Photograph of Marc Ávila Català, winner of the “Exhibition at Revela’T 2021” award in the viewings of the last 2020 edition.

Do you want to turn the page of this 2020, right?

Let’s look to the future with optimism and let’s focus on the edition of this expected 2021.

As every year we call for participation to choose to exhibit your work together with photographs who have been selected by the team throughout the year.

In this unusual year we have learned to value (more) certain things that perhaps we had forgotten, time has acquired a new dimension, and we have possibly used it to do what always demanded a better moment, we may even have become more creative than before … but, above all, we have learned that culture and art are the food of our soul.

For this reason, in this edition of 2021 we will focus on showing works, perhaps more personal, more introspective, more authoritative, philias or phobias, obsessions, that which we have not stopped doing repeatedly (photography) and that in the end we have realized that defines us, that shows our own universe.

Their own universes, in the plural, because each one has its own. This motto is very broad and can accommodate many and very different themes, it is open to all kinds of projects and proposals.

It’s up to you. Without fear. What job is the one that would best define you as a photographer? That is the one we want to see, show us, participate in the ninth edition with great photographers and many other exhibitions.

Surely we will see many small-format works, intimate and emotional works, but we will also take to the streets, allowing ourselves the licence of technical hybridization to see large formats, and also, why not ?, collections (which are already their own universes), installations, montages, we would like to explore other formats, tell us what you do …

Participating is very easy….
