Festival Images Vevey
2021. február 28.
Professional artists and photographers, as well as those in training, have until February 28, 2021 to enter the competition for the 13th Grand Prix Images Vevey and/or the 4th Images Vevey Book Award 2021/2022.
Grand Prix Images Vevey is a creation-support grant for photography projects. The award, worth some 40,000 CHF (approximately 37,000 EUR), enables one artist to develop a new photography project over a year that will be presented at the next Festival Images Vevey, in 2022.
The competition represents unique support for contemporary creation, with complete freedom of choice over subject and genre.
Images Vevey Book Award is a grant worth 10,000 CHF (approximately 9,250 EUR) that supports the creation of a book project which showcases an optimal and original balance between publication format and photographic content. It provides a financial contribution that aims to encourage artists to take risks and to innovate, in order for them to develop a suitable sophisticated publication format for their photography project.
A jury made up of professionals will meet at the end of May 2021 to select the prize-winners. Of course, the priority for Images Vevey’ organisers is to guarantee a quality artistic experience, while meeting the requirements of the current sanitary situation.
The winning projects will be produced during the year and will be presented at the next Festival Images Vevey from September 2-25, 2022.
