World cyanotype day – now closed for entries!

World Cyanotype Day 2022It’s here again, and it’s now open for entries, find physical locations here or read below how to enter in our gallery at AlternativePhotography.com. See you there?

We have started taking entries and will post them in our gallery until the deadline (midnight your time zone Cyanotype Day). Do make our lives a little easier by following ALL of these steps, please. 🙂

  1. Create a cyanotype on this year’s theme “Enlighten”. No nudes allowed.
  2. Scan it or photograph it and resize it to 1080 pixels on its LONGEST side.
    PLEASE don’t send large files, it ends up in the spam box and we may miss it.
    Icon resize images to 1080 square
  3. Name the file “Name Surname, Country, Title.jpg” for example “Joanne Smith, USA, Enlightened.jpg” (Your name, the country where you are from, and the title of the image). Only ONE cyanotype per person.
  4. Use a file transfer such as Dropbox (free account) or WeTransfer if you can. Large files may get lost. Email the link and your Instagram account (if you have one and want to be tagged) to talk@alternativephotography.com. You will get a confirmation email within 2 days.
  5. It is FREE to enter, but please consider becoming a supporting member or making a donation, so we can keep doing projects like these.
  6. All the cyanotypes will be on display in the World Cyanotype Day 2022 gallery.
