Fashion photography Prize. Deadline: Dec 1, 2016

PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION CALL FOR ENTRIES
Submission deadline : December 1st, 2016
Download regulation on http://www.villanoailles-hyeres.com
Information : enquiry.photocompetition@villanoailles-hyeres.com

Every Spring in the South of France, the Festival spotlights young promising artists in the fields of fashion and photography. The festival proposes diverse exhibitions, professional panel discussions and three competitions. These competitions highlight ten fashion designers, ten photographers and ten accessories designers, who are selected by a jury of professionals in each field. The work of the selected artists is presented to the jury members and general public during either fashion shows (for the fashion designers), a group exhibition (for the photographers) or a group exhibition and a video (for the accessories designers).

On the last days of the month of April, as every Spring since 1997, the villa Noailles will once again become the epicenter for emerging photography.

There, in the photography section of the Festival de Hyères, ten artist-photographers will exhibit their personal conjugation of the verb to see. Hyères defends and praises photographic works that strive for sense, singularity, innovation and uncompromising artistic standards. The bodies of work spotlighted at Hyères are still being born. Yet, the articulateness of their aesthetic stances confidently allows us to bet on their projection into the future. Attentively sorted and short-listed, an imposing lot of nearly 800 worldwide submissions is put under the scrutiny and appraisal of an international jury of professionals that gathers, late January, in Paris. The jury’s choice of the ten photographers to showcase sets in motion an exacting curatorial and production process that will culminate shortly in the unveiling to the public, on the walls of the villa Noailles, of an exciting group exhibition: ten new artistic visions that will help shape the photography of tomorrow.

During the three days of the festival, the selected photographers meet to discuss their exhibited work and ongoing portfolios with the members of the jury. Art dealers, museum curators, art critics, art directors for magazines or advertising agencies, among past Festival jurors we can randomly mention Urs Stahel (Fotomuseum Winterthur), Marloes Krijnen (FOAM, Amsterdam), Dennis Freedman (W, New York), Charlotte Cotton, Glenn O’Brien, Marta Gili (Jeu de Paume, Paris), Jörg Koch (032C, Berlin), James Reid (Wallpaper*, London), Frits Gierstberg (Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam),
Kathy Ryan (New York Times, New York), David Campany (London), Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), Charles Fréger (photographer, France), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam), Brett Rogers (The Photographer’s Gallery, London), Karen Langley (Dazed, London), Winfried Heininger (Kodoji Press, Switzerland), Damien Poulain (Oodee, London), Jason Evans (photographer, United Kingdom), Mutsuko Ota (IMA, Tokyo), etc. Agents, art dealers and art directors, all eager to meet new talent, also attend the Festival. The Hyères meetings between artists and jurors render possible an in-depth discussion – elsewhere highly improbable – about the photographer’s work and its potentialities. An intellectually intense exchange between photographers and key figures of the artistic and commercial spheres, these one to one meetings have often proved fruitful opening for the photographers the doors to different media, from the pages of a magazine to the walls of a museum or an advertising campaign.

PARTNERS
The Festival is organised by the Association villa Noaillesand has been financed through the support of the City of Hyères, since its creation in 1986, and since 2003 by the Communauté d’agglomération Toulon Provence Méditerranée, with the support of Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles (ministère de la Culture et de la Communication), of Conseil Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, of Conseil Départemental du Var.
