The Budapest Diary is delighted to announce its brand new international open call for amateur and professional photographers. Faces of the World invites artists to explore the diverse layers of portraiture and documentary photography by capturing the essence of a moment, the essence of a gaze.

Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

Peter Adams

The motto of this competitive exhibition, by Peter Adams, summarizes the main idea of what photography is about. What matters is not technique or machine quality, all photographs are valid as long as it communicates with the viewer. The selection committee, therefore, is looking for captures with a multi-layered depth of feelings, disregarding major technical or theoretical photography knowledge and skill requirements. This allows several doors to be opened for amateur and hobby photographers, giving opportunity to photography lovers around the world to come together and celebrate diversity, the Faces of the World.
