OPEN CALL BASES

MANIFESTO

In 2022 we will celebrate the tenth edition of the festival. It seems like a lot of TIME, but everyone knows that the speed of time is inversely proportional to how much you enjoy it. We have enjoyed a lot  and that’s why it flew by; it has not been by any space-time contraction due to the general relativity, though it often seems so to us.

They say that TIME is linear and always works in one direction, forward, although with photography we can look back, and this, to those of us who have already certain age, makes us realize that as it progresses, it favors us less. 😉 “Tempus fugit, …” you’ve probably seen it in some sundial, a Latin expression that reminds us that TIME escapes us, and invites us not to lose it. And what better way to do that than participating in this call for the 2022 edition.

We have to tell you that this time we will choose many more projects for the call, that there will be more prizes and that participating in it can open many doors for you and make TIME pass you even faster, or maybe slower, you choose.

The motto this year will be “Tempus Fugit…”, a veeeeery broad concept, that can give a lot of itself, and opens to many interpretations: long-term (or short) projects, long exposures, periods, clocks, measurements, comparisons, movement, freezing… whatever you think will surely fit.

You just have to try. You have TIME until 31th December 2021.

Are you in?

CALENDAR

The TENTH edition of the Revela-T Festival will be held in September 2022. The exhibition halls will be open on weekends and during previously established activities or visits.

The call for the presentation of projects will be in force from now until December 31, 2021. Once this period has passed, no exhibition proposals will be accepted.

WORK PRESENTATION

To present your project, you have to fill in the registration form with all the information we ask for. Once you’ve send your work and do the 20€ payment via Paypal you would be in! The work doesn’t have to be exclusive, even though it’s a plus !

 SELECTION

We will study each of the proposals, we will make the selection of those that will be exhibited, and we will contact via email with all the participants indicating whether they have been selected or not.

It will be valued that the works are unpublished and recent. Proposals that develop or contain the concept or the design of the exhibition installation will also be valued. Or those that are already produced and ready to exhibit. In any case, they will be accompanied by the plans or diagrams of order, distribution or installation.

Although it would be our wish, the Festival Organization cannot assume the production costs of the selected works.

WORK SELLING

In order for the participants to be able to compensate the expenses involved in exhibiting at the festival, we have thought that the photographers who wish to do so can send us a list of works and prices that can be offered to interested persons, collectors, gallery owners, etc.

RETURN

The Festival will return the works within a period of 2 months from the end of the Festival. The return costs are in charge of the author and will be sent through a transport agency. There is also the possibility of collecting the works personally.

The works will be reviewed by the author at the time of being received by the carrier to verify that they are in good condition and without damage. If not, he will have to hold the carrier accountable.

ASSEMBLY

An assembly company will take over the installation of the works. The assembly will take place during the week prior to the opening day of the Festival.

The presence of all authors who can come to give assembly instructions, whether of order, distribution or installation, will be appreciated. In the latter case, if the installation is preferred by the author himself, he will be able to count on the help of the assembly company.

For the good and rapid development of the assembly, shifts and schedules will be established.
