OpenWalls is a groundbreaking international awards series, aimed at creating opportunities for emerging and established photographers to exhibit their work in reputable locations. By forming new relationships and collaborating with respected galleries across the world, we are able to open up the walls of otherwise exclusive spaces and to offer the chosen artists a wider platform to exhibit their work.
Partnering with Galerie Huit Arles, a remarkable 17th century mansion and gallery, OpenWalls Arles is providing photographers with the chance to exhibit their work in a month-long group show located in the city’s cultural heart. By entering, your work could be shown alongside the leading names in international modern photography to coincide with Les Rencontres d’Arles 2019.
In response to the theme ‘Home & Away’, 50 successful images will be chosen by a judging panel of key figures, before three finalists are invited to join us in Arles in July 2019, to attend the opening event of the exhibition, where the overall winner will be chosen and announced.
