The Foundation of Visual Education (Fundacja Edukacji Wizualnej) has opened the call for its 2019 Grand Prix Fotofestiwal photography competition.
The submission is open and does not impose any restrictions related to topics, age or place.
Grand Prix gives photographers an opportunity to present their works during Fotofestiwal. Artists of exceptional personality and projects that present daring ideas are awarded. There’s also a financial prize of 10,000 Polish złoty (~2,500 Euro).
The works of the six finalists will be exhibited during Fotofestiwal to over 20.000 viewers. Finalists will also be invited to the festival.
Shortlisted works will be announced on 11th January 2019.
Fotofestiwal was established in 2001 as one of the first photography events in Poland. Since then it has grown into one of the most important and biggest photographic festivals in Central Europe, but its core mission has not changed: presenting photography in its various ways (via exhibitions, films, slideshows, workshops etc.) but also talking about important social issues and introducing the unobvious beauty and unique history of our city to the audience.
Fotofestiwal 2019 will take place in Łódź, Poland, 13th-30th June, 2019.
