Call For Applications Photographers 2022


12th edition


The programme is based on a selection of artists elected by a jury following the European call for applications, invited artists and a focus on a European country. The artistic direction is provided by the Fetart Collective’s Artistic Committee.

Around this large-scale exhibition, which brings together some forty European photographers in a space of 2,000 m2, educational activities (tours for children, guided visits by the artists, screenings, etc.) and workshops (portfolio readings, photo studio, etc.) are organised for the general public and young photographers.

The Circulation(s) 2022 festival will be held at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS, a multidisciplinary cultural venue in eastern Paris, from 31 March to 29 May. The festival also has a tradition of organising “off the wall” events.

The call for entries is open to all European photographers or photographers residing in Europe, at the beginning of their career as authors. There is no theme. At the end of the call for applications, some twenty photographers forming a panorama of the new generation of European photographers will be exhibited at Circulation(s).

Each year, the Circulation(s) festival strives to reveal the vitality of young creation and to defend the diversity of photographic writing through exhibitions and unique events. The festival takes place at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS and is extended to satellite venues in France, Europe and internationally in the form of off-site exhibitions and tours.

A springboard for artists, a forward-looking and innovative laboratory for contemporary creativity, Circulation(s) has established itself as a key event in photography and a trend-setter. Since its creation in 2011, the festival has exhibited more than 400 artists and gathered more than 300,000 visitors around an ever-stronger desire to be both a popular and demanding event.
Founded on the values of education and transmission around the image, Circulation(s) adapts to the current context by reinventing the formats of events and meetings. Whether digital or physical, these meetings create dialogues between artists, professionals and the public, confronting views and questioning the boundaries between photography and contemporary art.

Circulating images also means circulating the ideas of a new generation of photographers.
