Open Call to exhibit at Revela’t 2024
The call for submissions aims to select three projects carried out in the field of analog photography that will be awarded (production, transport, and fee) and displayed at the next edition of the Revela’t Festival during May and June of 2024. Apart from these first three awarded projects, several more can be selected for exhibition if their authors wish, but in this case without the award benefits.
The exhibition opportunity at the festival includes support for the travel and stay of the winners, international promotion and meeting spaces with other professionals in the cultural field and specifically photography.
The call is open to all photographers who have an analog project and the ambition, desire and motivation to show it to the world. Revela’t is a projection platform that places internationally renowned and emerging photographers at the same level and welcomes them every year, because we believe in the strength of projects and the importance of giving opportunities to authors who do not yet have a career consolidated, Revela’t means international projection at any level of the author’s path.
All the participants, selected or not, will have the opportunity to share their work in a digital projection that will take place at the festival’s main venue.
The deadline for the call has been extended until October 18, 2023.
About the Festival
The Revela’t Contemporary Analog Photography Festival is the first analog festival in the world and has been held for twelve years in Vilassar de Dalt (Barcelona, Spain). The festival is a month-long celebration of analog photography that includes exhibitions, markets, workshops, portfolio reviews, residencies… and many other activities, bringing together in the same space relevant and emergent artists, some of them being exhibited for the first time.
During the MainWeekend of the festival, all the authors meet in person, a multitude of activities and meetings are prepared such as a brunch with gallerists, curators, editors and other professionals in the photographic field, guided tours, presence in the media, conferences … One of the most valuable things you will get from the Revela’t are the important contacts you will meet and the relationships you will create here.
