FINALITIES AND OBJECTIVES
The Photo Contest EAT IN EUROPE 2013 represents an opportunity to reflect upon the importance of concepts like food and nutrition in general, the value of the “meal”, sustaining a fair and organic consumption in modern European societies.
The picture presented by each candidate can refer to a wide range of subject areas relating to the main theme, food. The following categories and suggestions can be taken into account as an illustrative, yet incomplete list of examples:
- FOOD AND SOCIAL RELATIONS: food as an essential element socialising processes in everyday life; the meal as a “sharing moment”, as a ritual, as an opportunity to interact and converse.
- FOOD AND FOOD WASTE: towards the development of a “critic” and fair food consumption, which is in line with the struggle against food loss, food waste and garbage overproduction.
- FOOD, LAND AND AGRICULTURE: food considered as a tool of an environmentally sustainable agriculture; the relevance of biological products, organic food and the spread of the so called “short distribution chain”.
- FOOD AND HEALTH: food as functional to a good nutrition; a deeper knowledge of healthy food habits leads to a better awareness of the most known eating disorders.
- FOOD AND CULTURE: food as an expression medium of a country’s culture, arts, history, literature, cooking traditions; discovering local tastes for a better knowledge of a country and its culture.
The main purpose of the competition is to promote an active reflection on the importance and the value of food in European societies, which are apparently highly evolved, but often have to face up to serious problems and contradictions: on the one hand, general wasting caused by the excesses of consumer society, globalization and capitalist system; on the other hand, the increase in the amount of hunger problems, such as undernourishment and malnutrition, also in those countries in which food is not usually considered as one of the issues of first importance.
Photographs can be inspired by one of the categories suggested above; they should be original, and both artistic and European in scope. There are no limits as to what the subject of the photo may be, however it must serve as a call to action for Europeans to raise awareness about this theme.
Special attention will be paid to submissions which include the photo and a COOKING RECIPE of the country of origin (it can be written in Italian or in English). The recipe is not compulsory or decisive in order to participate to the competition, however it is very appreciated (all photos and recipes coming from different European countries will be collected and published in a book by Europe Direct Firenze).
