And… The prize?
Participating in the screening is an opportunity that can propel your project as far as you are willing, and the contacts and knowledge you can acquire on this day are, in themselves, a prize.
But there’s more; from all the projects screened, one will be selected to participate as an exhibition in the Revela’t 2025 festival. The festival will take care of the production, setup, and expenses related to the exhibition.
This prize will be selected by the Revela’t team, taking into account the opinions and advice of the viewers. The prize will be announced once the current edition is concluded.
For the selection of the project to be exhibited in the 2025 festival, the quality of the project, its alignment with the theme of the 2025 edition, and its compatibility with the exhibition discourse will be considered.
- Registration start date 19/12/2023
- End date of registration 12/02/2024
- Date of announcement of decision 11/03/2024
- Event date 24/05/2024
I would like to submit more than one project, is this possible?
Yes, of course. You can submit as many projects as you wish, each one counts as one submission.
Can I apply as a duo or collective?
Yes, but in case you are selected, only one representative will be allowed to come to the screening day.
Can I submit projects that have already been produced and typeset?
The Portfolio Viewing is a great opportunity to make contacts and gain international exposure, but above all it is a moment to learn, listen and exchange opinions and criticisms with professionals who can make your project grow or improve in the future. You can present a finished project, but we encourage you to come open to give it a twist and welcome other views and contributions about it.
What does the registration and participation fee cover?
The €20 fee contributes to the administration and promotion costs that cover the selection process and the equipment and material for the event. If you are a Friend of Revela’t, as you already contribute to the festival in another way, you benefit from a 50% discount on the registration fee. In no case the registration fee will be refunded. The participation fee partially covers the expenses of the team involved in the event (coordination, production and jury). The participation fee (100€) will be paid ONLY by the photographers selected for the viewing. The friend discount does not apply to the participation fee.
If I am a Friend of Revela't, how can I get my 50% discount?
All Revela’t Friends will receive a CODE by mail to enter the call with the discount.
Is it possible to listen in on the viewings?
No, the Portfolio Viewing is a closed-door activity, which can only be attended by the photographers selected in the call.
What happens if I am unable to attend the viewing?
Any change of attendance and timetable must be notified at least 30 calendar days before the viewing day. In the event of not being able to attend, 50% of the participation fee will be refunded. If 30 days notice cannot be given, the participation fee will not be refunded, as it is considered that the organization does not have enough time to replace the vacant place.
Can I submit a digital project?
Yes, in the Portfolio Viewing you can submit both analogue and digital projects.
If I am selected, can I carry the images on my computer?
No. Selected photographers must bring their images on paper, size A5 to A3.
