One region, plural visions


Dear students of the arts, design or visual communication, the Institut Français du Design has great pleasure in inviting you to observe and explore various facets of the Mediterranean region, an arena that is home to civilisations, urban activities and maritime activities: the blossoming of its culinary and cultural heritage, material and spiritual, and the evolution of trade between its peoples, waters and lands, will have the effect of transforming, and possibly disrupting, its future. An uncertain future, whether close or distant, which we invite you to transcribe and photograph. 


The jury will be attentive to an original presentation of new uses, to the strength of the from the humanistic vision and the artistic, sensory and emotional scope of your prospective documentary photographic project, which you may submit on the dedicated application platform from 3 May. The list of winners will be displayed at the Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles from 3 July to 24 September 2023.
