FCBarcelona Photo Awards. Deadline Dec. 30, 2016

Description

The FCBarcelona Photo Awards, sponsored by Agbar and in partnership with the Fundación Foto Colectania, wish to identify work that deliberately reflects the intrinsically positive values of sport. They have been created in order to recognise these values, as viewed through the lens of contemporary photography.

The prizes will be judged by an international jury of renowned prestige. Such big names as Vicente Todolí, ex director of the Tate Modern London and Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, vice-president of pictures at the Reuters agency, will be assessing this ambitious club project, promoted from its Department of International and Institutional Relations.

FCBarcelona will be making the utmost effort to raise awareness of the awards and the winning entries on a worldwide scale by means of a variety of promotional events in different cities of Europe, the USA and Asia.

Categories, Prizes and Jury

The FCBarcelona Photo Awards are divided into two categories:

PHOTO AWARDS

This category is aimed at photographers with a proven history of working for the media, photography agencies or in the arts world, and will honour the photograph that best expresses the positive values of sport, and particularly non-professional sport.

There will be one first prize of €40,000 and 29 finalists who will receive €1,000

The winning photograph, along with the finalists, will be on show at an exhibition organised by FC Barcelona from April to June 2017.

PROJECT AWARDS

This category is aimed at photographers with a proven history of working for the media, photography agencies or in the arts world, or that have experience of project development.

The winner will receive €40,000 to carry out the photography project that best expresses the intrinsic positive values of sport and its contribution to modern society.

The winning project will be undertaken from March to October 2017 and will be exhibited along with the winning photographs in the PHOTO AWARDS category of the 2017 edition.

Comisart for Emerging Curators. Deadline: Sept. 23, 2016

Call for Applications, 2016

Comisart is a call for applications aimed at art curators under 40 years of age, with Spanish nationality or resident in Spain, who have previously curated at least three exhibitions. Any curators who already have well-established careers will not be accepted.

The three curators selected will receive a grant of 6,000 euros and will benefit from the resources and advice of the exhibitions team from the “la Caixa” Foundation.

Comisart is a two-yearly programme involving three exhibition projects based on items from the “la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection and the MACBA collections. We are committed to innovative projects, both in terms of interpretations and reflections and also regarding the creative approach and forms used.

The exhibitions will be included in the annual programming of CaixaForum Barcelona and there is also the possibility of them becoming travelling exhibitions, as well as potential collaborations with other institutions. The exhibitions may also include work by young artists embarking on their careers as a complement to items from the “la Caixa” Collection, provided these works already exist and do not form part of another institution’s collection.

Each project will be developed over a period of four months. During the first month, curators will have access to the Collection and to the teams from the “la Caixa” Foundation and MACBA in order to define the project, while all the work to prepare the exhibition will be carried out in the following three months.

KEY DATES

No projects or additional documentation can be presented outside the deadlines established in the rules of the call for applications unless the organisation announces an extension of the deadline specified in these rules.
