Organized by Fundacja Edukacji Wizualnej, Grand Prix is a competition that award artists of exceptional personality and projects that present daring ideas.
The aim of this competition is to select the most interesting projects, which shall be presented in the Grand Prix Programme of the 17. International Festival of Photography in Łódź – Fotofestiwal 2018.
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 – they have a different perspective towards the program, they work differently, their 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.
