Darkness and Light - photo competition

Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary, Faculty of Pedagogy Department of Arts, Physical Education and Lifestyle announced a photo competition called Darkness and Light.

“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
