Sleeping one more hour or living one more hour?
The night between October 26th and 27th is one hour longer, switching from summertime to wintertime. If you are tempted to remain home and sleep, Planche(s) Contact, the photographic festival of Deauville invites you to spend an hour of photographic creation to make this imagined hour real.

THE SUBJECT: Capturing Deauville during the transition to wintertime, from midnight to midnight. The subject is free as long as the photo is taken in Deauville: this contest is an opportunity to share your own vision of the 25th hour.
THE PLACE: The starting signal for the contest is given at 10 pm in the place where all the participants meet to confirm their registration.
THE PHOTO: From midnight on, the participants can submit their digital file. Pictures are printed during the night, displayed on the following morning and then submitted to the jury.
