The fifth edition of the Khayyam International Exhibition of Photography has issued a call for submission of works until December 23.

Categories defined for the works include ‘open monochrome, open color, city, creative, travel and telephone’, IRNA reported.

Photos sent to the event secretariat will be judged on December 31. Selected photos will be put on display in early January and winners will be announced on the last day of the exhibit on Jan. 14, 2018.

The contest will be held in cooperation with Focus Photo Club, affiliated to the cultural institute of Khayyam House of Art, which functions as the executive arm of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) in Iran.

It is the only event in Iran with more foreign works than Iranian photographs. The popularity of the earlier edition of the contest was a record among similar events.

Those interested can visit www.Khayyam.Photo for registration and further information about the event.

In the previous round, a total of 21,399 photos were submitted by 1861 participants from 55 countries. In each category the photos were evaluated at four levels.

Selected works were featured in 50 plus exhibitions worldwide, in Italy, Spain, China, Oman, Greece, Hong Kong, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Luxemburg, France, Macedonia, Argentina, several cities in Iran and South Africa.

Khayyam House of Art and Focus Photo Club, the organizers of the exhibit, have named the event after Persian polymath and poet Omar Khayyam (1048–1131), who wrote treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy, music, climatology and theology.

Focus Photo Club said in a statement that the cultural event seeks to send a message of peace and friendship from Iranian artists to the comity of nations.
