Grand Prix Fotofestiwal 2018
Grand Prix gives photographers an opportunity to present their works during Fotofestiwal (Łódź/Poland). We award artists with exceptional personality and projects that present daring ideas. The submission is open and does not impose any restrictions related to topics, age or place.
Fotofestiwal was established in 2001 as one of the first photography events in Poland. It was a spontaneous initiative of students and lecturers of the Sociology Department. Since then, photography and ways of organizing cultural events have transformed. The same has been true for Fotofestiwal itself – we have a different perspective towards the program, we work differently, our viewer’s needs have changed. Still, Fotofestiwal remains a space for presenting various forms and types of photography, a forum for discussion about art and society, a motivation to search for alternative methods of discussing and exhibiting photography. But first of all, invariably, it is a place where people meet.

The competition is open and does not impose any restrictions related to topics, age or place.
