THE CONTEST – Run for Art is a photo contest promoted, organised and realised by the Giulio Onesti Foundation, a non-profit organization which aims at the promotion of sport values and culture. It was founded in 1983, with the purpose of passing the work of Giulio Onesti, the pioneer of Italian sport, to new generations, in Italy and abroad. The project is supported by the Institute for sports credit (ICS). The Foundation promotes activities mainly, addressed to young people, in order to raise awareness on sports value.
Following the success of the 3rd edition, it was decided to propose again, in 2018, the competition atinternational level. At the core, there is again, the union between art and sport expressed in the artistic form that best embodies physical activity and movement: photography.
The goal of the competition is to create an exhibition of pictures that mirrors the values of sport in the broadest sense: sports available to art and vice versa. The participation at the contest is completely free.
