Passepartout Photo Prize – 5th Edition

Il Varco invites you to join the fifth edition of the Passepartout Photography Prize, a photography contest born to promote and widen the exposure of emerging photographers.

Passepartout Photo Prize aims to support the development of talented photographers from all over the world by awarding monetary prizes every year, organizing exhibition in a fine art gallery in the heart of Rome, publication in the annual catalogue as well as in our partners’ magazines.

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

Passepartout Photo Prize 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.

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

This year’s exhibition will take place in Rome, Italy, in September 2022. The exhibition will be hosted by 28 Piazza di Pietra Fine Art Gallery, an international gallery specialized 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.
