coverage here. To get notified of when the theme is announced or any other cyanotype news, sign up for the Cyanotype Newsletter.
