Festival Images is launching another round of its project competition. Artists and photographers have an opportunity ntil March 15th 2013 to enter the Vevey International Photo Award.
This competition represents a unique form of support for contemporary original works, with a free choice of subject matter and genre.
The visual arts Festival Images is the first open-air photography festival of Switzerland. Every two years, it produces unseen monumental photography exhibitions in the streets of Vevey and also proposes numerous exhibitions in various regional institutions dedicated to the image. The festival is also an opportunity to introduce the winning projects of the two competitions it organises: the Vevey International Photo Award and the European First Film Award.
The purpose of this award consists in providing crucial assistance for projects that have not been realised, in the form of a grant up to CHF 40,000 (around € 33,000), in order to bring a photography or film initiative to completion. There is also the potential to win other prizes and receive exhibitions proposals at Quai1 or during the Festival Images.
End of April 2013, a jury of visual arts professionals will choose the projects that will be supported by the Festival. The winning projects will be realised within the following year and previewed at the next Festival Images in September 2014.
The Vevey International Photo Award 2013/2014 is open to all artists, and professional or student photographers.
