The theme proposed for the fifth edition of the Festival could be summarised in the word Hidden, concealed, mysterious, secret... but in a very wide sense, as a general concept and open to interpretation.
Hidden is what it is occult, what you can’t see at first sight, what it is far away physically or emotionally, what you don’t want to see, what it is or has been taboo, what it is concealed, unnoticeable, secret or weird... We are looking for lost paradises, secret languages, angels who are devils and devils who pretend to seem angels, the most innocent wild side and anything that could fit within this description.
The fourth edition of RevelaT is going to take place from 19 to 28 May 2017. The exhibition rooms will be open during the weekends and during the activities or for on demand visits with scheduled appointment.
The weekend from 26 to 28 May will be the main one and, in addition to the exhibitions, there will be the Trade Fair and the traditional meetings of collodionists, pinholers, afghan camera photographers and friends of Leica.
This call for presentation projects will be valid from now to 15th of January 2017. We will not accept any exhibition project after this deadline.
A PRIZE AND MORE...
This year, for the first time, we've decided to create a unique prize of 1000€ for the best exhibition. The exhibition will be chosen by a jury from the festival. We hope this would encourage people even more to take part. Also the photographic association Espaifoto, organizer of the festival, will buy photographs for a total amouny of 1000€ among the photographers that exhibit in the festival.
We hope we can increase this amount in the following editions or find sponsors for a bigger prize in this edition.
The winners have to take care of the taxes that are applied in their country of residence. All taxes related to the prize will be taken care by the winner and they are his/her exclusive responsability.
By accepting this rules contestants that they are informed of the financial obligations that the prize could bring. Under no circumstances Revela-T will assume that financial responsibility.
