The late Dr. Seyed Musa Hejazi (1877-1953) was a supporter of patients with psychiatric disorders and the founder of the first psychiatric hospital in the east of the country.

 

We believe in the undeniable influence of art and the psyche on each other, so that by lighting a candle, we can shine a light into a thousand psyches and shed more light on and understand this mysterious part of human existence. We believe that artistic expression has the power to raise the culture and public awareness of illness and mental health and help everyone to seek to improve their mental health with peace of mind. For this reason, we seek to cultivate a new branch by combining science and art, from the essence of imagination and reality. And how much better it is for this revelation and knowledge, and with God's help, to be realized by holding a competition and inviting photographers and artists. And by organizing a contest, the following goals should be achived: a deeper understanding of the mystery of the human psyche, looking at health and mental development from an artistic perspective, an artistic look at the mentally ill, and understanding the psychological ills of human society in the days of Corona.


 

The 2nd ART AND PSYCHIATRY International contest of Photography is organized by the Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Psychiatric and Behavioral Sciences Research Center, School of Medicine and Department of Psychiatry and Khorasan Branch of the Scientific Association of Psychiatrists and support of Focus Photo Club. The contest is with the recognition by FPC W2021/P14 & Salon.Photo 2021-058.

ETHICAL INVESTIGATIONS:

 

By the sole act of submitting his/her images or files to the salon, the entrant accepts without exception and with no objection the following terms:

- that the submitted images can be investigated by the salon to establish if these obey to THE SALON regulations and definitions even if the entrant is not a member of THE SALON,

IMPORTANT: Concerning digital entries, THE SALON recommends that authors should preserve intact, with no alteration, the original metadata of images. In case of contestation for incompliance with THE SALON regulations the fact of not being able to access this important data could mean that the author could be sanctioned.

Each author whose image shows any suspicions about the compliance with THE SALON regulations or definitions can be requested by the organizer or by THE SALON, to submit the original file (file containing the data recorded by the sensor, if so, the RAW file) plus the file of the image immediately before and immediately following the questionable image.
