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.

PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Registration deadline : November 30, 2019
Download regulation on http://www.villanoailles-hyeres.com
Information : photocompetition@villanoailles-hyeres.com
Every Spring in the South of France, the Festival spotlights young promising artists in the fields of fashion, accessories and photography. The festival proposes diverse exhibitions, professional panel discussions and three competitions. The competitions showcase 10 fashion designers, 10 accessories designers and 10 photographers selected by a jury of professionals in each field. The work of the chosen candidates is presented to the jury and the public in either fashion shows (designers) or group exhibitions (accessories designers, photographers). On the last days of the month of April, as every Spring since 1998, 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 Jean-Paul Goude (Paris), Thomas Bonnoouvrier (Art+Commerce, Paris), Jörg Koch (032C, Berlin), Frits Gierstberg (Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam), Kathy Ryan (New York Times, New York), David Campany (Londres), Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), Charles Fréger (France), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam), Brett Rogers (The Photographer’s Gallery, London), Winfried Heininger (Kodoji Press, Switzerland), Jason Evans (photographer), Mutsuko Ota (IMA, Tokyo), Craig McDean (New York), Tim Walker (London), Simon Costin (London), 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.

CONCOURS PHOTOGRAPHIE
APPEL À CANDIDATURES
Date limite d’inscription : 30 novembre 2019
Téléchargez le règlement sur http://www.villanoailles-hyeres.com
Renseignements : photocompetition@villanoailles-hyeres.com
Le Festival de Hyères met tout en œuvre pour promouvoir la jeune création dans les domaines de la mode, de l’accessoire et de la photographie. Chaque année, dans le cadre intimiste de la villa Noailles, le festival s’organise autour de trois concours, d’expositions et de tables rondes. Les concours rassemblent dix stylistes, dix créateurs d’accessoires et dix photographes, sélectionnés par des jurys de professionnels. Les créations des candidats sélectionnés sont présentées sous forme de défilés pour le concours mode et d’expositions collectives pour les concours accessoires de mode et photographie.

Chaque printemps, la villa Noailles, à Hyères, devient l’épicentre de la création photographique émergente. Le Festival d’Hyères, dans son volet photographie, expose dix artistes ; dix manières de réinventer le regard. Y sont appréciées – défendues – des œuvres singulières, novatrices à force de choix tranchés, sans compromis. Il s’agit bien d’œuvres en gestation, mais dont les propos construits permettent de parier sur leur projection dans l’avenir. Au terme du processus de sélection, passant par un examen de plusieurs centaines de candidatures venant de tous pays, dix photographes sont choisis par un jury international réuni à Paris au cours du mois de janvier.

À la suite de ces délibérations commence un exigeant travail de commissariat et de production pour dévoiler au public, sur les murs de la villa Noailles, dix visages de la photographie de demain. Pendant quatre jours, les photographes sélectionnés rencontrent, autour de leurs œuvres exposées et de leur portfolio, le jury composé de galeristes, directeurs de musée, critiques d’art, directeurs de création de magazines ou d’agences de publicité.

Citons pêle-mêle parmi les anciens jurys Jean-Paul Goude (Paris), Thomas Bonnouvrier (Art+Commerce, Paris), Jörg Koch (032C, Berlin), Frits Gierstberg (Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam), Kathy Ryan (New York Times, New York), David Campany (Londres), Joerg Colberg (Conscientious), Charles Fréger (photographe, France), Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer, Amsterdam), Brett Rogers (The Photographer’s Gallery, Londres), Winfried Heininger (Kodoji Press, Suisse), Jason Evans (photographe, Angleterre), Mutsuko Ota (IMA, Tokyo), Craig McDean (New York), Tim Walker (Londres), Simon Costin (Londres), etc.

Au sein du public du Festival circulent aussi des agents, des galeristes, des directeurs artistiques, tous en quête de découvertes.

Ces rencontres rendent possible un dialogue approfondi – fort improbable en dehors d’un tel cadre – autour des œuvres et leurs potentialités. Il s’agit d’un échange intense et fructueux entre les photographes et les décideurs des sphères artistique et commerciale, échange qui souvent, ouvre l’accès à divers supports de diffusion, allant de la page de magazine, au mur du musée ou à la commande publicitaire.
