GETXOPHOTO International Image Festival invites photographers and visual artists from all over the world to share their vision on the 2018 theme Post-conflict, reframing a dialogue.

This Open Call is the opportunity to exhibit in the next edition in September 2018. The Festival aims to push preconceived boundaries about visual narration and the spaces where it is shown, predominantly exhibiting in unconventional public spaces.

The jury will be composed by Christian Caujolle, Yumi Goto, Shoair Mavlian, Simon Bainbridge and Monica Allende. A shortlisted will be published on June 22th. The winner will be announced on June 27th and his or her work will be exhibited during the Festival, which runs from September 5th to 30th 2018. The design of the exhibiton will be made under the criteria of the curator of GETXOPHOTO International Image Festival.

To make this happen GETXOPHOTO have partnered with the Der Greif Collective and submissions platform Picter.

GETXOPHOTO is a festival dedicated to image that takes place in Getxo (Basque Country, Spain) during September. It brings different proposals from photographers and visual storytellers from all over the world to the city, setting a contemporary conversation about the theme proposed each year.

The 12th edition of the Festival will reflect on the meaning of conflict. More specifically it will focus its aftermath, the consequences of conflict and the reconstruction of post-conflict dialogues. This includes how reframing a broken discourse often gives way to new possibilities, situations, ideas and relationships. The present edition also intends to explore both external and internal post-conflict struggles. These can manifest to impact everything from technology and politics to nature and education, fundamentally changing the way we live our lives.

GETXOPHOTO aims to push preconceived boundaries about visual narration (photography, video, installation, performance, intervention, digital, fiction, documentary, etc) and the spaces where it is shown, predominantly exhibiting in unconventional public spaces and creating an open dialogue with its audience while filling its everyday with images. Exhibitions, installations, projections, talks, collaborations, experimental laboratories and many activities complete the program of the Festival.

The program will be announced in June.
