Call for applications for the screenings at « Nuits Photographiques de Pierrevert » 2022

 

The « Les Nuits Photographiques de Pierrevert » festival is characterized in two words: Quality and Conviviality. « Quality through the requirement of its selection, Conviviality through the reception of photographers at the inhabitant and meetings with the public »

It offers the opportunity to author-photographers to project their work alongside big names in photography.

The festival will take place between July 28 and 31, 2022.

Every evening the opening of an exhibition takes place, followed at nightfall by a collective outdoor projection of fifteen photographers in front of a large audience.

Shortlisted photographers are required to be present on the festival – at least on the day of their work's screening. However, they are invited to attend and enjoy the whole four days of the festival. Volunteer inhabitants open their homes and offer free accommodation during the whole duration of their stay.

Travel expenses are not covered.

 

Application file for screenings:

A coherent photographic project presented with a short biography, an explanatory summary and 10 to 20 photos maximum (although the subject can be developed later on a larger projection format knowing that the standard format is 3-4 mins).

As we have been doing for several years, the call is open for new scriptures. The projection being an object of visual AND sound expressions, the proposals can already be in the form of a photographic film and sent for consultation through a link...

 

Deadline for sending a file : February 21, 2022

 

The shortlisted photographers will be announced on our website end of March 2022.
