Open call CIRCULATION(S) festival de la jeune photographie européenne


CIRCULATION(S) is the festival dedicated to emerging photography in Europe. Each  year, at the Centquatre-Paris and satellite sites in France and abroad, it reveals the vitality of young creation and speaks for the diversity of photographic expressions through unique exhibitions and events. A stepping stone for artists, a prospective and innovative laboratory of contemporary creativity, CIRCULATION(S) has become, over the past 10 years, a must-attend photography event and a trend revealer.

The program of the festival revolves around jury-selected works following an international call for applications, invited artists, and a focus on a European country. Educational activities (activities for children, guided tours by the artists, projections, etc) and workshops (portfolio reviews, photo studios, etc) are organised during this large-scale exhibition and are geared towards both the public and young photographers.

The 2020 CIRCULATION(S) festival will take place at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS, a multicultural and multidisciplinary community center on the East side of Paris from March 6 to May 2 2021. The exhibition is also extended to various locations outside the walls of the Centquatre-Paris, at the same time as the festival.

The call for applications targets all European photographers including citizens and residents of Europe, starting their professional career in photography. There is no theme. Following the call for applications, around twenty photographers will be selected and exhibited within Circulation(s), thus creating an overview of the new generation of European photographers.
