Call for entries

Deadline: 24th May 2010 (postmarked)

+1000 Photography Festival will launch its second edition in 2011. In the village of Rossinière, in a setting of a rare beauty in the foothills of the Vaud Alps, Alt. +1000 offers visitors from Switzerland and overseas the pleasure of discovering a mountain village with eight photographic exhibitions located within this charming village. The photographic work must be based on the theme of +1000 metres altitude. All genres, approaches and techniques are welcome : artistic, conceptual or documentary, featuring the life of mountain inhabitants and/or their environment. Alt. +1000 is a festival which aims to capture different perceptions of the mountain. The selection of the works will be carried out by a jury of professionals.

The photographers retained will :
• exhibit their works during the summer
at different sites in Rossinière.
• be offered financial assistance to produce
their prints.
• benefit from the festival publicity in
the media and from a diverse group of
visitors (tourists and connoisseurs of
photography and contemporary art).

The portfolio, in A4 format, should include a maximum of 20 images. Whether silver or digital, the photographs should be presented as work prints or good quality photocopies (20x25 cm max). The portfolio should present either existing work on the theme of +1000 metres or a project to be developed, together with images which are representative. The candidate’s name and address must be marked on the back of each image or document. A brief presentation/explanation of the project (one page maximum in English or French) including basic information on the technique and size of work to be exhibited should be sent with a C.V.
