Passepartout Photo Prize – 9th Edition – Rome

Il Varco invites you to join the ninth Passepartout Photo 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 1,000 Euro in monetary prizes every year, organizing exhibition in a fine art gallery in the heart of Rome, publication in our partners’ magazines, and other opportunities

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, curators and educators who bring kaleidoscopic perspectives into our selection process.

It 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. AI-generated images as a part of the photographic process are accepted.

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

The annual exhibition will take place in Rome, Italy, in autumn 2024. The exhibition will be hosted by 28 Piazza di Pietra Fine Art Gallery, an international gallery specializing 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.

The collective showcase features the selected works of the Passepartout Photo Prize winners and Exhibition Prize winners.
