|Prizes:||Approximately 20,000 Euros|
From January 2009, as part of Images, the Festival of Visual Arts in Vevey, Switzerland, the Foundation Vevey: Ville d’Images is inviting entries for the 5th European First Film Awards and the 7th International Vevey Photo Awards. With complete freedom of choice as regards subject matter and genre, these bi-annual competitions provide precious support to contemporary creators.
The distinctive feature of these competitions is that they enable creators to carry out personal projects in the fields of film or photography through the attribution of prizes worth up to 30,000 CHF (approximately 20,000 Euros).
Over the years, through the festival Images and its two Award competitions, Vevey has become closely associated with contemporary artistic creation and visual communication.
Juries composed of Swiss and international experts in the fields of film and photography will meet in May and June 2009 to examine the projects submitted and select those which are considered to be outstanding in terms of quality or originality. The projects that receive awards will be completed and shown at the next edition of the festival Images in September 2010.
