CONTEST FOR THE MOST UNUSUAL / IMPRESSIVE EXHIBITION OF THE PHOTOS FROM THE BALLOON SCI-ART GALLERY MISSION

We plan to organise two separate competitions: for the most awe-inspiring and impressive galleries; and for the most unusual and original ones. Both form and place of the exhibition will be taken into account.

As multiple participants will create their own photo galleries, we expect them to be unique, in extraordinary forms and places. Thanks to such presentations of photographs, we will all get acquainted not only with many interesting places, but also with one another, all taking part in the project.

The winners of both contests will be chosen in online voting by the project followers.

The winners in each category are going to be awarded with 30 original albums by Marek Ostrowski, each of the books bearing a special dedication for the winner. Out of those 30 volumes, 10 will go to the participants from Warsaw and 20 to those from the rest of the world.

Apart from that, 250 of the most active participants will receive personalized e-diplomas of the City Knowledge Academy, certifying their contribution to the project.

THE SECOND LIFE OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The participants who share their private exhibitions of the mission photos will have an opportunity to bring back the images deleted after the flight by voting for their favourite ones. The chosen photographs  will be once again uploaded on the project website and, if possible, also exhibited in public space.

INTERNATIONAL COMIC PROJECT

Imagine the matrix of 100 fields in a free combination, e.g. 10x10, 20x5, or maybe even in a more abstract, non-rectangular form. Then, in the selected fields we insert the mission photographs, the ones brought back to life by the participants.

The next task is to fill-in the remaining empty fields with your own comic-style narrative. The participating artists can include their own photos, pictures, texts or, in the electronic form, also special/sound effects. The most artistically and intellectually engaging stories will be publishes, and their authors will receive the next ten albums by Marek Ostrowski.
