What is Revela’T?

Revela’T is an international photographic festival dedicated to contemporary analog photography.

Where is it held?

Mainly in Vilassar de Dalt (Barcelona), but also in the city of Barcelona and since last year we do a spin-off in Madrid (Revela’T Winter Madrid) and we are studying to do so in other cities.

When is the 2020 edition held?

For this eighth edition, the scheduled dates are from June 5 to 21, 2020.

During the first weekend, there will be activities in Barcelona city; the second will be the most powerful with the reception of artists, fairs and other activities and during the third and last one only the exhibitions will be open. The exhibition will be open every day from 5 to 21 June.
The Revela’T Winter Madrid probably will take place on January 2020.

What activities will we find?

The exhibitions are the basis of the festival. Around 30 in Vilassar and 20 in Barcelona. You will also find a Trade Fair with countless materials, cameras, films, accessories, etc; a fair selling works with the presence of its authors, workshops, debates, presentations, children’s activities and this year we are looking to be able to carry out a portfolio review.

How can I participate?

There are many ways, until December 2, 2019, you can apply for the call to exhibit. This year there are two ways to do it. Here it is explained in much more detail.

How will I know if I have been selected?

At the end of December, the results of the call will be communicated publicly and privately to those who have submitted their works.

If you want to send loose photos you can do it directly without passing any call.

Where should they be sent?

ASSOCIACIÓ FOTOGRÀFICA ESPAIFOTO Calle Pau Piferrer, 24.08339 Vilassar de Dalt (Barcelona).

Is there a cost to participate?

No, it’s free, you just have to take care of the shipping costs.

Is there some kind of prize?

We are trying to find an award for the best collection presented to the call, but we need a sponsor 😉

Can I sell my pictures at the festival?

That’s exactly what it’s all about. If you are selected, you will be asked to send us a complete list of all the photographs of your exhibition and the prices of each of them.

There are other ways to sell, too. You can participate in the call for the Author Photography Market.

What kind of workshops can be done?

Workshops and presentatios aren’t yet programmed. Workshops are usually held in Barcelona between the first and second weekends and you can sign up from the web a few months before.

Is it true that a portfolio review will be done this year?

It’s our hope and we’re already contacting different photographers, curators. Portfolios may be analog or digital but in physical format only.

What is the cost of going to the festival?

There are many free activities. There is a cheap ticket for the exhibitions that serves to partially finance the festival, almost nothing compared to everything you can see and enjoy. BCN expos are free as they are in galleries.

What am I going to find at the festival?

People like you, fond of photography, in community and with access to big names in a magnificent environment and where you will surely meet great friends, people and photographers.

Magnificent exhibitions and many activities in which you can participate.

What days are the best to go?

If you are going to be several days the best is from the first to the second weekend that is when  there are more activities. Also during the previous days there are workshops and many activites to enjoy at the festival.

How can I plan my trip… sleep, eat, etc?

In this section of the website, you can solve all those doubts.
