Images’ 6th Annual Photography Competition

The competition is open to professional artists and photographers, as well as to photographer trainees. Its first aim is to discover new talents, with no age criteria, and give them the opportunity to realize a unique project. The selected project will be exhibited at IMAGES' 08, which will take place in Vevey, Switzerland in 2008. The international jury, chaired this year by Balthasar Burkhard, is composed of key figures from the visual arts world. It will make its choice on the basis of proposed files and will designate the winners of the Grand Prix International de Photographie de Vevey as well as other awards and distinctions. The main criteria for selection will be the richness of ideas reflected in the content as well as in the form of the work.
