Apply to one of the most interesting and original contests for emerging photographers and become a part of the prestigious festival.
The Voies Off Award, now in its 22nd year, has been a unique opportunity for fresh generations of photographers since its foundation. It provides substantial cash prizes, but it’s far more than that. The Voies Off night projections during the opening week of the Rencontres d’Arles festival have become an international spot for discovering emerging talents (the early Antoine d’Agata among them) and an alternative venue for photographic creation.
Like every year, 60 finalist will be selected for night screenings shown to the festival audience and an international crowd of critics, curators, publishers, media and world’s top photographers. In addition, they will compete for three major prizes that will be announced at the end of the festival opening week.
The winner of the 2017 Voies Off Award will receive 5,000 €.
The winner of the SAIF Revelation Award will receive 2,500 €.
The winner of the lacritique.org Award will be granted a publication accompanied by an introductory text by an art critic.
All participants of the contest will be granted a free pass to the festival portfolio reviews in Arles, 4-8 July 2017.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 February 2017.
