Photoreporter Festival Call, France. Deadline: Mar 16, 2016

FESTIVAL PHOTOREPORTER
IN BAIE DE SAINT BRIEUC
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS – 2016
The fifth edition of the International Festival Photoreporter in the Baie of Saint
Brieuc launches its call for applications. The festival continues its desire to help
produce photo documentaries that show our world in its diversity, hence
applicants are completely free to choose their thematic.
The artistic director of the coming edition of the Photoreporter festival in the
Baie of Saint Brieuc is Marc Prüst, photography consultant and specialist in
photographic storytelling.

The winning photographers will receive a grant that corresponds to their
proposed budgets, between the amounts of 5 000 and 8 000 euros. The budgets
should be detailed per post including the fees for the photographer.
The festival will produce and finance the prints for the exhibitions. Once
selected, the photographers will have until mid July to create their reportage so
that their projects can be exhibited during the festival from the 1st October to
the 30th October 2016.

The production and realization of these photographic projects is the result of a
mobilization of private enterprises who have created together a collective fund (a
so-called Fonds de Dotation) to support Photoreporter in Baie of Saint Brieuc.

The prize also comprises an artist residency for all five winners.

POPCAP, le prix de piclet.org pour la photographie africaine contemporaine est décerné aux photographes dont le travail traite du continent africain et/ou de sa diaspora. Le prix offre une couverture médiatique mondiale lors d’expositions de photographie internationales majeures.

POPCAP vise à mettre l’accent sur la photographie africaine dans le monde de l’art. Chaque année, cinq lauréats sont sélectionnés par un panel de juges internationaux afin de promouvoir la photographie africaine à une échelle mondiale, tout en évitant une vision unilatérale, géographique ou culturelle, des portfolios. Grâce à sa large présence dans le contexte quotidien, nous considérons la photographie comme étant le média idéal pour favoriser l’échange d’idées sur l’image de l’Afrique en toute liberté.

POPCAP a été lancé par Benjamin Füglister en 2012. Lors de sa première édition, cinq gagnants ont été choisis parmi 140 dossiers soumis par un panel de neuf juges de nationalités différentes. En 2013, POPCAP a reçu 360 candidatures venant de 57 pays, qui ont été évaluées par un jury composé de 14 personnes. L’édition 2014 de POPCAP a reçu 720 dossiers de 88 pays qui ont été jugés par un panel de 23 juges internationaux. Les plus ou moins 800 candidatures pour POPCAP 2015 ont été évaluées par 19 experts venant du monde entier, et les cinq portfolios vainqueurs ont été présentés lors de 7 expositions d’art internationales.

 

Le prix consiste en une couverture mondiale lors d’expositions de photographie internationales, y compris les expositions POPCAP à Image Afrique à Bâle, en Suisse, au festival LagosPhoto au Nigéria, au FIFCV Festival Internacional de Fotografia de Cabo Verde et à Eyes On – Mois Européen de la Photographie à Vienne. POPCAP invite toujours les artistes gagnants à l’exposition principale, Image Afrique, qui est tenue durant Art Basel à Bâle, en Suisse. Tous les lauréats, ainsi que leurs portfolios respectifs, figurent dans le catalogue POPCAP ainsi que dans le répertoire de portfolios de photographes triés sur le volet de piclet.org.

Chacun des cinq vainqueurs a la chance de participer à une résidence d’artiste et sera représenté par la plupart de nos partenaires média.
