Fotofestiwal is a space for presentation and discussion on society, environment and photography itself. It is a vivid place for meeting, sharing and exchanging.
An Open Call for Fotofestiwal Open Program provides an opportunity to present your works to the audience of the International Festival of Photography held in June 2024 in Łódź, Poland. Artists with exceptional projects which present bold visions are welcome to apply. From among the submitted projects, the jury will select six which, in cooperation with the curators of Fotofestiwal, will be presented in the form of an exhibition.
From the submitted projects, at least one artist each year is nominated for the FUTURES program, a Europe-based photography platform bringing together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world.
The call for entries is open, with no thematic or age limits and regional restrictions. Each participant can submit up to two projects including 10 to 20 photos each. Winners will receive a budget of up to 500 EUR to exhibit during Fotofestiwal in Łódź plus an artistic fee of 400 EUR. Accommodation for the main opening weekend of the festival plus reimbursement of travel costs are included.
Fotofestiwal was established in 2001 as one of the first photography events in Poland. Since then it has grown into one of the most relevant photographic festivals in Europe, 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 Łódź to the audience. For such reason they organize thematic exhibitions in various post-industrial spaces, which Łódź is well known for. Since 2016 they work as a collective, with no board of directors, developing a new way of cultural institution management.
