Free Frame

FestFoto Brazil 2024 Call for Entries

The exhibition “Free Frame”, which is the result of the FestFoto Brazil Call for Entries, is a group show of international photography, where brazilian photographers engage in a visual dialogue with photographers from all over the world through the theme of the Call for Entries, enabling this dialogue to be mediated in each scenario of the international photographic community.

The theme of the FestFoto Brazil 2024 Call for Entries will be Free Frame, a free territory for image dialogue. We want the idea of a photogram, free of themes, restraints, censorship and social, political, racial, gender and ethnic limits, to be the hallmark of this Call for Entries, opening up a territory for you to show us where your gaze and creative process are going.
We want to see work that addresses racial issues and is produced by black photographers. That address LGBTQ+ gender issues and are produced by photographers from this social territory. We want to see photographs produced by indigenous photographers.

The FestFoto 2024 Call for Entries is open to all photographers from all over the world and welcomes entries in two categories:
Multimedia – with a video presentation of an authorial exhibition of no more than 3 minutes in length.
Portfolio – with a maximum of 15 images.

A jury made up of national and international curators will select 10 finalists from the two categories who will be exhibited at FestFoto 2024. Of the 10 finalists, one winner will be chosen for the Multimedia category and one winner for the Portfolio category. The two winners will receive a Free Passport to participate in the International Online Portfolio Reviews Platform FestFoto Brazil 2024. The top 5 winners will have their work reviewed on the FestFoto website throughout 2024/2025.

During the selection process we will also be displaying on our website a gallery of submitted works that caught the eye of our jury.
