Revela’T Exhibition Call. Deadline: Dec. 17, 2019

Revela’T is an international photography festival that has become a meeting point for photography lovers and especially for lovers of analog  photography  from all over the world.

In connection with the 65th anniversary of the exhibition ‘The Family Of Man’, curated by Edward Steichen, the Revela’T International Analog Photography Festival takes this iconic exhibition as its leitmotiv for its eighth edition.

TWO WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
This edition, for the theme related to the exhibition The Family of Man, there are two ways to participate:
The traditional, through the form, a series of images are sent,  if they  are chosen the copies should be sent to be displayed.
The new one, in which you can send us from 1 to 3 photographs in physical format, which will  be probably displayed at a large collective exhibition. Photographs, of course must be analog or made with some mixed technique and of any size. You can offer the photos to the Revela’t archive to be kept to be displayed in future exhibitions. If you prefer the photos can be shipped back to the author if you take care of the shipping costs. There would be a lot of pictures and we cannot cover all the expenses.

The physical adress to send the photos is: ASOCIACIÓN FOTOGRÁFICA ESPAIFOTO, Calle Pau Piferrer, 24. 08339 Vilassar de Dalt, Barcelona, Spain.
In addition, if you wish, you can participate in the 2 options independently.

Extended admission period until December 17 .

 This is only for projects with more than 20 photographs, that is, an entire exhibition. In case that your intention is to exhibit 1 to 3 photographs for a large collective exhibition within Revela’T, you have time until March 31.
