11th APRIL – 8th MAY

Take part in the Lake Garda Block Notes Photo Contest 2022 and use your photos to tell the story of a “normal day”.

Divided into four different sessions, each one lasting a week, the Block Notes Photo Contest collects your “Photographic notes of A NORMAL DAY”.
Photographs can be taken anywhere; they don’t need to be related to Sirmione or Lake Garda.

4 weeks
4 different moments of the day
The Block Notes Photo Contest is divided into four weekly sessions, it is open to everyone and participation is free.
To tell the story of the different moments in your day, each week the photographs must refer to a specific time frame that will change every 7 days: in the morning, at noon, in the afternoon and in the evening, these are the four moments that should provide inspiration. Each photographer can provide one photo per week that must be sent by 11.59 pm on Sunday.
