OPEN CALL REVELA'T 2023

The call for exhibitions is open to all photographers who have an analogue project and the ambition, desire and motivation to show it to the world by exhibiting at the first festival of contemporary analogue photography on the planet.

We are looking for interesting proposals, which are linked to the theme of the edition, “Paths” from original perspectives and points of view. An open, simple and suggestive theme, which can take us to many places; paths of life, imaginary, marked or peripatetic paths; or the literal path, which gives us the opportunity to discover new landscapes. Show us your path, how far do you want to go?

Revela’T is a projection platform that puts on the same level and embraces internationally important photographers with emerging photographers because we believe in the strength of the projects and in the importance of giving opportunities to authors who may not yet have a recognized trajectory, and thus, Revela’T is a means of international projection in this first stage of its path.

 Three winning projects will be selected to be exhibited at Revela’T Festival 2023, but all participants will be given the opportunity to share their project in a digital screening that will take place at the Festival’s main venue. 

 

SING UP HERE!

CALENDAR

The ELEVENTH edition of the Revela-T Festival will be held from 3 to 18 June 2023.

The call for projects will be open from now until 20 December 2022. After this period, no exhibition proposals will be accepted.

The jury will give its verdict on 2 February 2023.

JUDGING CRITERIA

All those photographers of any nationality, origin or place of residence,who carry out their activity in both the field of chemical or analog photography, may apply. An international jury will value positively – but it won’t be mandatory- the projects with an exhibition proposal and the contemporary ones. The relation to the theme of the edition will be well considered. The jury’s decision can not be revoked.

Photographers have to take into account that 10-15 images in JPG format with at least 1500px on the long edge are required to submit a project.
