GRID2012’s central theme is Urban Reality Check – Reflections on Changing behaviour and space. Since Your Reality is in line with this theme, the organizers ask you to express your personal vision of reality. Worldwide society and communities are constantly changing, which has positive and negative effects on its people, both economic and social. Assess and consider the changes that you are perceiving around you, document these and develop your personal vision.

Participants are invited to upload their photos in a personal portfolio via Viewbook. The photo story or series is allowed to consist of min. 3 to max. 10 photos (on 300 dpi), also a description of the project (max. 300 words) and a short personal bio are required. A lay-out of the pages (max. 3 spreads) is optional.

You can submit your proposal through three steps:

  1. Sign up for your free Viewbook trail (if you already have a Viewbook account proceed to the next step),
  2. Upload your images,
  3. In order to share your story, click ‘Share’ in the main toolbar and then click the GRID2012 icon.
