ONTHEMOVE International Award

Happiness On The Move/Felicità in Movimento 

"Only photography has been able to divide human life
into a series of moments, each of them has the value of a complete existence."
Eadweard Muybridge

ONTHEMOVE is an International Award open to photographers, professionals and amateurs, from all over the world, with no limitations of age.

At its second edition the award was created, with the confidence to assert itself as a permanent appointment within the international photo festival Cortona On The Move - photography in travel.

The main theme is Happiness On The Move. Its interpretation is left free to the vision, creativity and sensitivity of the authors who are called to reflect on the theme, moving away from its purely literal meaning and to develop it in its various aspects.

Special attention is given to the theme of movement as a real or figurative journey and to the happiness that follows:

“Travel is a kind of door through which one goes out from reality as to enter an unexplored reality 
that resembles a dream.”
Guy de Maupassant
