Switzerland’s Festival Images Vevey has recently opened the registration for 2017/2018, for its biannual international photography competition — the Grand Prix Images Vevey.
Open to all artists and professional and student photographers, the competition grants the winner the indivisible sum of 40,000 CHF (approx. 37,000 Euro) for the development, achievement and presentation of a project at the following Festival Images.
Festival Images Vevey awards a separate award to support the creation of a book project that showcases an optimal and original balance between publication format and photographic content — the Images Vevey Book Award, which includes a 10,000 CHF (approx. 9,000 Euro) grant. It provides a financial contribution that seeks to encourage artists to take risks and to innovate in order for them to develop a suitable and sophisticated publication format for their photography project.
Grand Prix Images Vevey international photography competition takes place every odd year, alternating with Festival Images Vevey.
A jury made up of picture professionals will meet at the end of April 2017 to select the prize-winners. The winning projects will be produced during the year and will be presented at the next Festival Images Vevey from 8 to 30 September 2018.
