International Festival Photoreporter: CALL FOR ENTRIES

The International Festival Photoreporter #4, Saint-Brieuc Bay, Brittany, France.For about fifteen years, it is now common to say that photojournalism faces a crisis. It is indeed becoming more and more difficult for professional photographers to get the material resources to practice their job. The economic crisis in the press sector and the development of digital publishing have undermined the economic model of the field. The vanishing of photos agencies that used to make France one of the biggest places of photojournalism gives evidence of this observation. The topic rises quite a lot of questions, but few solutions in perspective. The festival aims at contributing to bring answers.

The third edition of the International Festival Photoreporter in the Baie of Saint-Brieuc launches its call for applications. The festival continues its desire to help produce photo documentaries that show our world in its diversity, hence applicants are completely free to choose their thematic.

The artistic director of the coming edition of the Photoreporter festival in the Baie of Saint Brieuc is Marc Prüst, photography consultant and specialist in photographic storytelling.

The winning photographers will receive a grant that corresponds to their proposed budgets, between the amounts of 5 000 and 10 000 euros. The budgets should be detailed per post including the fees for the photographer.

The festival will produce and finance the prints for the exhibitions. Once selected, the photographers will have until mid July to create their reportage so that their projects can be exhibited during the festival from Saturday 11 October to Sunday 2 November 2014.

The production and realization of these photographic projects is the result of a mobilization of private enterprises who have created together a collective fund (a so-called Fond de Dotation) to support Photoreporter in Baie of Saint Brieuc.
