For the past 17 years, Voies Off has offered an alternative approach to emerging contemporary photography, its particularities, its evolutions, and its areas of resistance.
Every July, the Voies Off prize is awarded by a jury of renowned professionals to an artist for the clarity of his/her vision and the high quality of his/her work. The current amount of the prize is 2,500 euros.
No restriction regarding age or nationality.
Participants in the Voies Off Prize are: all amateur or professional photographers, artists, associations, collectives, groups, galleries, agencies, or schools... using photography as their medium.
A commission will select the applications presenting originality and a personal approach. The works must be organized as a series showing coherent thinking developed through a theme, a personal vision.
The main criterion considered by the commission will be a personal and creative vision.
From their usual browsers, candidates will fill out an on-line registration form, pay a 25 euros registration fee, then up-load their photographs using an access code that Voies Off will provide via email.
