CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The Foundation of Visual Education has opened the call for Grand Prix Fotofestiwal 2019 to gives photographers an opportunity to present their works during Fotofestiwal and awards artists with exceptional personality and projects that present daring ideas.

Fotofestiwal was established in 2001 as one of the first photography events in Poland. Since then it has grown into one of the most important and biggest photographic festivals in the Central Europe but its core mission has not changed: presenting photography in its various ways (via exhibitions, films, slideshows, workshops etc.) but also talking about important social issues and introducing the unobvious beauty and unique history of our city to the audience. For such reason we organize thematic exhibitions in various post-industrial spaces,put stress on networking parties – (we are quite famous for those), but also every year we try to develop new ways of talking about photography: via events such as Photo-Match: Completely Different Portfolio Review, during which we focus on having equal status granted to the curators as well as artists, with formula of presentation that numerous festivals are applying now worldwide with a success. Since 2016 we work as a collective, with no board, developing a new way of cultural institution management.
