Photography is an art that excites, it finds place and space in the heart and mind of those who practice it and then captures the viewer.

As a great and famous photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson used to say, “it’s an illusion that the pictures are done with the camera … they are done with the eyes, the heart, the head”.
With a “A Year in Swing” we wanted to enhance a new means that can transmit the emotions of the Policoro in Swing. In this way, photographing is not just documenting an event, it is a means of recovering the memory of an emotion.

With Policoro in Swing 2019 there will the third Edition of ” A Year in Swing” – A Calendar of the Swing!

“A Year in Swing” is a contest that can be attended by all those who will be present at the 2019 edition of Policoro in Swing and will shoot their photos by any means during the Festival Week.

The contest will start right after the Festival. At the end, 12 photos will be selected, which will compose the First Calendar “One Year in Swing”.
