Arles 2012: Prix Voies Off

© Marlous Van Der Slott, Sélection Prix Voies Off 2011

For the past 17 years, Voies Off has offered an alternative approach to emerging contemporary photography, its particularities, its evolutions, and its areas of resistance. Voies Off night projections during the opening week of the Rencontres d’Arles festival (first full week in July) have become an international reference for the discovery of emerging authors and the alternative venue that it creates for international photographic creation. Year after year, the selected themes have met the evolution of our contemporary world with a critical eye. Over twenty different nationalities are represented at each festival. Every year over sixty candidates are selected for the programme of the night-projections.
Every July, the Voies Off prize is awarded by a jury of renowned professionals to an artist for the clarity of their vision and the high quality of their work. The amount of the prize is 2,500 euros.
