Passepartout Photo Prize – 6th Edition

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

Passepartout Photography Prize aims to support the development of talented photographers from all over the world by awarding 1,000 Euro in monetary prizes every year, organizing exhibition in a fine art gallery in the heart of Rome, publication in the annual catalogue and much more.

What makes this 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, gallerists, 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.

Innovative and original approaches to contemporary photography are embraced and various artistic languages applied to the photographic image, including, but not limited to, experimentation and fusion of different genres, are welcomed.

The 2023 annual Passepartout exhibition will take place in Rome, Italy in autumn. 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.
