REALIZE YOUR PROJECT IN ONE YEAR!
The Vevey Photo Award is an international competition of photographic projects with a first prize of 30,000CHF (approx. 20,000 €). The first prize should enable the winner to realize his or her project within one year. The project must be completed in order to be exhibited at the next festival Images' in Vevey in September 2010. The jury will base its decision primarily upon the quality of ideas submitted.
There are no limitations as to the choice of subject matter or genre. The competition is open to professional artists or photographers, and to students. Its aim is to support talented creators, without any limit of age, by enabling them to carry out a personal project.
The jury is free to award special mentions to certain projects submitted. Please note that the organizers of Images' will also pick out specific projects which will be exhibited alongside the prize-winning entry during the next edition of the festival 2010.
