PASSEPARTOUT PHOTO PRIZE

 

Passepartout Photo Prize aims to support the development of talented photographers from all over the world by awarding 1,000 euros in monetary prizes every year, organizing exhibition in a fine art gallery in the heart of Rome, publication in our partners’ magazines, and providing other opportunities for international exposure. 

 

What makes our contest unique is that we collaborate with various professionals in the contemporary art and photography industries. Our jury is a diverse blend of photographers, editors, gallerists, curators and educators that bring kaleidoscopic perspectives into our selection process. 

 

It is an open-theme contest. Photographic works of any kind of artistic style, size and technique (digital, film and experimental processes, digital collages, and other mixed media) are accepted. AI-generated images as a part of the photographic process are accepted.

 

The application is open to photographers from all over the world without any age limit. We embrace innovative and original approaches to contemporary photography. We welcome various artistic languages applied to the photographic image, including, but not limited to, experimentation and fusion of different genres.

 

Annual exhibition will take place in Rome, Italy, every autumn. The exhibition will be hosted by 28 Piazza di Pietra Fine Art Gallery, an international gallery specialising in contemporary art of both emerging and established international artists. The gallery is located in the historic center of Rome where local and international visitors and art collectors gather. This modern gallery, beautifully integrated and built on the ancient ruin of the Hadrian Temple structure, is an impeccable site to display artworks of many genres.
