For the 22nd year in a row, from the 3rd to the 8th of July 2017, the Voies Off Awards (Emerging Photography International Awards) give a look on worldwide emerging photography at the heart of the Rencontres d’Arles. Photographers selected for the Voies Off Awards will have the opportunity to be part of the 2017 Voies Off Festival program and the the winners will have a grant from 2.500 to 5.000 € for their projects.
As a professional and member of Art school, I’m sure this information could be of interest for you and your students, that’s why I’m contacting you today.
Photographers, professionals and amateurs, are now invited to submit their work until the 15th of February 2017.
The Voies Off Prize is an Emerging Photography International Award, opened to every talented photographer around the world. It grants photographic works judged by a professional jury as personal and original, structured as a series by a uniting thought, vision or theme. The main criterion for the selection remains the expression of an author’s vision.
This year, the amount of the Award is:
– 5.000 € for the Voies Off Award
– 2.500 € for the Discovery SAIF Award
– The winner of the lacritique.org
Award will be granted the publication of a portfolio along with an introductory text by one of the best art critic on the lacritique.org
Among the applications that we receive, 60 photographers are also selected for the Festival’s Night Projections. At the Heart of the Rencontres d’Arles, it is a unique opportunity for their images to be seen internationally.
The amount of the registration fees for the 2016 Voies Off Award is 30 euros per photograph. The collective applications (student groups of a same school for example) are also accepted. In that case, the amount of the registration fees are of 30 euros + 10 euros per photograph.
Convinced that the participation to such an event is an exceptional opportunity for young artists, I am contacting you today to know if it would be possible to spread this information among your students.
Please feel free to contact us for more information, interviews, visuals, etc. You can download our Press Kit here: http://voies-off.com/inscrire/documents/KIT_PRESSE.zip
