September 29, 2023 until March 15, 2024
For more than three years, Bert Verhoeff and David Galjaard photographed the changing environment along the river Zaan. The results can soon be seen at the exhibition Currents. The Zaan in Motion at the Zaans Museum. Still, the region is always in motion. We would therefore like to invite you to add to the photo project. Follow the lead of Tim Knol and take a picture of your changing Zaan. Pick, for example, a sharp contrast between two worlds, a building project or a distinctive portrait.
Every month, the photographers will select the best submissions, and will choose one of them as the photo of the month. The winning photograph will be given a place of honour in the exhibition. Who knows, your photograph might soon be on display in the museum!
Email your photograph with the name of the photographer, the location and date to email@example.com.
Within five weeks, you will learn whether your photo has been selected. There will be no correspondence about the results.
Photographs can be submitted until March 15, 2024.
To participate, follow these rules:
