The Foundation of Visual Education (Fundacja Edukacji Wizualnej) has opened the call for its 2017 Grand Prix Fotofestiwal photography competition.
Grand Prix gives photographers an opportunity to present their works during Fotofestiwal (Łódź/Poland) and awards artists with exceptional personality and projects that present daring ideas.
In 2018, the Grand Prize is 10,000 Polish złoty (~2,500 Euro). Ten (10) artists will become part of an exhibition during Fotofestiwal 2018 (Łódź/Poland, seen by over 20.000 viewers). Additionally, ten more artists will be featured in slideshows during the Fotofestiwal and other international photography festivals – Fotofestiwal’s partners.
Submission does not impose any restrictions related to topics, age or place.
Fotofestiwal was established in 2001 as one of the first photography events in Poland. It was a spontaneous initiative of students and lecturers of the Sociology Department. Since then, photography and ways of organizing cultural events have transformed. The same has been true for Fotofestiwal itself – we have a different perspective towards the program, we work differently, our viewer’s needs have changed. Still, Fotofestiwal remains a space for presenting various forms and types of photography, a forum for discussion about art and society, a motivation to search for alternative methods of discussing and exhibiting photography. But first of all, invariably, it is a place where people meet.
